Go easy with this one - it definately has an effect on balance! A wonderfully unique flavour with a lot happening. Was it a honey tint, or more orangey? I'm still not sure - But at least that gives me an excuse to sample it a few more times "just to make my mind up!" *hic*

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle marked 12/10. Pour is decadent: cloudy orange-brown with white head and lace that vanished. Smell is fruits, berries, pine, alcohol, yeast and wheat. Tastes similar to a starburst. I imagine it’s the sugars that have been fermenting for too long.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy burnt amber with frothy off-white head. Lots of trub and sediment. Aromas of malt, yeast, oak, and pine. Flavors of sweet malt and yeast. Slightly dry and pine sap finish. Medium mouthfeel. Very drinkable, though not complex. Akin to a heavy dunkel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 16C. Amber with less than a coat of beige head. Aroma of honey, bread, pine, herbs. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Sweet toasty and honeyed, apricots, some lemon, complex medicinal and woody notes. Mellow digestif sort of a beer that’s quite interesting but maybe a little well mannered.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fruity aroma immediately reminding me of certain Belgian yeast characteristics. Perfectly clear amber in appearance. Taste is malty bready sweetness. Herbal notes come in at the end. Not a bad beer at all, but nothing to write home about either.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Medium-light wood, forest, Light spices, malt sweetness.
Appearance: Body: Clear, amber. Head: almost none, tan.
Flavour: Medium-high woody, pine, medium herb (spruce?). Medium bitterness. Light malty. Dry, herb-like finish with lingering flavours.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body, Medium-high, creamy carbonation.
Overall: Very nice. Strong flavours and aromas, but not overpowering. Good malt support. I would bring the body up a bit, to balance the herb dryness.
330 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle [Thanks to Nico and Alex]. Murky golden to amber colour with small, creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, grey-ish white head. Fruity aroma has a touch of condensed, sirupy pineapple, a herbal hoppy touch, gummy bear character. Taste is initially moderately sweet, close to white gummy bears, notes of pineapple, a herbal and woody touch, spruce; dry, fresh woody finish. Unusual, but not my cup of tea.
