4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy amber beer with a big white head. The aroma is yeast, overripe banana, and bubblegum. The flavor is the same but with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber body with a ridiculously huge head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass. Quite unusual nose with peppery and spicy notes accompanied by an odd sour yeasty scent. Taste is quite bitter and spicy with a long strongly dry finish. Carbonation is very high with loads of bubbles forming on the tongue. The palate is medium. This is a rather unusual beer, might need a few more tries to really learn to appreciate it.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Color ambar anaranjado, translúcida pero homogénea. Espuma blanca ahuesada que forma una cabeza vigorosa de burbujas de tamaño medio. Aroma cítrico, a hierba y levadura. Seca, ácida y dulce con un moderado regusto amargo. Cuerpo medio-ligero, buena carbonatación sin resultar excesiva con una agradable permanencia en boca.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
30cl bottle sampled in a trappist glass. Amber colored brew with a large head that you can get much higher than the glass if you pour it right. High retention and leaves much lacing. Aroma of caramel, yeast and spices. Tastes bitter and dry with fruit, caramel, hops. Dry mouthfeel with high carbonation. Lovely beer all year round which improves with age for a couple of years.
