3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy, almost murky orange pour covered by a light white head. Highly effervescent beer all through and this will be a big factor in determining whether the beer is pleasant or not. It starts quite sweet with its strawy and grainy malts feeling quite honey-like, but quickly gets drier where long herbal whispers from the soft hops get carried on. Ultimately, the dryness becomes amplified by the huge carbonation and that same culprit makes it hard to just drink quickly without feeling to full constantly.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A Sim rate (RBESG tasting): Perfumy with a strong aroma of pear - like the succo-di-fruta we used to get in Italy. Looks just like one too, like a pulpy, cloudy juice. Alcohol is not well hidden, even though it’s not really that strong. Spicy, cinnamony with such a bitter/sour finish that really lets it down.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
50 cL bottle. Pours slight hazy orange with a quick disappearing head. Sweet to slight apple nose, minor spice note. Spiced flavour, slight sweet and with decent bitterness. Seems slight perfumed in the flavour, I assume that is the spices.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark yellow colored with slight brown hints. Little white head. Got me bottom of the bottle, and it can be seen from this strong hazyness... Yeast and orange in aroma, still rather mild one. medium bodied. Flavor is even more yeasty with again some lemony orange, perfume also present in aftertaste.
