Pours orange. Can taste cloves with flavors of spices, can’t tell which ones. Not bad but still like Sofie better.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle pours a hazy mid copper with small off white head. Spicy nose, cloves, pepper and maybe a bit of cinnamon, some floral notes. Taste is, again, spicy with a bit of fruit. Slightly bitter finish but also a sour note and a sweet spiced apple warmth, interesting.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
15cl sample from bottle at the Leuven Innovation Beer Festival (25 V 2015). I don’t really get the high Ratebeer ratings. To me, this amber coloured brew is just a flat Caffè Americano beer. Lots of water, weak coffee. Did not really notice the "piney and resinous edges of the hops" - too bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Leuven Innovation Beerfestival, thanks for sharing! Crazy boring beer, would drown in averageness on your regular Belgian beer tasting. Yeast, citrus, maybe some orange peel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks for sharing! Sampled 650 ml. bottle @ Leuven Innovation Beer Festival. 2012 Version I believe. Pale lemon golden, little white head. Nose is wet socks, dull & metallic, sugar, herbs & very metallic; Taste is oily dull wet socks, thin, metallic, very boring malty, sugary,.. Dull thin metallic & sugar body,… I don’t get,… Tastes like a dull & very forgettable Belgian Ale for me, disappointing for me given my love for certain Goose Island beers.
