3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ W. van Schaik, Vianen.
Hazy amber with a big off-white head. Aroma of exotic fruits. Sweet taste at first but with a bitter finish. The mouthfeel is quite tea-like in the way it’s a bit astringent. Thin body but first its modest ABV quite tasty nonetheless.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
hazy orange colour, minimal off-white head, which disappears promptly; excellent aroma, of intensive floral notes, honey and fruitiness (maybe mango dominance, apple and overripe figs); taste of floral hops, fruitiness (mainly figs), honey and...fruits again; a bit watery, but I really love it! great ale, though not a typical APA (it reminds me much more to the English ales)

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(bottle, 33cl) Cloudy, orange-amber colour with a huge and slightly tanned foamy head. Mildly toasted malty and wheaty aroma with notes of caramel, black tea, Belgian yeasty spice and a subtle fruity touch. Sour and mildly bitter flavour, light bodied with a sparkling carbonation. Sourish fruity taste with citrus, lemon, as well as notes of tannic black tea on a slightly cara-malty and wheaty base; sour and slightly bitter-tart finish, again with tannic tea notes. I would not order a second one. 30.VI.14
