2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
750ml bottle @ #HPJ13. Pours almost black with a small, latte-colored head. Aroma is salty liquorice, grapefruit, some roast. Taste is more on the hoppy side with grapefruity salty liquorice. Dry and roasty. Rather light, a bit watery. Decent carbonation, thin body, as you would expect. Alright, but not really that enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black body. Against the light it’s cloudy dark brown. Rocky and thick head. It has strong chocolate and cocoa aroma with some bready and dust background notes. After the first sip your attention drawn to extremely high carbonation, which bothers you. But taste is cocoa with little sour aftertaste. Bitterness is made from malts and hops and lasts long. Promising but rather average beer. [Bottle]

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
zwart met schuimige bruine kraag
aroma is zeer beperkt of het komt doordat er nasale verstoppingen zijn
smaken: licht zoet, redelijk bitter, licht zuur, zwakke body, dun van textuur, laag co2.
??? weer zo’n dunne waterige Belgische stout, alles is weer op lichte basis, koffie, geroosterde mout, zuurtje, blijkbaar zijn er liefhebbers van dit lichte genre op ratebeer, maar ik mag hem graag wat voller/sterker. vandaar mijn ’lagere’ dan gemiddelde waardering

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A low-abv citra stout from Belgian? Well that certainly raises the bar. It looks really well, for a start, with black body and voluptuous beige head. Lots of roasted malts, coffee, touch of rye and sweet hops. Drinks smoother and lighter than expected, but with a sharp bitter edge, like cacao. Very full for a 4.5% beer. So yes, a very successful experiment if you ask me. (75cl bottle from Dranken Geers)
