JorisPPattyn (7806) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2013
Small rim, veiled pale amber beer. Dry hops, garden herbs. Dry, hoppy, bitter-herbal. Feels very carbonated, rather slick, medium bodied. Nice, but De Ranke can do much better. Nose is all but absent.

Countbeer (4311) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium sized vast and slowly changing off white foamy head on top of a hazy orange colored beer. Aromas of apricot, yeast, hay, light pepperish, floral, marmalade, paper, grains and herbs. Flavours of yeast, hay, malts, some hops, herbs, floral, bitter, some apricot marmalade, some smooth spices, paper and grapefruit. Aftertaste is a light mix of bitters, floral, apricot and peach, hay and yeast. Medium carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied and a creamy texture. Decent for sure but expected a bit more...

IluvatarMilan (238) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2013
Opaque hazy orange beer with a rarther bland flowery and spicy aroma. Taste is very dry fruity, lots of apricot, oranges. Translates nicely into the aftertaste as well. Quite a bit of yeastiness.

Taste: malts, fruitssome citrus, nice bitter hops, bit sweetness. Very good dry and bitter finish. Refreshing in this wether.

poech73 (149) - Nivelles, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2013
Bouteille de 33 cl. Robe orange claire livrant un col mince et léger. En bouche, elle libère des saveurs de céréales grillées mêlées à des senteurs aromatiques et fleuries du Mozaïc qui laisse un amertume subtile (à la fois présente sans être envahissante) en finale. Ouverte, elle s’adoucit grâce aux céréales offrant un douce rondeur en finale. ------- Ma 1re dégustation était différente : la bière à jailli lorsque j’ai ouvert la bouteille. J’ai goûté un bière à l’amertume plus prépondérante et au goût aigrelet plus prononcé. J’ai moins senti les céréales grillée et la rondeur en final, presque inexistante. Je pense que cette bière-là avait "Geuzé". Ça m’est arrivé une fois avec une Noire de Dottignies. Et ce n’est pas mal non plus! On y revient...

21/VI/13 - 33cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: 6/IV/18 (2013-572)

Clear deep orange beer, big creamy yellowish head, very stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: very fruity, peaches, some pineapple, bit malty, toast. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: some citrus first, then pretty fruity, pineapple, herbal, grassy bitter hops, soft sweet malty base. Aftertaste: citrus, bit spicy, bitter hops, some toast, bitter dry ending. Complex yet very easy drinkable! Love it!

laiti (5511) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2013
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 06.04.2018
Aroma has floral notes, some biscuits, hints of caramel and soapy citrus. Flavour has strong floral notes, some spices, herbs and orange. Grassy hops in the finish. Foamy palate is too high on CO2. Spicy and weird.

lusikka (5993) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours an unclear orange colour with a white thick head. Aroma of wet earth, herbs and cream crackers. Flavour of sweet caramel malts, earthy notes, cream crackers, metallic notes, yeast and weak herbs. Light bodied, high carbonation and a dry, malty, off-flavour finish. Messy and yeasty. Not good.

tiong (3647) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2013
330ml bottle from beer-city.be

Porus dark orange with a large white head. Aroma of biscuity malts, some crisp hops, hints of spices and yeast. Taste is crisp, malty and fruity with hints of spices and yeast. Finish is smooth, yeasty and slightly fruity. Okay, a bit musty and unbalanced, but fruity saison/Belgian IPA hybrid.
