2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2007 bottle, 750 ml with caged cork. Ready with a big Duvel glass in case of a gusher… but nope, not a problem this time. Pours reddish brown, fizzy like a soda, thin head. Smell is, um, like a rubber inner tube in the glass! Definitely, this got corked like a red wine. But a light herbal quality in the bottle. Wha hoppen? Okay, I can get past the nose and sip some of the beer, which is not as herbal as, well, other traditional ales, in fact, milder than some other old beers I’ve kept too long. So beyond the spoiled nose I find a slightly fruity ale, not too spicy and herbal, with a slight bit of tart marred by too much horseblanket. It’s a sign. I need to clear out my cellar!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown, with a quite specific sour smell. Little head, that quickly diminishes. Smell is mostly yeasty, not quite fresh-herbal. Taste is very pleasant, not quite what you would expect from the smell. Strong, sweet an full of body. Something special. I defintely recomend this beer specimen.

Orangenes Bier. Sehr kräutrig, leicht frisch, fast wie ein Hustenbonbon. Am Gaumen süßlich, anständiger Malzkörper.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Malty sweet aroma, clear dark red, frothy decent beige head, leaves nice lacing. Medium sweet, bit metalic, lightly bitter aftertaste. Some herbal notes in taste and aftertaste. Medium bodied, _lively_ carbonation. Didn’t know what to expect of it "KOYT" told me exactly nothing. Quite nice.
