4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl Bottle at ’t Arendsnest. This beer is now brewed at De Molen, no longer at De Prael. And it shows, this is one hoppy beast! Hazy amber orange colour, dense fluffy off white head. Aroma is superb, almost perfect with lots of very nice grapefruit aroma’s, resin, sweet and spicy, bit yeasty. Flavour is sweet, grapefruit, caramel, citrus, resiny bitter finish. Medium to fullbodied. Just gorgeous! Will be available on tap soon, as I’ve been told.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap, Arendsnest. Wall-menu stated 6%, Cambrinus website 5.5%. I don’t know exactly where this brew was produced, but it’s from De Snaterende Arend and that’s most important. Clear amber color, big off-white head. Aroma of fruit like grapefruit, american hops, some pine. Very nice. Bitter and fruity taste. Bitter palate. One way or another: quite nice!
