kajser27 (859) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 3, 2015
Bit hazy, pale amber colored, medium white head. Aroma is of caramel malt, citrus, tropical fruit and bit floral hops. Taste is medium- sweet caramalt, moderate citrus, lemony, fruity and less floral hops, medium- bitterness, semi-dry. Medium- bodied, soft carbonation. Very good but I wasn’t blown away like with other de Molen beauties.

Hermod (5148) - Vantaa, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2015
33cl bottle @home. Pours murky amber with a thick white head. Murky, because of the yeast I poured in. House aroma, yeasty, tropical fruity, oranges, citrus. Flavor has some spicy notes, tropical fruits, some caramel. Light bodied, but refreshing. Surprisingly well preserved considering this was bottled in March 2015.

Zupastan (160) - Kortrijk, BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2015
33 cl bottle @ home. Orange beer with a medium, white head, quite adhesive. Aroma is citrus, passion fruit, pineapple, grapefruit, bit grassy. Medium carbonation. Taste is citrus, quite bitter, grassy, grapefruit, bit watery (as can be expected with this low abv). Aftertaste is bitter-sweet.

mutz (802) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2015
Ziet er heel goed uit, troebel donkergoud met een dikke plakkraag die heel lang blijft. Ruikt naar mout en grapefruit, lekker. Smaak is moutig/ granig en behoorlijk citrusbitter. Helaas blijft de body wat achter.

willisread (1574) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 2, 2015
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a light copper with a huge soapy white head that lasts throughout. Big citra hop aromas: ruby red grapefruit, orange zest and iyokan with some green pineapple and papaya. Crackery malt character with a nice refreshing crisp zing on the palate. Bitter but with nice fruit character to balance out. Body seemed a tad thin at the end however. Still really enjoyable.

(Bottle, Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 30 Aug 2015) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with citrus, grapefruit, orange peel and some crisp-bread. Malty, hoppy taste with notes of crisp-bread, citrus, grapefruit, orange peel and a dry finish with a balanced citric bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. Fresh and tasty, with a good hop character. Nice one.
