3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. A hazy orange-amber beer with a huge light orange head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of yeast, citrus, and spices among them cloves. The flavor is powerful with notes of peaches, dusty hops, yeast, spices, and alcohol, on a medium sweet back ground. The most dominant spice is cloves. The finish is dry and spicy with a slight fruity touch before the alcohol starts a slight burn in the throat.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Pours out in a beautiful hazy reddish amber colour topped with a rich sticky white foam. The funky Dupont yeast is certainly there along with mild herbs, tart nectarines, blood-oranges and minerals. Full, fruity and yeasty flavour of nectarines, herbs, leaves mild anise, toasted maruenge and alcohol. Full full yet quite lively mouth feel with curtains of that that beautiful yeast character. Medium-dry, yeasty and warming finish of wet wood, mild spices and dried oranges. Stunningly charming!

Bottle. Weak fruity aroma. Cloudy dark orange colour. Stable white head. Quite peppery flavour, slightly rough. The hoppiness is also rough. Has a little malt in the middle flavour, but ends with the rough hops again. Also has a sharp alcoholic note.
