4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
An orange beer with a fantastic light orange head. The aroma is fantastic: it is maltsweet with notes of alcohol, fruit, oranges, corriander, and cinnamon - a wonderful nose. The flavor too is fantastic - it starts with a nice maltsweetness containing notes of oranges, fruit, corriander, cinnamon, and alcohol. In the end, the alcohol sting your tongue, before it leveaves you with a sweetness that lingers on your tongue and lips. It has a very nice palate. This is a great beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Hazy golden with a nice frothy head. Fresher, finer - almost fruity - than the McChouffe. Almost perfumy notes which may sound cloying, but nothing could be further from the truth. Some citrusy notes to keep things dry. And again only a discreet bitternes, yet enough for balance. 311296
