3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 75cl bottle, Clear warm-golden color with orange shine and with a nice and creamy off white head. Dry-malty and yeasty nose with herbal accents and touches of orange-zest. Faint fizzy touch on the tongue with a medium body. Mouyhfeel is smooth, light sweet, and with a well integrated bitterness. Afthertaste is light malty with hints of white fruits, some cookies and a fine bitterness in the end. Nice but not great.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy golden color, medium white head. Aroma of grain, spicy (some ginger), floral, bit dusty. Taste is bit sweet, mostly spicy, heavy on the stomach. Not easy drinkable. It lacked the citrus/orange fruity taste.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweetish, fruity-hoppy aroma. Hazy, yellow coloured with a lasting white head. Decent appearance. Taste is sweet, floral/fruity hoppiness. Bit watery. I guess they try to give this beer body and character by adding a little too much sweetness. Still an enjoyable brew.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange gold. Huge, dense white head, good lace. Very yeasty, bready nose and orangezeste. Very dry, very citrussy (orange- or lemonzeste). Flowery bitterness and dryness go all to the end. Medium bodied, dryness makes it seem less (high attenuation). Aftertaste gives some yeast again, and just a touch of liquorice. This is one hell of a dry s... It isn't bad, considering all - had it combined (after tasting) with mussels - great.
