Bottle from jw77. Thanks! Deep golden color with a big head. This is after some of the bottle leaked out in the trade box, despite the fact that the crown was taped with electrical tape. When I loosened the cage, it still hissed and popped on removal--crazy. Smells of light spices and sweet malt. Not much in the aroma though. The mouthfeel is heavier than I expected, which I liked. Plenty of caramel malt flavor, some light fruity tastes, and a good portion of spices (light clove). I like the balance of the flavors with each other. Dry in the finish, with a lingering taste in your mouth. Tasty.

Hazy amber body. Off-white, dense, creamy head. Aroma of citrus, orange: quite well balanced and subtle. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet flavour. Highly carbonated. Warm mouthfeel, lots of alcohol. Balance is not too bad.

Bottle from Bierkoning. The cork just busted out of this one and made a loud pop. Murky orange body with seriously large rocky head. Nice nose of sweet, malts and oranges. Taste is also of malts and caramel and fruits. Quite nice. Texture is a bit prickly and some bitter and spices in the finish. Nice one.

375 ml corked bottle. A hazy medium amber beer, with an average sized, frothy, creamy, lacing, mostly lasting off-white head. The aroma is lightky to moderately malty, lightly to moderately hoppy, lightly to moderately yeasty. There are notes of toasted grain/bread, flowers, earth, spices. The flavour is moderately sweet, lightly to moderatẹy sour, lightly bitter. Medium body, slick texture, lively carbonation, long finish with medium bitterness, lightly alcoholic. Quite interesting, less complex than the blonde, but with a decent drinkability. Like the blonde, no explosion during the uncorking.
