Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is grass, fruits and some yeast. Flavour is toffee, fruity hops as well as some slight earth and mild spices. Nice filling palate, but nothing special. Dries out your throat.

Bottled. Hazy amber, small head. Fruity plum aroma. Sweet with clean mouthfeel and medium body. Notes of soil, bread and orange. While warming the flavours open up and it becomes more attractive.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark hazy amber color, steady white creamy head, lots of floating yeast particles. Toffeish, flowery hoppy aroma. Liquerish palate, nice whiskey fudge flavor with backing alcohol. Sweetish and light hoppy bitterish aftertaste. This is more solid and balanced than the other Mortals I’ve sampled.

Bottle from Olivier, many thanks!!
Sweet fruit cake (oranges, pears, litchis, etc.) pricks the nostrils and heralds oncoming dessert. Unique and inviting.
Doughy yeast serves as the foundation for the aforementioned sweet fruit cake. Hop bitterness surprises round the corner of a random peach and remains fit till the end. At this point, it appears not cohesive enough to me, although its individuality is certainly appealing.
A future genius trying out his first experiments.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange-amber; cream-coloured head, fast dwindling to white rim. Alcoholic nose, herbal, compound spicey (pepper, sandalwood,coriander, nutmeg, orangezest). Peppery, fruity (banana, Reine Claude) and woody taste - some tannines if you ask me. Sweet, but nowhere cloying. Ah! rather refreshing mouthfeel despite all the loading (there's REALLY fruit in this beer). For a Walloonian beer, this seems remarkably iron-free liquor. Long peppery aftertaste. Again a beer, well-worth looking for. Following the brewer, the main difference with the Yellow are the home-grown hops.
