skortila (4505) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2007
Bottled. Had this one after 40km mountainbiking, probably anything would taste great :-) But this sure is a nice one. Strong flowery hoppy aroma. Hazy, yellow-orange coloured with ugly brown yeast particles. I probably should have been more carefull with the bottle when pouring it in the glass. I was too eager. Taste is quite bitter, a bit sweet, some grapefruit in it and very flowery hoppy. Quite strong on the good quality british hops. Very pure, clean taste. Fantastic!

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2007
Bottled. Hazy golden with a rich fluffy foam. Flowery and hoppy aroma of lemon and grapefruit. Flowery and slightly resiny flavour of lemon, male malts and grapefruit. Long medium-bitter finish of grapefruity hops. Now this was a surprise from this brewery!

Ungstrup (29284) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 11, 2007
Cask at GBBF 2006. An unclear orange beer with no head. The aroma is very American with notes of grapefruit reminisence of Cascade. The flavor is a bit watery with notes of fruit - especially oranges as well as light notes of malt leading to a slightly acidic bitter end.

bierkoning (10199) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2009 Sold as "Engels" in the brewery tap in Bodegraven. 5% ABV. Golden color, hazy. Aroma has coreander, hops, citrus and flowers. "No coreander in there"’, says brewer Menno Olivier, "but I’ve used Zatec hops for dry hopping". The beer only has 22 EBU, but thanks to the dry-hopping it seems much more. Light hopbitter flavor with flowers and citrus. Lovely beer, I especially liked the aroma. 8 3 7 4 15 = 3.7 Bottle. Orange blonde color. Grapefruit, wood and raspberry in the quite outspoken aroma. Dry-hopping, no doubt. Pleasant hopbitter flavor with grapefruit. Dry out effect. Fairly long hopbitter aftertaste with grapefruit and red berries. Excellent beer!! Re-rate: Corked bottle, tasted feb 09. The color has become just a bit darker. Thin, but the American hops are clearly noticeable.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2006
Cask (GBBF 2006): Weird, tastes like a nice golden ale! Golden colour with a flat apperance. Nice grassy citric hops and grapefruit. Good biscuity malt to back it up. Tasty stuff.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2006
Cask@GBBF 06. Quite a hoppy Dutch ale, with some typical yeastyness, and slight estery fruit. Light touches of citrus (more specifically grapefruit), towards the end, lightly bitter, quite nice.

maeib (8718) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2006
Cask conditioned – gravity dispense – GBBF. A hazy dark copper coloured beer with some great orange hop notes in the aroma. The taste is also beautifully hoppy with more orange fruit notes. A great effort by this Dutch brewery at a cask conditioned beer. Long may others try and succeed likewise.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2006
Kent Beer Fest. Cask. Aroma of freshly pressed apple juice. Tastes of elderflower, apple juice and beer. Yummy. like a curious mix of cider, beer and elderberry wine. One of the more interesting beers at the festival.

harrisoni (13704) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2006
Cask gravity at Kent BF 2006. First beer of the Saturday session (3rd session for me). I had been waiting for this to come on for 2 days. Hazy amber colour with off white head. Yeasty, strong hop and grapefruit aroma. Bit earthy in mouth. Not a bad first attempt. Mouthfeel is just a little wrong.
