4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, picked up@de Bierkoning, Amsterdam. A gusher. Some Paasij spilt whilst pouring, unfortunately. A huge frothy white head over a cloudy pale amber, and needless to say, very lively body. Nice Belgo-yeasty aroma, tangerine-scented with a note of bubblegum and a sour-tart fruits . Taste has a fine crispness, wheaty and dry fruity with a light sourish accent. Also a note of fresh yeast. Healthy body. A pleasant astringency on the palate. Finishes dry and mild fruity-tart. Another excellent brew from the Dutch pioneers.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In short: A sweet yeasty blonde Belgian ale that does in many direction. A fun mess.
How: Bottle 33ml. Exact age unknown, probably the year before release. Given to me by Borresteijn. Thanks Rob.
The look: Cloudy blonde body topped by a medium white head
In long: Nose is strong, yeasty, some phenols and with an overall sweet bakery sensation like a baklava. Taste is sweet but a little less than the nose suggested. Crisp pie crust, caramel, candied apples, light spicy notes, light sour apple notes, bakery, various light color fruits. There was something a bit wild about the yeast character that I liked but overall the beer is kind of here and there with no direction. A bit messy but still fun. This beer is a yearly Easter beer brewed to celebrate the resurrection of a bunny.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Gold to amber coloured, white head, somewhat hazy. Aroma is fresh, oranges, tangerines (mandarijnen), peaches, sweet fruits. Tastes light bitter, with lots of carbonation. Some bitterness in the finish. Aroma is nevertheless more promising than the taste.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle, brought back from Amsterdam by my parents - thanks! Pours a super hazy orange with a gigantor head that refuses to die. Seriously amazing. Nose is lemony bretty funk, apple skins, light honey, hay-like malt. Flavor is yeasty phenols - general fruitiness leaning towards apple, a bit of clove, lemon candy brett, a bit of cherry pie filling. Bitterness is solid, balancing some very nice lightly toasted malt. Finish is slightly tingly, with lingering yeast, lemon candy & cherry pie brett. This brewery rocks.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the brewpub. Pours hazy orange gold with a large foamy nearwhite head. Standard belgian ale smell - cooked fruit, spice and hop. Medium body with lightly foamy carbonation. Thereís cooked light fruit and yeast/spice. It all goes very well together. Finishes with something like noble hop bitter. Really very tasty.
