3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, deep golden - amber color with a medium, foamy and lacy head. Dry and acidic, quite hoppy but a bit stuffy aroma. Toffeeish-caramely flavor with lots of acidity and some oaky-vineous character. The acidity is dominating, though - together with some alcohol. Sticky-caramely aftertaste. Medium-bodied, acidic palate with slightly foamy carbonation. This is one of the brews, where nothing has gone completely right. I wonder if anyone buys this for a second time...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Paters Vaetje, Antwerp. Found this rating on a scrap of paper at the bottom of my bag after I ran out of space in my book. Poor planning. Very attractive reddish copper colour with thinish white head. Not a bad caramel/citric tangerine thing, but not a fan of this.

Bottle. Clear copper with small head. Sweet, caramel, little sour, little metal, has lots in common with the "yperman" I had just beforehand... Average at best.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Corriander in the nose, clear orange gold color, white spongy head. Soft fruity malt - orange and apricot notes. Like spice end, pepper and some hop. Good blend of sweet and spice, really. Quick and clean body. Straight forward beer. A little thinner than I wanted, though.
