3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a hazy roan brown with a big off-white head that has fair retention and ample lacing. The aroma is mild with spices, white fruits and sweet malts. The flavor is delicate with multilayer spices, oranges and orange juice. The palate is somewhat thin and watery with soft carbonation. Finishes weak and short. Overall: Nice flavor, but this falls apart with poor palate and no finish. Once again this brewery underwhelms, I hope they pick up the slack and brew something bold.

On tap at the brewery. Pours copper with off-white head. Smells of citrus and cloves. Tastes similar to smell...loads of orange rind and some peppers and biting spices.

The label does not lie. This is a string brew. Spice notes of coriander prevail with a hearty malt backbone. Pours an orange brown. Aroma is minimal. Orange peeks through at the end pleasantly.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle via trade with doubleo, thanks Kyle. Poured a thick solid brownish/orange body under an average sized foamy white head that has some serious lasting power with a small slick of head that lasts the duration. Aroma is spicey and sweet with lots of orange juice, grains of paradise and a touch of corriander to add the spice, sadly though a bit of butter. The body is averagely carbonated with a medium mouthfeel and a rather quick dissipating aftertaste. Flavor is much like the aroma with orange and grains of paradise dominating along with lighter notes of corriander, a slight hint of mint leaves and wet bread. Solid effort.

orange color, a lot of foamy white head. Nose is all coriander and orange peel. Flavor dominated with Belgian spice notes. May have been a bad bottle, as it foamed up like crazy.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks alright; a transparent orange with very little carbonation and razor-thin white lacing. Smells of orange zest, caramel malt, coriander, and other spices. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Not bad.

Flaska från systembolaget. Orange vätska vitt skum. Kryddig doft med mycket apelsin. Detta anas även i smaken som känns ganska rå. ganska bitter men samtigt lite tunn.
