Bottle 33 cl. Pours a cloudy opaque golden with a white head. Fresh fruity nose, with some yeast and a little friendly phenols. Medium body, a slightly tart, fresh fruitiness - even a little overripe - oranges? Ends dry - again with friendly phenols. Enjoyable. 030312

Very hazy gold beer. Small off white head. Light palate, crisp and dry. Minerally hops. Seltzer minerals dominate a mild starfruit - citrus. Semi dry finish. Okay but was hoping for far more hop wallop!

On tap at Haand Festival. A dense, finger-thick off-white head sits on top of an unclear, golden-orange body. The aroma has vinous notes, citrus peel and pine cones, and some pale malts in the back. It’s lightly malty on the palate too, pale malts only, with a medium to full body, quite dry and with a strange woody mouthfeel. Citrus peel, pine cones and some hints of white wine in the flavor, lasting for some time. Well, I like the vinous touch in this one, else it’s a bit ordinary. 130525
