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.

Thereís cooked light fruit and yeast/spice. It all goes very well together. Finishes with something like noble hop bitter. Really very tasty.
