The head is robust, the body dark brown-red. It smells fruity-bitter-plum. The taste is alcoholic-bitter and a bit unbalanced. In the aftertaste it is alcoholic bitter and a bit dusty. 11/11/10/10/-/10

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy orange colour with a nice, firm and creamy, white head. Moderate hoppy aroma along with bready yeasts and sour notes. Flavour has a good hoppy bite and long, dry finish. Again, the typical IJ-yeasty flavours are represented in this beer, making it recognizable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Surprisingly clear for an IJ beer (unless you pour all the yeast), but still not fully so. Amber and with a frothy head. Gummy bear, light yeast, fudge, honey and sticky fruits. A light bitter undertone with an very interesting fruity, sweaty sweetness at first, slowly fading to give way to that bitterness. Sticky mouthfeel, rich palate. Some alcohol in the back? Quite an original brew, with typical IJ yeast and a full bitterness. Whatís not to like? (33cl bottle, found locally!)

Not a giant fan of the aroma, but aside from that a pretty solid beer. Hazy orange appearance, good head. Tastes of citrus, some piney hops, and a bit of skunk.
