gold pour with a thin quick white head.
aroma is pretty fruity and sweet. over ripe peachiness, hint of alc.
Flavour is pretty sweet, a lot of candy sugar going on, overpowers the fruitiness. Hints of grain in the maltiness. Slightly astringent tone in the finish.

Bottle- Transparent deep orange, with a frothy bleached white cap. Nice lace and retention here. Nose of candi sugar and alcohol, orange rind, some peach. Tastes sweet, very sweet. Of orange zest with booze. Fruity malts become bready towards the finish. Full bodied, heavy, syrupy. Way too sweet, and more in line with malt likka.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Deep golden, clear, with a rapidly collapsing white head that is gone within 2 minutes. Aroma of corn syrup, bubblegum, and vague spices. Palate is syrupy sweet, with flavours of golden syrup, bubblegum, banana, and vague spices. Heavy and syrupy. Something just isn’t quite right here for me. Too sweet and unbalanced, lacking complexity. This could easily be a cheap euro strong lager.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
341ml Bottle: Light orange, no head at all. Aroma strong in pear and peach, sweet and spicy. Clings to the tongue, tons of body. Cloyingly sweet with pears, apples, banana, bubble gum, cloves. It’s not bad for a strange Belgian wheat candy beer but I wouldn’t want more than one.
