Pours an orange/amber. Long lasting head....very attractive lacing. Aromas are very green. Hoopy, piney, weeds...some medicinal aromas with a bit of honey. Flavours are mostly floral and hoppy...not over powering though. Well balanced. Good.

Pours deep amber with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows caramel, pine and resinous hops. Also some nutty notes.
Similar flavours; caramel, sweet bready malt and nutty notes with heavy resinous pine following. Finishes with a bold bitterness.
Could use more carbonation.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled (thanks Papsoe!). Slightly hazy amber colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is burnt rubber, some slight cloakwater and mild herbal notes. Flavour is rather similar, has some slight catpee in the background. Hmm, not good. I will rather enjoy the aroma of a rotten eggfart than this beer. Atleast rotten eggfarts are funny. This beer is not.

Aroma is tropical fruit, grapefruit and a hint of green tea. The flavor is tropical fruit, orange/citrus, grapefruit, an undercurrent of malts and a mild resiny hop finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Smelling funky, cheese, fermented strawberries, nettles and resin.
Appearance: A clouded amber brew, an off-white head with little lacing but good curtains.
Taste: Starting sweet toffee, cheese, grape-fruit, resin, oil and rubber.
Palate: Light carbonation, small bubbles, oily, a dry finish.
Overall: A complex, overpowering and intrusive hop character.
Note: Bottle 330 ml, at De Klomp tasting. Reviewed 2012-02-11.

Can tell this beer is a touch old because it has lost almost all bitterness. Nice looking orange beer with a frothy head. Aroma is faint citrus hops with caramel malt flavours. Taste is sweet malt with grapefruit flavours minus the bitterness. A touch of lemon zest is present. A bit of resin and pine hop flavours. A fairly complex beer. Finish is sweet. Not bad, but would have loved to have tried this fresh and bitter (I’m guessing it was bitter at one point). Palate is super creamy and delicious.
