3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UFO-riddled bottle, raising a tower of dense, fine, yellow head, slowly giving birth to orange gold-to-copper, very finely and lively carbonated, but strangely enough near clear beer. C-hop aroma, but also cookies, even liquorice. Exotic fruit syrup, rosewater concentrate - smelling pretty sweet. Toasted and hopbitter, but with a really syrupy-sweet undercurrent. Fruit dried fruit on cake, liquorice, bitter spices. Very slightly sticky, well-carbonated, light to medium bodied. Hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Somehow, it doesn’t convince me - there’s just too much sweet malts for its intended purpose. Which does not make it a bad beer, mind!

Bottle at home. High fluffy and long lasting white head. Hazy amber orange body. Dusty straw bisquit aroma. Mildly hopped and yet quite tasty orange lemon flavor with low carbonation and a surprisingly long finish. Well done.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a nice citrus/grapefruit note with a hint of resin and a light grain backbone. Flavor has a real nice citrus note that grows in bitterness and is backed by light sweet grains.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. Pours an amber colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of grapefruit, herbal hoppiness and nettles. Flavour of crisp herbal hoppiness, grass, chewy citrusy notes, resin and bready malts. Light bodied and a dry, strong bitter finish. Carbonation is a bit too high. Overall refreshing and nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle.
Pours hazy amber color with a large head. Lots of resinous hops on the nose, caramel malts too, I would have guessed this as a DIPA from the aroma if tasted blind, some grapefruits, pine needles and grainy notes can be found too. Resinous hops again on the flavor, caramel, sweet fruity notes and wood. Strong carbonation, bitter malty finish. Lots of flavor here but somehow it’s not that pleasant for me, maybe too resinous or something.

(Bottle, In De Wildeman, Amsterdam, 1 March 2014) Hazy amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with citrus, apricots, grapefruit and slightly grainy malt. Malty, hoppy taste with notes of grainy malt, apricots, orange peel, grapefruit, crisp-bread and a certain citric bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. Tasty and refreshing, highly drinkable. Nice one.

Aroma has citrus, some resiny tones and caramel. Also some hops and fruits. Flavour has some plastic tones, gooseberry bush and fruity notes. Aroma was nice but flavour is bitter in a harsh way. Plastic notes take over at the end of the glass.
