3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is hazy medium yellow, unfiltered.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of lemon/lime/orange peels, pepper, gum.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Pleasant and clean, not what I was expecting given that this comes out of the De Proef factory. Lots of citrus peel and floral character...simple but nice. Could use more bitterness or tartness in the finish to make it more interesting (once you swallow, it pretty much vanishes completely), but all in all it’s decent.

Taste: malty start, cookie dough, some citrus, grassy bitter hops, spices. Aftertaste: fruity notes, some grains and sweet malts, grassy bitterness, dry and pretty bitter ending, but making you want to have another sip. Well done...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the March 2014 De Molen monthly tasting. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a thick white head, some broken lace and a few bubbles. The aroma is yeast, light peach. The flavour is medium bitter light sour with a crisp refreshing yeast light fruit hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. An interesting beer. Nice enough to taste, but i’m note sure i’d buy it again. It doesn’t have much beer magnetism for me.
