2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2008 Au fut @ Bruxellensis. Orange-amber, slightly hazy, with a tight-laced head. Medium to weak aroma with citrus, orange, hops, cinnamon. Excellent balance with sweetish citrus fruit, medium to strong bitterness, and a dry, grassy-hop finish. Lots of character, with some farmhouse qualities and restrained spicing, yet quaffable. Re-rating after trying bottled version, which was tart with some sour orange candy notes in aroma and flavor. Bitterness was light, finish was abrupt. It was better fresh on tap rather than bottle conditioned, IMO.

(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a hazy, orange with an off-white head. Unclean, fruity aroma. Light-bodied, light notes of caramel and fruit with an edge of metal. Fairly dry finish with some bitterness. Not exactly thrilling. 200507

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized beige head, which leaves A LOT of lace. Aroma is very much American hops, thought of an American Pale Ale when I took the nose samlple of this one (yes, I poured my nose too deep...). Flavour is yeast, some hops and slight caramel malts. Very pleasantly balanced, but at the sametime very refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. An unclear orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of fruit, medium notes of yeast and lighter notes of spices - especially coriander. The flavor is sweet malty and rather spicy again coriander being strongest, but also with quite strong notes of herbs, leading to a dry finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very little in the way of aromas ... well, OK ... a hint of spiciness and, as I brought it to my lips, yes, a hint of cheese. Big, off-white head that collapses slowly into a nice, moussy consistency, leaving some lace. Orange amber, slightly hazy, but that is unsurprising. Slightly lactic sour. Quite dry. Almost watery, medium-light bodied. leaving a slightly sour aftertaste.
