3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beautiful opaque luminescent orange hay colour, nice frothy head with big bubbles.
Smell is a mixture of puke, wood and rotten fruit, with some subtle smoke. Some citrus sourness there too.
Taste is very watery with a touch of citric bitterness and smoke. Meaty. Light touch of leather and some fruitiness.

0,33l fles gedeeld met Nikos, biertje met een koperkleur geur en smaak redelijk vlak iets zurig, de rook erg op de achtergrond. Viel wat tegen zeker in vergelijking met de grätzer.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Belmont Station, Portland. Pours a medium golden orange, decent amount of white head which dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma interesting; definite smoke character but also a some biscuit and caramel notes, like an over-malty IPA. Body decently lively, finish smoky but in an artificial way. Essentially disappointing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the BierKoning. Hazy yellow-whitish pour with thin white head. Aroma of lemon rind, lemon tea, smokey, iced tea notes, something distinctly tree-like, don’t know if it’s really the willow bark but it is certainly pleasant. Taste is mild, light smokiness, lemony, zesty, quite refreshing, light floury body with mild bitter vegetal finish. Palate is light, a tad watery, low carbonation. Super easy drinking, I’d have this on cask on my patio all summer long.

Bottle @ De Molen. Aroma is silty herbs, some malty notes. Flavour is zesty bitter grains with herbs and spices. Lot of things going on. Not really my thing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Poured pale yellow with a thin forming head. Aroma of smoke, ash, toasted grains, and brûlée-ed sugars. Smoke flavors similar to the aroma with more of a malty sweetness and even some bitterness. Foamy mouthfeel, carbonation was just right. Sweet and campfire smoke in the finish.
