3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a two year old bottle. This golden ale has a long lasting lacy belgian head (wish my wife did as well). There is quite a bit of sediment at the bottom of the glass. The aroma reveals sweetness, malty, doughy and clean. It is very balanced in terms of bitterness and sweetness. There is an overiding dry phenolic-almost solvent like finish. It is not a brewing so much as a yeast induced quality which might make this an isolated incident (this bottle). Overall it is a tasty brew but needs refinement.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium offwhite head. Hazy deep yellow body. Fruity resiny floral aroma with minty orangey notes. Dry orangey resiny minty taste with floral notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry orangey minty licorice aftertaste with resiny papery notes. Salty, resiny background. Nice, drinkable, full of flavour. Surprisingly hoppy. (0.33l bottle, at Brasserie Henri, Budapest.)

Orangefarben mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Hefiges Citrusaroma. Stark und leicht spritig im Antrunk. Getreidig, brotiger Geschmack, semidry, klingt aromatisch säuerlich herb aus. Geht in Ordnung.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits. Pours a murky burnt golden colour with modest-sized white head. Aroma has prominent lemon and other citrus with yeasty spiciness and some grains. Flavour has lemon zest, apple and apricot, wheat and a pronounced spicy note. On the acidic side. Some decent stuff going on but the acidity is a little harsh.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky burnt orange sort of pour with average head that leaves a nice lace. Citrus fruit dominates the nose, I’m thinking mandarin orange mostly with a bready note and some light spice. Not very interesting on the palate. That yeasty/bready note is more dominant than I might like with some light fruit and hints of spice.
