3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep, rich cheddar orange with a nice off-white head. Aroma is orange, peach, sweet yeast, and a touch of raisin/plumb. Flavor is a doughy sweet raisin with a finish of peach and orange peel. Zesty, tingly mouthfeel that deceives the drinker into thinking the beer is thinner bodied than it is really. Finish seems to resonate with apple juice aged in the dank, musty cellar located under the brewery. A nice beer.

Bottle from a pub in Brugge (forgot to write down the name but think it was Bierboom) consumed 01.10.10. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Nicely soft in the motuh. This is fruity and sweet to start with and a bit of coriander? probably wrong with that last shout but that’s what I got. Bit dry towards the end. A6 A3 T7 P3 Ov13 3.2

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange pour, off-white head. Sweet fruits, bread, caramel sweetness, light floral hops, and yeast. Pretty light and easy on the palate, but still nice belgium flavor. Good choice if you don’t want a heavy belgium style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours out orange-amber coloured. A medium sized head, colapses way to quick for sure. Good spiced smell. A bit earhy, some sourness that comes up, malts, caramel. NIce smell, only something metallic that disturbes it a bit. Decent taste for sure, the nice smell gets back at the taste. Some nice balance between bitter and sweet, with some more sweetness. Not to much fruits inside, good spiced. A bit of a surprise for me.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice one! The beer is very dark brown orange hazy with a yellow hinge. The middle/sized head is very compact and creates a perfect haze after settling. The aroma of raisins and orange zest works very well together. Very full, good palate. Soft and silky. The taste is not as strong as the aroma suggests. The finish is perfect - just enough taste very similar to that of the aroma, always tempting you to get that next sip. Great!
