Mooi oranje licht troebel bier met fijne witte schuimkraag. Aroma van passievrucht, mango, citrus. Lekker vol en redelijk romig in de mond. Smaken van appelsien, exotisch fruit. Afdronk is misschien beetje plat maar voor de rest prima bier.

20/VI/16 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: 3/VI/17 (2016-680) Thanks to Erwin for sharing the bottle!

Clear orange beer, big aery regular off-white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very malty, cardboard, orange peel. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: bitter start, some orange peel, grapefruit, some citrus, bitter hops. Aftertaste: malty, fruity, some citrus, wine gums, sweet, more orange peel. I guess this is already been shelf aged for a year? That probably didn’t help much...
