4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Foggy, honey coloured with a big creamy foam. Aroma is malty and very bisquit like with fresh fruity hints. The spicey accents are working well with the fruity oranges and peaches. The taste is soft and mild in the mouth. In the biginning, there is at first a round maltyness with hints of honey. Than the fruity and spiceyness is covering the mild sweetness of the taste. In the finale there is a original bitterness of herbs and undifinable hops. Alcohol works well with the dominating fruity carracter.
From a 33cl bottle.

On tap at the Struise Farm in Lo. Served in a frozen goblet by Carlo. The beer was foggy and intens yellow to orange. The foam was White and verry fluffy like dubble cream. The aroma is hot, it hat hints of Confit de fruit exotique, pepper, Ginger? and other spices. The taste is indeed powerfull and a bit alcoholic (Eau-de vie) Poire and mirabelle. The feeling in the mouth is like balm. Cake, Fruits Exotiques and spices. Great when served ice-cold, still exellend when it warms up, ut verry verry dangerous.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught - Kulminator - Antwerpen - A hazy orangey coloured beer with a whitish head. The aroma is yeasty with peppery hops and a touch of black pepper also. The taste is high alchol with peppery spicy notes. Yeasty also. Seemed a little young but shows great potential for aging.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at Kulminator. Deep orange with a big, lacing offwhite head. Fruity and somewhat bitter-spicy nose. Flavours are more complex, still sweet, notes of orange peel, quite fruity, yet with a dry finish. Full-bodied. Tasted very young- thus likely to improve as it matures.
