2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bio and colour promise a lot, but the product itself is somehow dissappointing - doesnt taste exactly beer, but kind of sandy or panaché or sima/mjod. Extra point for BIO. Not my favorite.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a light straw with an orange hue. decent head that fades to small film quickly. Smells great! Fruity, oranges and apples , like when you are out apple picking. Sweet with a hint of licorice.
Taste is dryer than the smell, a lot less of the fruit comes through but even more of the anise/licorice flavors are coming through. A bit thin of a mouth feel, I mean I know it is and should be a light bodied beer but I still expected more liveliness, a bit prickly on the palate where I wanted it to dance like a stripper (not a ballerina!) Overall it was a decent beer but did not do what I expected of the style. No real zip or crispness to it.
