3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Draft at Københavnske Øldage 2006] An unclear orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet and very yeasty, and the flavor is sweet yeasty with notes of spices and citrus on a malty background, the yeastyness lingers in the end. Nice - I’ve been looking forward to this ever since I saw the ratings from ZBF and I was not disappointed.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Refreshing, fruity aroma. Slightly cloudy golden colour, almost no head. Nicely aroma hopped. Mild flavour with OK bitterness, citric, turning acidic. Yeasty aftertaste. Somehow reminds me of a British ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from draught at Zythos Beer Festival 2006.
Clear golden colored, fluffy white head. Fresh hoppy and flowery aroma with a little yeast and grass. Dominating grassy flavor, dry and a bit biding with a sweet subnote. Dry bitter end. Good, but I have to say this beer is overrated imo, since it doesn’t have anything that you can’t find in many other Belgian ales.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2007 Re-rated bottle ’07. Pours without any head. The flavors are pretty much the same with some grapes.
Zythos ’06. Light yellow with a corney aroma. The head is durable enough to last most of the way. Taste is more corn but bland hops and fresh grains don’t do much to make this more than average at best.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours cloudy gold with a small white head. Nose is wheaty and citrusy with a nice yeast and light spice backbone. Taste seemed very wit-like to me. Wheat, yeast, citrus fruits (orange and lemon, mainly), flowers, spice, and light herbal notes. Body is light and refreshing. Mild carbonation feel to it. Finishes with some mild spice notes, wheat, yeast, flowers, candied orange and lemon zest. Perhaps a wit blended with a Belgian Ale?
