3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very nice refreshing summer beer. Has quite a load of all sorts of citrus flavor, with their trademark Amerillo hops, which are getting a little annoying because they’re in so many of their beers and many times for the wrong reasons. But in this case it’s used right. Doesn’t overpower and gives the floral / fruite flavors some bitter richness. Nice beer.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Bottle 33cl. Red with beige foamy head. Nice hoppy aroma, pine and little citrus. Nice bitter taste, medium rich followed by a bitter finish. This would be a pleasant beer to drink in the summer, not too strong and tasty. Good one.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 13/11/14 Labeled as Amerikaans.
Creamy white head atop a hazy copper body.
Aromatic hop nose - lots of floral herbs, grass & spice, citrus rind & pine, touch of caramelly malts.
Medium-to-full body, nice touch of malt chewiness, moderate carbonation.
Doesn’t quite explode with flavour but nicely tempered flavour on the body - once again grass, floral spice & grapefruit/lemon rind. Bitterness somewhat subdued (for style), lingering spice to finish.
Not too shabby - fail to see how it’s a Bitter of any sort though.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
hazy amber colour, medium sized creamy, slightly yellowish head; aroma of peach, tangerine, orange zest, some caramel and bread notes; taste is also dominated by fruitiness (peach, grapefruit, tangerine) with adequate amount of bitterness, some bready notes and pine resin; excellent beer, though for me, it’s more like an APA than a bitter
