Non male questa tedesca in versione orange. Colore dorato leggermente torbo, mentre al naso è davvero un bel floreale davvero invitante. In bocca è molto dissetante, e decisamente maltosa.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The epitome of greatness this one produces up in the glass; all three inches of rocky Belgian foam, held aloft for the length to daub a thick and messy lace. The body a well conditioned sunny yellow; quite bright before the yeast goes on in. Fresh, ripe pale citrus dominates the nose over inklings of caramelised stonefruit, peach and apricot - just screams out ’quaff me’ like something out of a Charles Dodgson novel. Creamy in texture, soft and supple upon the palate with a quenching fruity and dry finish. Light malt base, grainy and cereal-like holds in well amongst the fruity esters. Pineapple, and peach and apricot again with a lime and lemon zest back end and moderately bitter fruit peel swallow. Yeast adds depth to this, I don’t know how they went about it but this is boldly fruity like it was warm fermented. A mouthful of wonderfully balanced flavours and an aroma that speaks volumes. I wouldn’t batter an eyelid to drinking this one all afternoon, and then the next and the next..... A delicious brew that is more Belgian pale than Kölsch as the label suggests. Lovely!!!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazed golden yellow colored body with an inch thick, creamy and foamy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is slightly grassy and fruity with a lightly sweetened pale malt backing. Flavor is similar. Lightly sweetened, somewhat grainy pale malts with an even grassy bitterness throughout. Some floral fruits before this finishes dry and moderately bitter. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a light body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent beer. On the drier and more bitter side for the style, but it’s still well balanced and pretty easy drinking. Not bad.

Big offwhite lasting head. Slightly hazy yellow body. Light floral mealy aroma with tobacco and grain notes. Dry-sweet orangey dusty taste with spicy herbal soft metal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish mealy orangey grainy aftertaste with dusty soft metal and earth notes. Lovely. Drinkable and subtle. (0.25l draft at ’t Arendsnest, Amsterdam.)

Fraiche et sèche !
Belle blonde voilée au col cremeux persistant. Les fruits sont de sortie, citron, mirabelles. L’attaque est fraiche et un poil piquante mais le final sur l’amertume est plutot sec et tiens longtemps en bouche.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 33cl bottle, bought in KL. Pours a nice hazy orange color body with a nice off-white head. Aroma of light malts and hops. Flavors are supprisingly nicly ballanced, great taste of hops and malts, hints of honey and hay. Nice soft bitterness, with long last taste in mouth. This might be the best De Prael brew i’ve had. Really enjoyed, and would buy more.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle @ GreenWoods Keizersgracht, Amsterdam. Rated on 23.2.2013.
Pours a hazy orange amber colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of citrus, grains and strong grassy notes. Flavour of strong grassy hops, yeast, grains, dried fruits and citrusy tanginess. Medium bodied, high carbonation and a bitter fruity finish. A rather fresh bottle it seems and truly a good beer.
