Bottle best before june 2005. Aroma is heavy fruity, mostly orange. Malts and hops in it. Quite fresh. Hazy (tiny particles), orange coloured brew with a nice lasting head. It’s taste is not as pleasant as it’s smell. perhaps slightly unbalanced. Some sugar in it (sweetness), very fruity (orange and some other citrus), bit hoppy and malty. Decent body.

750ml bottle from Carrefour Calais. Pours orange gold with thinning white head. I like the aroma on this. Malty with good orange rind, slightly sweet with some spiciness. Good in mouth with a little bit of candy sugar, Finish is hoppy but the dryness is balanced by the candy sugar. Good citrus flavours and spiciness.
