JorisPPattyn (8035) - Antwerpen, - NOV 5, 2012
Textbook white dense lace over clear, if cold-hazed orange beer. Slight sweetish spicyness, and dry hops mixed with speculoos spices. Dried hops, giving both bitterness and aroma. Spices again, but more obscure flavourwise. Very dry finish and long dry-hopping aftertaste, bit herbal. Misses body. Good hoppy beer, but not a spectacular one.

golden color with a off-white head. nose: malts, hops, bit of a metallic touch in the back. taste: malts and a lot of hops. great MtF, very well balanced. almost smooth and creamy, but a long gentle bitterness, dry taste. was a bit afraid that the aging would have had an impact, but it feels less than i was worried for. All in the back, got some malt sweetness. but this is still a very fine, fresh hoppy brew. on the otherhand, carbonation feels a bit subdued. good beer.

Bue en bouteille de 75cl (merci Nino @sherwood pub). Superbe houblonnage sur cette bière ! Complexe à souhait sans être trop amère. Un régal !

A bit fruity with some notes of orange. Sweet caramel. Crystal malts. Bready and veeery earthy yeasts. Strong belgian character. Very flowery hops. Citric and herby T: Slightly sweet upfront. Intense hoppy bitterness. Strong notes of pale malts, crystal malts. Notes of orange. Very bready and earthy yeasts. In overall, a dry taste with a considerable bitter sting M: Light watery taste.

Bue en bouteille de 75cl cadeau de Nino du @SherwoodPub, couleur blonde grosse mousse, effervescence importante, bière assez rafraichissante avec une présence puissante du houblon aromatique, une attaque sur le fruit jaune, le pamplemousse et une longue fin de bouche sur le réglisse excellente !

Dit was niet echt mijn smaak. Dan was de hop harvest van 2011 een pak beter.

rosenbergh (7423) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2014
750 ml bottle. BBE 2017. William K, Helsinki, Finland. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Mild sweetness, mild yeast, some old hops and malt in the aroma. The flavour is super sweet malt, deep hops, mild bitterness and some mild sourness. This tastes unfresh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2012 Edition. Swietne chmielne i zywiczne w zapachu. Niesamowicie pacznace morela. W smaku wytrawne hwiaty bzu jakby. Kolor pomaranczowo jasny, silnie metny z kremowa i trwala nieustepujaca piana. Piwo krzepkie tresciwe choc ma malo alkoholu doskonale syci. W sam raz do posilku. Niezapomniane w smaku chmiele belgijskie oczywiscie. Super smacznie bylo, polecam kazdemu
