   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
Bloekie (210) - BELGIUM - JAN 29, 2011
Citrusy sweet aroma with a hint of alcohol. Pretty bland in the nose overall. Golden clear colour with a white foamy small, though lasting, head. Taste is very refreshing, with a mouthfull of malts and a background of hops. Gives a rather sweet aftertaste with a little tang. Screams for another drink, and then another. A little more bitterness would have been welcome to give it a nice kick. The palate isn’t all that refined. There is the initial taste, the aftertaste that lingers and not much in between. Overall a pretty nice biological beer. I’m curious to try the vegetarian Seitan-product that is used to brew this, since I can’t really assess how this plays out in this brew. Not as good as the regular Jessenhofke, and not as "festive" as the label suggests.

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2011
(bottle, 33cl) Slightly hazy, pale golden coloured effervescent hue with a blond and tall foamy head. Slightly yeasty, citrus-fruity and flowery aroma with spicy notes of coriander and white pepper. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a lively carbonation. Pale malty, spicy and yeasty taste with lighter fruity notes; sweet-bitter, spicy and slightly alcoholic finish. Not that rounded. 02.I.11

FatPhil (9646) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 10, 2011
330ml bottle (Bacchus Cornelius, Bruges)
6 Coconut slice aroma, or macaroon
3 Deep orange, pale brown, not quite sure. healthy head
6+ Some perfumey retronasals at first, then a little vegetal - pulses. Very ’eco’ grain taste.
4- Full mouthfeel, but lively carbonation. Finish startes with some darkly roasted husky grains, then is full of tingly bitter noble hops, which is odd as no hops are listed in the ingredients.
13 Inventive brewing from Jessenhofke, and pulled off well, but not quite what I was looking for in a beer at the time. The Eco is obvious, but it’s not grungy.
