3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Has about the ugliest looking design. But it is as a matter of fact a very nice IPA. Perhaps the least bitter IPA I’ve ever had but with a very fruity (citrus) aroma.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bouteille: Deep golden, hazy, huge rocky and " dirty" head with a minimal lace; moderate grapefruity nose with the typical " low-countries" orangey-yeasty touch, some grains detectable as well; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, soft but relatively light bodied; dry and tart bitter-orangey finish. O.K., but nothing special…

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle @ home from Melger’s, Haarlem. Hazy orange color, very large fizzy and creamy off-white head with average lacing. Aroma moderated fruity and floral, belgian yeast in the nose, flavor is first quite lagerish with a bit more hops, later comes more hops and fruits, herbs and leaves. Taste medium sweetness, medium bitterness, hint of umami. Light to medium body, thin texture, lively carbonation, average bitter-sweet finish at the beginning then more bitter aftertaste. Refreshing, first tastes rather like an average good pilsener lager, later more hoppy and IPAish. Great one.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle. Slighly cloudy, golden colour with huge, foamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity, hoppy aroma, hints of apple and red berries, a floral yeasty touch, some sweetness can be anticipated. Taste is dry hoppy, chalky, sweet, slightly sugary malty basis, effervescent carbonation. Limited edition!? - No matter, I don’t need it a second time.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fresh hops, citric and also sharp. Thin body but summery. Not how I would describe perfect, but strangely appealing. Foxy? Taste is more normal, medium bitter. Okay carbonation, nice mouth feel. Decent brew. (33cl bottle from SpeciaalBierPakket)

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from biernavigatie.nl. Brewed by 5 ladies, using Herllertau Mandarina and Hellertau Perle for a total of 50 EBUs. Pours dark gold with huge off-white head. Citrusy aroma but almost nothing there. Taste, to my surprise, is sour - with some grass and bitterness. Light body, overly high carbonation, a bit grating. I’m going to assume my bottle was infected.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at home. Hazy golden pour, huge off-white head. Aroma is very spicy, quite swampy, a hint of citrus and meaty. Flavor is bitter, messy, somewhat floral and quite swampy. Overly carbonated. Not my thing.
