2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Joes. Again I got the last part of the bottle (sort of speak) and it was totally murky, yellow colored with slightly some yeast particles floating in there. Small off-white head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma is totally weird, it reminds me of Indian rice...wtf.. Taste is yeasty, a bit sweetish, it’s alright actually. Don’t like the aroma but the taste is decent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to Kraddel. 33 cl. bottle split by 3. Orange, quickly gone head. Lots of mellow orange and light marmalade in the nose, hay, straw, peaches, lightly rustic. Tastes of mellow biter zest, light esters, sweet orange, dash marmalade, touch creamy, lightly sweet. Not stellar or pronounced enough to reach for the stars but still a very lovely drink. I may be anything but a fan of most ’t Hofbrouwerijke beers but is definitely one of the good ones.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 75 cl, BBE 02/2016. Pours unclear pale goden in color with a creamy
whitish head. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Fruity citrus, summer meadow
and lots of more lime-like notes in aroma. Light biting peppery spicyness and
lemony juicyness mostly in taste, some parts are slightly bitter, some are again
more sweeter as in ripe garden fruityness. Nice one with a very refreshing,
slighty bitter, ending.
