3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden color with fading head. Funky citrus in the basement aroma. Intense flavor but well balanced. Very very bitter, nice in a snifter at the end of the night but a pint may kill you. Hops are so intense it cover the alcohol burn. A but of sweet syrupyness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle - 341ml. Cloudy amber body with yeasty chunks and a thin white foamy head. Nice, complex hoppy aroma with malty, orange, mango, and yeasty hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Its very well balanced, surprisingly smooth hoppy taste carries malty, citrusy, yeasty, and some subtle woody notes. Ends with a robust, warming bitter/fruity finish. Awesome!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
"starting to trend towards a 120-Minute type IIPA. Very sweet, though it fades and leaves behind a nice kick of bitter citrus and spice in the aroma and flavor. Thick bodied. Hides the abv reasonably well."

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 fl. oz. bottle @ home from De Molen. Body is cloudy, orange to amber, full with small particles, yeast doesn’t sit down on the bottom but slowly spinning up and down with the lightly fizzy carbonation boubles. Head is nearly flat, white, mostly diminishing, excellent lacing. Nose is fruity, Aroma is liquorish, honey, licorice, caramel, soap, yeast, light citric hops, grapes. Alcohol is quite hidden but still there. Taste medium sweetness, heavy hoppy bitterness, light fruity sourness. Full body, soapy texture, soft carbonation. Finish is first way too sweet with average duration, later quite hoppy bitter wich is mostly lasting. Very interesting look, not easy to drink, bit too sweet for me, very unique.
