25/X/2012 - 33cl bottle from Willems (Grobbendonk) @ home - BB: 14/VI/13 (2012-1175)

Clear orange to amber beer, big fluffy irregular head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: bit fruity, lots of oranges, bit sweet, some citrus, little soapy. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: orange peel, lots of it! Little bit of caramel, fudge, but not really sweet, buttered whole grain toast, some citrus. Aftertaste: citric hops, some caramel, orange peel, little bitter. Ok, but not as good as the other beers from this brewery I had before.

Bottle thx to benzai. Slightly hazy orange, golden colour with a small white head. Smells herbs, green twigs and malts. Mostly herbs i dont like. Tastes malty, fresh, some iron.. Not bad! Quite decent taste, nothing very special or complex. Good carbo, thin to medium body.

77ships (3594) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 20, 2014
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Willems. BBF 16/07/2015. Hazy dark orange, solid white head. Nose is thick BE yeast, darker honey, caramel, sugar, thick malty with herbs, decent start. Tastes of sweet mellow honey, nuts, touch herbal, brown sugar, herbs, warming, touch boozy, doesn’t come entirely together but definitely nicer than the score would indicate on RB. Not on par with my introduction to the brewery “Alpaïde”.
