2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
7/XI/14 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: n/a (2014-1296) Thanks to kerenmk for sharing the bottle!
Clear orange beer, aery irregular off-white head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: sweet, banana, bit sugary, some almonds, very oaky smell. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sourish start, banana peel, orange peel, lots of tannins, very astringent, mouth puckering. Aftertaste: dry, lemony, sourish, weird, oaky tannins. Don’t like.

Bottle shared at a tasting at tderoeck’s place. How come I never rated the sample tasted at my own living room?!?!? Hazy amber, Plastic, banana and a little vanilla aroma, plastic, sweet taste, with white wood. Full body, smooth texture, sweet finish.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, smallish creamy head, quite hazy light red to veey deep orange colour, funky fruity aroma with some vanila and caramel and a flowery hint, sweet fruity candy with some maltiness in the back, light sourness. Interesting but quite messy.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks Ariel. Cloudy deep golden. Aroma of wood, fruity esters and candies. Sweet candy-ish flavor, fruity, sugary, with some oak and a slightly drier and slightly alcoholic finish with a light tart hint. Medium-bodied. Sickly sweet, not my thing.
