At Borefts Bier Festival 2010. Orange colored brew. Nice setup with the beer pumped through the hops. Aroma is very hopped, pine. Flavor has got very dry hops, fresh hops, grassy, pine. Expected the worst, but it was actually pretty ok.

From tap with randalizer. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is herbal, grapefruity, grassy and slight citrusy. Herbal, tea-like hoppy flavoured. Bitter and dry hoppy into a dry and bitter finish. A bit too simple hoppy and herbal.

On tap at Borefts Festival. Hazy deep golden with a small white head. The aroma is dust, hop pellets, pee and caramel. WTF? The flavour is hay, puke and pee. Holy crap that was awful!

On tap @ 2nd BBF with fresh hops added. The aroma is as expected quite hoppy and has citrus, grass and pine. Slightly hazy, orange coloured beer with an off-white lace. The taste is bitter and has great pines and citrus and some herbal tones. Light bodied. Nice starter.

On tap @ 2nd BBF. The aroma is very hoppy, bit herbal/flowery and gives me the impression of juniper. Hazy, orange coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is slightly bitter, grassy hoppy and refreshing. Light bodied, easy drinking beer. Good.

On tap at Borefts BF ’10. The regular APA Solitär led through a so-called Hoppinator. Hazy amber orange colour, no head. Aroma of fresh hops, hop tea, green stuff, cat piss. Flavour is hop tea, too leafy imo, cat piss, earth. Hard to swallow. Not for me this stuff is. Light bodied.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2010 Cask @ BBF 2010. Tapped through heaps of hops (hoppinator), giving the beer a huge but adorable leafy citric hoparoma. Medium bodied. Malty. Leafy very fresh herbal and citric hops in the flavor, lingering on in the long aftertaste. The "hoppination" brings a world of goodness to this beer.
without a Hoppinator......
Keg @ 2nd BBF. Orange color, hazy. Peach and confit fruit in the aroma. Strong cellar flavor, earthy with lots of hops. Totally unbalanced, alas...

Tap @ BBF ’10. Clear golden color, short head. Flowery and hoppy aroma. Dry taste, bit dusty, bit tart like. Strange.

Cask at 2nd BBF @ De Molen. Great aroma. But, no carbonation at all, and way too one-dimensional. Only raw hops, somewhat like hop lemonade. But way too grassy and pure plant material. I like hops but not in this way.
