3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Van Moll Brewpub shared with Erwin Van Moll. Hazy light orange color, small quickly diminishing off-white head. Aroma is brett-ish, citrussy, slightly orangepeel, slightly the amarillo hops come through. Tastes about the same: brett-ish, green apple, citrussy, orangepeel, a touch of the amarillo hops and a nice sour-bitter finish. Suitable body, low carbonation. Lovely brew, very refreshing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Served in a shaker:
Snall white head, disappears quick, leaves some bubbles on top of a hazy orange colored beer.
Aromas of grapes, berries, wild yeast, apricot, light woody, light tart and some flowers with a malty sprinkle.
Flavour has loads of white wine notes, grapes, some oak/wood, some earth, some wild yeast, some apricot, light tart, light bitter, malty bitter, grape tarty. Nice but prefer the previous version a bit more!
Aftertaste is grapes with earth and some malty bitters and older apricot with a yeasty sprinkle.
Low carbo, light creamy mouthfeel, more than just medium bodied and a light watery texture.
More than decent, prefered the other one more, but for sure some beers not to be missed!
