2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle at De Vlaamsche Reus, at Wageningen in the Netherlands (26 V 2016). Hazy brown yellow brew with frothy white to yellow collar. The nose has lots of dirt, yeasts and honey. The mouth is full of honey and malts. Fresh, yet a bit dirty, dusty even. Not bad, yet not tastefull either.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled from Veluwse Heidebrouwerij, BB 12 2015, large sample, served in a trappist glass. Pours a slight hazy golden to orange color, with a big loud sssshing cola kind of head. Seriously, its alive! I have never seen anything like this, except for soda pops, but never this long. In the end, only a small bit of lacing remains. Aroma of orange, spicy yeast, slight high fusels, spices. Bit sweet in taste, quite watery. Bit sticky palate. Finishes with a bit cola light. After swallowing, it seems the boiling of the co2 continues. Wow, Im definitely not going to finish this. Flavor is not that bad, except for watery light soda pop. But carbonation makes it impossible to drink. Drain pour after three sips and Im still burping half an hour later on.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl (well...) bottle a home, thanks Santa. 5.5% on label. Gusher. After cleaning up the kitchen there was still enough left. Murky golden or light amber color. Aroma’s of honey, yeast, sweet fruit. Bready malts and slightly herbal retronasal. Flavor is moderate sweet, malty. Body is light to medium. Flavor doesn’t last, not bitterness (or other flavors) in the finish. OK-ish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 330 ml, bought at the brewery. Poured into a tulip glass. ABV 5.5% on the label.
Pours a deep orange golden colour with lazy activity in the body and a big white head on top. Average retention, leaves a ring of foam around the glass and light lacing around it.
Aroma is grainy with band-aid and light medicinal alcohol that gets better as it warms up.
Taste is nice and yeasty, also a bit grainy. Sweet. The honey notable on the aftertaste.
Medium thin body, fizzy carbonation.
Overall quite nice.
