An amber, craft beer with generous amounts of hops and alcohol. This copper-gold beer is a real heavyweight and a must for beer lovers. The liberal quantities of malt and bitter hops create a complex, full flavour. It starts as slightly sweet with malty aromas of chocolate, fruit and grain, while the bitter hops stand out nicely in the aftertaste. A feast for the connoisseur!

0.33 l bottle shared with ?omo, Dinko and Jela. Thanks Dinko. Hazy orange, medium off white head. Orange, fruity, biscuit. Sweet and dry, hoppy and zest finish. Some alcohol.

Een redelijk zware Nederlands bier, een donkere kleur. Een goede schuimkraag.

Van de tap kort bij de bron: licht wazig oranjekleurig bier met mooie schuimkraag. Aroma is Belgisch blond gist met lichte sinaasappeltoets. Smaak bestaat uit semi zoete honing, hints van caramel, pittige harde oranje bitterheid. Zoetige afdronk met ruime bitterheid in de nasmaak.

Mooi amberkleurig bier met volle schuimkraag die lekker aan het glas blijft plakken. Aroma van caramel, toffee, beetje mout. Lekker vol van smaak. Biertje dat je gerust rond mag laten gaan in de mond. Lekkere warme afdronk met heel klein bittertje op het einde. Echt genietersbier. Top !!

De geur is heel lekker. Als je het uitschenkt zit het vol met vlokken, wat ik iets minder vind. De smaak is heel speciaal, redelijk lekker. Geen topbier maar stelt zeker niet teleur.

Calisky (2411) - ALSACE, FRANCE - OCT 29, 2015
Couleur ambrée trouble, légère mousse. Nez levuré, agrumes, raisin, note aigre. Gout fruité, un peu confit, agrumes, levures puis doux malté et alcool. Assez simple pour le style.

Donkerblond bier met mooie schuimkraag. Ietwat onaangename geur: Cacao doppen doordrenkt met fruit/citrus. Smaak mooi gelaagd. Moet, karamel, fruit,kruidig licht hoppig. Nasmaak vooral mout. Lekker!

PhillyCraft (5474) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Draft at the source, pours hazy orange with a sopay white head. Nice head and lace. Aromas and flavor are caramel, fruit, and other semi-sweet malt tones. I guess there’s some Columbus in there but its such a terrible hop especially when its alone. Average.

MelvinKalksma (791) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2015
Aroma: Malt, toast, caramel, hop, flowers, fruit, yeast. Could have been more defined. Appearance: Amber/brown beer with a white/off-white head. Taste/Palate: Caramel, hop, fruit. Sweet fruits, ends spicy thanks to the yeast.
