4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange to gold color, with a thick creamy head. Aroma is very fruity; apricots, banana and citrus are present. Also spice and hops. Very smooth mouthfeel, with a tickling carbonation. Spicey, fruity taste, with a medium body and slick texture. Alcohol is very well hidden.
Personal opinion: One of the best, most surprising beers until now.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes: Poured a hazy straw color with virtually no head. Crisp apple aroma with mild yeast underneath. Palate is slightly fizzy, but with some depth to it. Mild apple flavor at the tip of the tongue giving way to an earthy note. The crispness of the apple lingers nicely. Reminds me a bit of Unibrouwe’s Ephemere, but it’s less fizzy and the apple is less aggressive. The earthy note also separates it.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from the French Cellar. Aroma is of bananas and orange. The beer pours a cloudy golden color with a thick white head and plenty of carbonation with tiny bubbles. The taste is astringent with some heat from the alcohol as well. Mouthfeel is creamy. The style is not my favorite thus the low overall rating.
