2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(33cl bottle, with the additive “winterspecial”) Hazy, orange colour with a medium-sized frothy white head. Yeasty, light-sweet and soft malty nose with stronger zesty spicy notes of coriander. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a fizzy carbonation. Pale malty, yeasty and slightly fruity taste with spicy coriander-accents; dry-ish, fizzy, slightly bitter and spicy finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty solid drop. Hazy dull orange with a thin fizzy head - very attractive. Masses of apricot on the nose, very distinctive and very lifted. Palate is very fizzy but it seems to work in this instance. Flavours are driven with fruity malts, apricot and a slight lemon note. Some heat and aniseed in the back palate, more from the alcohol than anything else. So much obvious appeal in this beer.

Bottled. Hazy orange colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, yeast and citrus. Flavour is quite much the same. Quite watery brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled@De Wildeman, Amsterdam) Opaque orange with a smallish, creamy and lasting head. Honey-sweetish, lightly grainy, pale-malty aroma. Sweet and grainy-worty flavor with low bitterness, but still some aromatic-flowery hops. Medium-bodied, smooth-carbonated palate. A quite sweet, but not cloying brew - pleasantly smooth.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear light golden beer with a light white cover that lasts. Yeasty, bready and slightly alcoholic nose. Its herbal hops provide a certain dryness, but not without vegetal underlying tones. Also a bit sulphury in its heavily mineral provile. Not my favourite, it reveals inconsistencies as it warms and is less clean than most dutch draught offerings.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33 cL at Take One in Maastricht. Golden beer with decent white head and nose of caramel sugar, oranges, honey, coriander. Sweet beer with light bitterness and boozy notes. Medium to full body. A bit wet. I found it nice enough, but a little too sweet and out of balance.
