Served at ambient temperature in a trappist glass. Cloudy, orange body with a frothy, white head. Good glass-lacing. Fruity profile on aroma and taste with hints of yeast. Modest notes of hop bitterness towards the ending, though fairly sweet. Medium palate (BBF, Oslo 10.04.2008)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught, Bruxellensis. Extreme lacing in this relatively big-bubbled, but uniform hazy golden-amber ale. Cerealic, almost wheaty flavour profile. Floral also. A rather vital little amber ale with honeyed malt flavours punctuated with the casual soft biscuit touch. Gentle, crisp floral hops, mineral finish with a kiss of acidity. Really well done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Poured a copper light brown color with a thin creamy head. The aroma is spicy orange peels, slightly hoppy to the nasal cavity. The taste is a sweet spicy malt with a dry caramel candy finish.

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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(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.
