3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 10C. Pale clear amber with an inch of fluffy white head that never disappears. Aroma of peaches, mild funk, orange peel, pepper and other spices (could be chile, wouldn’t have guessed). Moody rather than vibrant. Medium bodied, slightly slippery. Taste is much like the aroma with lots of mellow peach, some citrus, a little funky mystery (w a very slight sourness), quite spicy including more clearly chile at the end. Where it’s dry with little bitterness. Is that the chocolate there as a richness, smoothness and slight nuttiness? No idea. Just became more intriguing with each sip.

750ml bottle from Great Grog at the local Dad’s tasting. Pours surprisingly pale, thin white head. Green vegetables, light cocoa, pineapple on the aromas. Taste is light sweet, light spice, light sour too. Thin body, pleasant, if expensive.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. Hazy, opaque, orangey, deep golden colour with average, frothy, rapidly diminishing, off-white head. Slightly funky, yeasty aroma, citrusy hoppy overtones, a peculiar fruity, chili induced, orange note, a rather herbal touch that could stem from the cocoa. Taste is initially minimally tart, fruity, notes of orange, lemon, mandarine, some funky yeast, later some cocoa comes in, accompanied by a frowsty touch not clearly assignable to the cocoa or the otherwise cautious chili pepper; overall furry finish. Nice and well balanced chili support adds in positive way to a tangy mouthfeel predominantly based on fruit tartness; can’t see any benefit from the cocoa on the other hand.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Lekker bier. Meegebracht uit de chocolaterie. De chocoladesmaak ontgaat me helaas. Het fruitige aroma neem ik wel waar. De neus in het glas en je ruikt duidelijk limoen

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
helder gouden met schuimig witte kraag. Aroma komt iets saison achtig binnen. verder pilsmouten, nat gras. hmm niet zo bijzonder. Smaken zijn redelijk zoet, matig bitter, licht scherp, maar gewoon weer erg veel saison smaken en dan wel zonder chocolade of chili what so ever .... verder zuur... funky...barnyard... grassig...waterig...yikes... not that great...
