3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle. Pours a hale golden orange, with a good-sized, clean, white head. Aroma is orange, grapes, slightly vinous, fermented fruit, peach. Taste is semi-dry. Quite spicy, fermented fruit, some peach, quite a bit of spicy and flowery hoppiness. Fairly light with decent carbonation. Good, reliable, stable, if not very remarkable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml swing top bottle. A lightly hazy medium golden beer with an average sized, frothy, mostly diminishing white head. Interesting and very balanced aroma, moderately malty, lightly to moderately hoppy and lightly yeasty. There are notes of biscuits, bread, grass, honey, spices (mainly pepper) and lemon. The flavour is moderately sweet, lighty sour, lightly bitter. Very bready, almost chewy. Nice spicey hints, clean. Medium body, lively carbonation, long finish with medium bitterness, lightly alcoholic. Very enjoyable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
75 cl swingtop bottle. Cloudy orange yellow, foamy white head slowly settles and lingers. Aroma is yeasty and fruity. Spritzy and bitter, odd earthy yeasty taste, semi sweet fruitiness, mild malts and spice. Lively carbonation, light-medium bodied, low hopped. This brew is kinda funked up, I’m not digging the barnyard thing. Slightly acidic and vionous towards the finish. Pass. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy, medium golden body with a small, frothy, white head that is quite short-lived and leaves a decent amount of lacing on my plastic cup(!). I find rating aroma outdoors extremely difficult, but it would be impolite to go indoors and leave my BBQ guests in the garden, so I remain seated and try to catch some scents from the before mentioned plastic cup, while the wind blows and the fumes from the grill try to trick my nose. The aroma is moderate to light (but then again, the lack of intensity might be due to outdoor rating), with pale malts, fruits and yeast. Moderate to light sweet taste with some acidity and a moderate bitter finish. The flavours are far more complex than the aroma, confirming that I shouldn’t be allowed to judge the aroma outdoors: Fruits (with faint banana), spices, yeast, perfume, herbs, resin, honey and some alcohol in the form of white wine notes. The finish is quite alcoholic, but it still feels fairly well integrated. Medium body, dry to oily texture, soft carbonation. A good one!
