3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at In de Wildeman. Really hazy gold pour, creamy white head. Light aroma, fruity, yeasty notes, light clove, grain husks, fresh bread. Taste is grainy, spicy, light fruity alcohol notes. Palate is light-medium bodied with medium carbonation. A bit rough around the edges for what should be an easy drinker, but not bad.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours down a golden, slightly orange coloured beer with an one finger head wich disappears quite fast. Aroma is cheesy, grassy/hay and sweet. Sweetness of tropical fruits like pineapple and mango. Besides that it tastes citrussy and yeasty. There’s some yeast sendiment left in the bottle. Aftertaste is quite long and the carbonation is good. Overall nice beer. Perfect when you want a special beer, but not too strong and too complex. Easely drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is a good looking Pale Ale that pours golden with a measured head.
There’s a subtle fragrance of hard green apple, almost indistinguishable, but still there, like a Dutch Ninja, nonetheless. At first sip you’re immediately greeted by a bitter pinch of the tastebuds. This is joined by a wave of alcohol and malt--reminding you that it’s stronger than it appears--with a lingering bitter aftertaste.
Overall, it’s a decent pale ale, but nothing ground-breaking. I feel it could use a bit more hops to mellow out the malt and alcohol, but it’s still a suitable option for a late afternoon by the canal.
