Looks a light rusty amber with a nice but dissipating head. Rich sweet aroma’s of banana and bittersweet orange with hints of candy caramel and sweet liquorice. Very nice dark beer with a rich carbonisation, really nice in the mouth.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an opaque red brown. Smells of malt, spices, only slightly fruity. Tastes very spicy, the coriander is quite overwhelming, the oranges seem to be an afterthought. It’s dry and slightly sour, and leaves a spicy, dry aftertaste. Not too bad for an 8.5%, but I expected better.

It pours clear and sparkling with a dark amber to brown colour. The head is off-white, large and foamy and lasts long. It smells of fruits, especially apple; the aroma consists of moderate malts, apple, raisin, some licorice, herbs and caramel. The taste balances delicately between medium sweet and light bitter. It has a creamy body, long aftertaste, and a slight dry finish. Probably not to everyone’s taste, but recommendable.

This one poured a nice dark Amber colour with a light tan coloured, creamy head. Scents include wieners/yeast, ripe fruit and spice. First swig was quite nice with citrus hop flavour, candy and a little yeast. A little bitter on the finish with fruit flavours lingering.
