3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Honey coloured pour with an off white head, lasts a fair while. Aromas of tropical fruits, citrus, baked apple, sweet spices, malts. Flavours of grapefruit, pineapple, herbs, light malts, bitter lemon. Very hoppy mouthfeel. Refreshing hop explosion (resisted the urge to say burst!) in the finish. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light body; very cloudy body, citrusy, lemony on the pallet. An unusual amount of lemon. Quite overpowering amount of lemon. A rather weak foamy blonde body. Not too impressed with this one. A bit faulty. Enjoyable but not stunning. Looks like De Molen should stick to their stouts and German styled bock beers.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2010 Colore ambrato chiaro , con riflessi rossi... forte il sentore di luppolo al palato di primo impatto e lievemente prolungato ...
All’olfatto lievi toni di luppolo e anche note maltate...
Prediligo molto di più le Ipa più luppolate ed estreme anche se non è da disprezzare questa birra molto leggera e beverina , data anche la sua leggera gradazione ...

Orange colored brew. Aroma is mildly hoppy, a bit faint. Flavor is also mildly hopped, some fruits, some sweetness, overall its a nice balanced and smooth brew. Very drinkable with a good aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
75cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Hazy orange colour, dense thick white head. Aroma of sweet fruits, oranges, piny hops, some citrus, sweet malts. Flavour is soft and sweet, oranges, fruits, some caramel, firm but smooth and lingering hoppy bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel, just a bit less dense than the Sladek Hopburst. This beer is a bit more easy-going. Medium to fullbodied. Very good.

75 cl Bottle #118 from Bierkoning. Bold orange body with proud head. Nice nose of hops and plenty of pine. Really smooth and round taste of oranges, hops, pine and plenty of bitter. Bursting with hops and really well done. Notes of coriander spice it up.
