33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ the Marqt supermarket, Den Haag. Hazy amber with an off-white head. Malty yeasty aroma and taste. A bit too much yeast in my opinion. furthermore itís rather sweet and one dimensional. One of the lesser ít Ij beers.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle@rotterdam. Brown murky. Ripe fruity, slightly estery aroma. Piney hops, plummy malts, some banana even. Bitter body. Sweet malts, toffee buttescotch caramels, some raisin syrup. Citrus, blood grape finish. Strange one. Definitely not what I expected (a hopped double ipa), but something rather belgy/estery. Given the raves it has got, I wonder whether mine wasntít really what it shouldíve been, but had no issues finishing it though..

330 ml. bottle. Hazy brown colour, with a big head and a lace that seems to last forever. Smell of chocolate, vanilla, raisins, spice. Medium body, smooth palate, the beer slicks from the tongue to the throat gently. Taste of chocolate, caramel, fruits. Great.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours amber with really huge head. Malty, bready aroma. Itís quite sweet... and boring. Itís nothing really happening in this beer. Highly carbonated, But I have to say, the 9% ABV is well hidden.
