3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very hazy pale yellow. Looks like a Pilsner or a Landbier, but the nose dispels that with way more notes of hoppy grassiness in standards of those styles. Fair amount of body to the palate and low carbonation. Flavor is very nice and is most reminiscent of a U.S. harvest ale: grassy, herbal notes and healthy dose of bitterness. Some citrus flavors as well, but mainly bitterness and grass. This is really nice and a great single hop from a German brewer. If this was a little stronger and a little hoppier it would make a great IPA. One of the best hoppy German pale ales I’ve had.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Fizzy big bubbled head. Surprisingly slight basement mango aroma. Fizzy lagery mouth feel. Light and not impressive at all for the style...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange/yellow colour with a huge head, incredible, too much (with 10cl the Duvel glass was totally full!). Smell is citrus, yeast, some ripe fruits (peach, mango) but also some soapy notes. Taste is very fruity, basically only fruity, sweet, any bitterness, not really...sincerely, it’s not bad, it’s also nice in a hot summer day, but it seems too much a fruit juice with gas.
Sure not between the best APA I had.

Bottle. Hazy, amber yellow color, big foamy head. Fruity aromas, citrus, ginger, banana, great. Taste is light sweet, light bitter. Great fruity aftertaste, with a malt note which stays a bit longer. Fizzy carbonation and a thick mouth feel are making this beer round.

UPDATED: JUN 29, 2014 Sehr rundes Bier. Man soll es laut Ettikett nicht aus der Flasche trinken lassen. Wobei es für mich ein typisches Sommerbier ist.

The strong smell of fruit, citrus and some oranges. The foamy white medium large head has a normal duration, the body is orange. A light fruity taste, a little bit bitter. The body is very creamy, rather light with a lot of carbonation.
