4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a huge white head with good retention and leaving some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and grains with some piney notes. Taste is a citrus and pine hop bitterness with some spicy notes and a grainy malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with generous carbonation. A very well done session ale with lots of flavor and worth checking out.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Bierkoning, bottled 19/09/13. Nice clear orangey gold pour with really lacy foamy white head. Aroma of spicy citrusy hops, you can really pick up the blend of saaz and Citra not much malt aroma coming through except maybe a hint of caramel. Taste is bitter,a tad overly so, the age or the caramel malt have made the flavors just a bit harsh. Quite tasty overall though, good refreshing palate. Would love to try this on tap.

Bottle @ home. Hazy yellow to orange with a medium to big white head. Smells quite nice! Fruity, fresh, hoppy, floral.. Lovely. Tastes hoppy, fresh, some pine, grapefruit and lovely bitter. Great brew! Medium body (even though it?s only 4.9%), great carbo. It could’ve been a bit more crisp.. That would make it evwn nwtter for me, but I have no idea how that should be achieved.
