2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2013 15/I/13 - 33cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker), not sure though @ home - BB: VII/2014 (2013-24)
Clear light orange beer, small irregular off-white head, unstable, dissipates immediately, non adhesive. Some small sediment floating around. Aroma: very fruity, peaches, hint of exotic fruit (passion fruit and pineapple), some overripe fruits, grains, a bit off. MF: too much carbon, medium body. Taste: citrus, grassy, some overripe fruits, grapefruit, pretty bitter. Aftertaste: more citrus, unpleasant bitterness, still pretty fruity, medicinal bitterness, something off. Needs some getting used to, don’t drink straight from the fridge. Funny to read there is cascade in it, while I’m entering my review. I thought there was no exotic fruits in the previous versions. Liked them better though.
