UPDATED: JAN 30, 2014 Creamy head, orange red body. Honey, dough, pear and some malts. Lovely mild bitter, easy to drink still. Especially nice mouthfeel. Has the taste of much more than 5,5%, in a good way. My surprise of the festival. (On tap at Botermarkt Bierfestival Haarlem) (Rating re-indexed)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gift from my girlfriend. She bought it at a Mitra in Purmerend. Bottle. Pours amber / dark orange with a good white head. Great aroma with hints of fruits, spices and hops. Reminded me of an American IPA. Taste is sweet with the fruits again and the hops. Nice bitter finish. The hops taste wonderful (dry-hopped). The balance between sweet and bitter is great. Not to hoppy like an IPA. Pleasantly surprised.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Home 20110310 (33 cl bottle): A thin white good head and a dark briljant yellow colour. The aroma is malty, fruity (apples, peache, little citrus) and a nice hop bitterness. In the taste some malty, a nice sweetness which compensate the dry hop bitterness in the finish. Also a little yeast in the taste. Later a slightly sticky.

This beer has a colour i like. Lacking a little bit in taste. Easy to drink. It’s a good beer, but it’s just not that special to me.
