Bottle. Sweet aroma, some coriander, citrus and lychee. Sweet palate, flat, with no carbonation on the tongue. The lychee, citrus and coriander spicyness comes through on the palate, aswell as some clove.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled at The London/Joet Gathering Chez Chris_O. A copper coloured beer with a hint of orange and no head. The aroma is full of elderflower and lychee. The taste is over-sweet and syrupy. Very very floral and a bit unpleasantly odd really.

The Kilburn Gathering. Soft fruit and Belgian yeast aroma - nice. Dryish, biscuity, light fruit. Pleasant.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is intensely fruity & floral. Flavour is similar, fruity and malty but also quite watery. This tastes much like ’Herbal Essences’ shampoo smells. A strange concoction.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(12oz bottle) Particulate-filled murky amber body topped by quickly dissipating medium off-white head. Aroma is mild sweet, cardemom, light orange peel, light herbal, pepper. Taste is medium sweet, cardemom, orange, honey, light herbal. No bitterness evident. Watery light body. Not bad, but then again, it has nothing that would make me inclined to drink it again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle, wow, nothing on my bottle indicates that Steenberge brewed it. Code of 16DC on back lable. rusty color with head that dies, leaving some stingy lace. Smells like a Brach’s Butterscotch candy. Exactly. Drinks with some hints of sour oragne apricot and butterscotch again. Ends up thin and somewhat astringent or metallic almost with some orange peel notes.. Very lazy bubbles flowing in it. Maybe a tradition not worth keeping. Still, not at all the worst thing I’ve ever had. As it breathes that butterscotch dies off, leaving behind a lot of orange peel and a farily refreshing beer. Not a fan of the butterscotch.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Coppery orange, thin head. Very slight horse aroma, hard to describe as not at all like a lambic. Whiff of sage. Slight sour start, a bit astringent, fades into soft citric note, along with some chervil herb notes. Interesting, but not something I would reach for again.

ADRIAN!!!! Orange Coloring with White Head. Nice Spice and Citrus.. Saffron? Coriander More then Likely. A Bit Odd..but Then Traditionals Like that as a Calling Card. Enjoyable in Either Case.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a gold color with a foamy head. Oddly metalic and citrus nose with a bit of breadness as well. The taste is quite strange, not like the other gruits I’ve had. A little blueberry and corriander, I thought. Not bad, but certainly strange.
