Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, honey, candy sugar, some spiciness, metallic notes. Flavour is awfully sweet, candy sugar. Not for me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 330 ml from a trade with Countbeer, thanks! Poured into a tulip glass. ABV 7%
Deep orange colour on the body, crystal clear, with a small white head. Thin, with good retention nevertheless. Medium lacing on the glass.
Aroma is moslty malts, candy sugar, some oxidation that gives it wine-like aromas.
Taste is quite sweet and malty, lots of metallic notes, more candy sugar, light sour white grapes.
medium thin body, okay carbonation.
Overall: This was okay, to tell the truth it’s three months past its BBD but I don’t think this played a sigificant role, three months it’s not -that- old! Still it was quite drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Clear orangey golden colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity aroma has a note of boiled apple, a touch of honey, cautious hints of yeast. Taste is moderately sweet malty, slightly unspecific fruity, some honey, some yeast. Not overly complex but nicely balanced and not too sweet. OK.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Medium ashy white head, disappears with regular speed and leaves a closed thin lacing on top of a hazy yellow orange colored beer.
Smell caramel, corny sweetness, lactic acid, barley malts, obvious yeast (fruit) tones, hidden sugars, light hidden wood vinous tones, porridge, autumnal ish herbs and orange.
Taste is a mix of barley malts, hay, corn, card board, light spicy, light bitter (but longer lasting), nasty herby bitterness, light dry, some bitter fruit tones, cornflakes, yeast, light fruity like orange and pear, floral herbs and light white chocolate tints.
Aftertaste is herbs and grass, light dry, bitter tones like grapefruit bitterness,
Medium carbo, soft light spicy/tingly mouthfeel, nothing more than a medium bodied beer and a creamy texture.
Unbalanced, strange... Not my cup of tea. Even got the feeling this beer nauseated me a bit. Light drainpour..
