30 cl. bottle @ home, gift from Rick. dark amber with an off-white head. Had a lot of yeast specks floating in it, after pouring. Not an attractive sight. Aroma is malty, yeasty and citrussy. Taste is fairly sweet but not overly so. Nice but otherwise unremarkable beer.

A somewhat cloudy, slightly orange, honey-colored beer with a somewhat brown-colored layer of foam. It has a sweet, fruity aroma in which the yeast is very present. it has a bitter taste in the beginning, but this moves into a nice, full, fruity aftertaste. Ietwat troebel, licht oranje, honingkleurig bier met een lichtbruine kraag. Het heeft een zoet, fruitig aroma waarin het gist erg aanwezig is. De smaak is in het begin heel even bitter, maar dit gaat al snel over in een lekkere volle zoete nasmaak.

Pours an orange beer with a good white head. Smells honey and caramel. Tastes licorice and malts. Lively carbo, medium body and a sticky texture.

Nix, väldigt anonym men ändå en hygglig smak. Bättre än mainstreamblasket i alla fall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

300 ml bottle, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6.5% I found this bottle sitting alone on the shelf at the beer shop, gathering dust, so I picked it up, to give it a home. Very deep orange-brown colour on the body, with huge chunks of yeast floating in it, in spite of my careful pour. One thin line of foam, with low retention. Weird aroma of old goat cheese, but not very offending, possibly because it is being overpowered by a honey aroma. Lots of yeast on the aroma as well. Taste is sweet sour, brings into mind some dark fruits. No trace of vanilla although it is mentioned on the ingredients. As a matter of fact, besides the fruity sourness, I can’t seem to notice anything else, maybe a very faint honey taste on the background. Medium body, light carbonation. One of those beers where you like but there is something off about and you can’t tell exactly what.
