4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Misty orange body, large stable head. Significant hop aroma, classic yet rich enough to give a modern appeal. Oranges and light malts, summery. Quite bitter though, good, but dry, sour even. Not sessionable because if lack if taste, but because of its dry character. Turned out well and interesting. (Tilburg Beer Festival)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 330 ml, poured into a tulip at home. ABV 4.9%
Dark golden orange colour on the body, very clear, with good activity in it. Huge and thick head, slighty off white in colour, with very good retention. Heavy lacing left on the glass.
Aroma of citrus fruits, grapefruit, orange peel, but also pine, fresh cut grass, light tropical fruits, really great use of aromatic hops.
Taste is bitter from the very first sip, becoming even more bitter until it reaches its climax on the aftertaste. Hops, citrus fruits, pine, lemon zest, lime leaves.
Medium thin body, good carbonation with a bite on the tongue. Quite dry on the palate.
Overall a very good beer, very tasty and with such a low alcohol level.
