Bottle from Rooie Dop, Utrecht at the RBESG 2013. Poured a cloudy amber with a broken white head. The aroma is rich hops and yeast. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with loads of grassy hops and nettles. It’s a really zesty refreshing beer!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Douberd - many thanks, Christos! The beer pours out in a hazy orange-amber colour with airy steady head and medium body. Aroma of hops and sweet citrus fruits. Taste of mild hops, oranges, lemonade, flowers, dust, nuts and straw. Sweet, caramel-like finish. Too sweet for me but otherwise quite nice.

A nice and classy apa with a decent hoppy start and some grass, citrus in the Aroma. Easy to drink with some bittersweet moments. Quaffy all the way without being rocket science.

Mango, grapefruit taste, pineapple, pine, passion fruit, tropical fruits, citrus, caramel, taste is a bit less outspoken than I hoped for after the smell but still wonderful.

Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Funny thing, today at the Eindhoven Beerfestival the lads of De Rooie Dop told me that the keg was a bit old and let me taste a bit from that keg. It tasted more planty and dusty. They told me the bottles atthe store, they brought along, were only 3 weeks old. So to taste this beer fresh, I got a bottle right away. And hell yeah this one is nothing close to planty and dusty but fruity and bitter! Very good!
Medium sized vast and slowly changing, sticky creamy foamy head on top of a hazy to murky orange colored beer.
Aromas of load of hop fruits: peach, apricot, mango, pine apple, some grapefruit, hop flowers, herbs, fruity herbs, tea herbs, some cloves, fruity malts and crispy!
Flavours of hops, herbs, cloves, mango, peach, apricot, grapefruit, bitter, yeast, some leaves, fruity floral tones, light malty tone and some fruity herbs that come from the fruity hops and yeast. Lovely fruity and bitter!
Aftertaste is bitter with lot of (bitter) gruits, herbs, some porridge malts and creamy hay.
Low carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, medium to fuller bodied and a creamy texture.
Marvelous beer! Whether they come from The Netherlands or not, this is better than the Laugar Hop Shock!
