3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(draught) Very pale beer, very little head. Grainy and citrussy nose, at the same time. Citrussy, yes, but not expressly mandarine. Taste is another sample of the just-off-Saison, patisserie Mortalís touch. More citrussy than the other Mortalís beers, but again I cannot confirm "Mandarine". Itís just good. Medium bodied, fruity but not dry. Very good fruit beer. Itís the overall that makes its strenght. I wouldnít have guessed mandarine, but then, who cares if it tastes right?

draught at the Delirium Cafe in Brussels: Nice pale yellow brew, spare head leaving legs on the glass. Mustard seed and citrus nose. Mandarine taste - it was, no doubt, medium lasting but very intense - more sweet but still nice.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
TAP at Delirium Cafe: Some orange peel, mustard and citrus in the nose - interesting start. Hazy yellow color and a sticky lacy head. Orange Fanta taste coming through, a little sour end with a tinge of bitterto conclude. Thin and refreshing. Some good qualities, but overall it doesnít quite come together convincingly.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mandarin beer (the only one I know of) with thin, snow white, coarse head and very pale yellow blonde colour with somewhat greenish hue, clear but hazy after adding the deposit, little sparkling but some large protein flakes show up in the end. Aroma of Mandarine Napolťon, apple peel, peach, gooseberry, rubber and cough syrup. Delicate sweetness in the onset (vanilla?) with a delicate, lively and incentive perfume of mandarin liqueur rather than real mandarins, light and smooth maltiness, low carbo and thin mouthfeel, light sourishness, finish with very weak floral hoppiness, not bitter at all, dryish and medicinal and otherwise rather watery. Another strange Mortalís concoction, too bad they donít exist anymore - I, for one, miss this brewery.
