3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Very dark Orange with a small sized head of roughly one finger.
However it has a good retention and leaves some lacing.
Aroma": Hoppy with flowers, tropical fruits, grapefruit,
Taste: Starts fruity l(grapefruit, orange and tropical fruits) and not so bitter with some sweet caramel however the hopyness increases in the aftertaste with a nice more intense biterness.
Medium body, low carbonation.
Great complex aroma, but after the greatness it just doesn’t fully deliver the expectations in the taste department. Still a good brew.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 33cl. Orange/red with absolute no head at all. Hmmm. Nice flavours of hops. Taste of fresh hops. Very little carbonisation, makes it dificult to appreciate, despite that it promises a lot. Taste is good though, but i miss this extra which would make it a great beer. Too bad.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a tulip glass. ABV 7.5%
Very dark orange colour on the body, almost light amber. One finger of off-white head, with good retention and light lacing on the glass.
Aroma is great, sweet with flowers, tropical fruits, melon, grapefruit, orange peel.
Great taste too, not too bitter at first but the bitterness gets more intense on the aftertaste. Well balanced though with malts and flavours of grapefruit, orange and tropical fruits, light caramel, floral notes as well.
Medium body, low carbonation.
Really great beer, very pleasantly surprised by this one. Complex, especially on the aroma and highly drinkable.

Mooie karamelkleur met een aardige kraag. Ruikt biiter, fruitig, hop, bloemig en honing. Smaakt lekker bitter, hop, fruitig en iets zoetig. Lekker.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big beige head. Clear deep dark red body with light carbonation.
Sourish spicy fruity aroma is kind of subdued. Dry, and faintly
acidic, pine needle and wood taste with fruity notes.
Mid-bodied. Fizzy mouthfeel. Dry resiny pine needle aftertaste
with tropical fruit and mineral notes. I didn’t like it at
first, and there’s something sourish and stale hovering in the
background, but parts of the beer are also quite good. (0.33l
bottle, from de Bierkoning, Amsterdam.)

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy amber. Big off-white head. Fruity hop aroma. Taste is a bit weird, fruity hops, but also hay, grass and something very distasteful...
