From the tap at Cafe de Dokter in Amsterdam. Wasn’t as dark as I was expecting....pretty light overall. Sweet, maybe a little too much.

Foam is like a see as waiter told. But it disappears. Sweetish caramel smooth aftertaste. Bit of crunchy corn.

Pours an orange/Amber with an off white head. The smell is overripe banana, yeast, sweet fruit. The taste is as it smells... Lots of sweet, ripe banana ending with a bit of dryness. Light + in body with average carbonation. A bit too sweet...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer has a real nice appearance. The color is a beautiful amber/orange. The beer pours a 2 centimeter layer of white foam, which disappears quick to leave thin drape of white foam. The smell is very good. Here is a little almond aroma. Here is also some roasted aroma, really subtle, but really nice. The taste also has some of those almond aspects. It also has a sweet fruity tone, which is a very nice way to balance the robust aspects of the beer. Very good brew.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Lemony aroma that is light but pleasant. Appearance true to type maybe slightly too murky. Taste is light but not memorable. Decent but not exceptional. Palate is smooth, clean mouthfeel but nothing striking. Overall just a clean beer I would recommend to anyone that can get it close to where it is brewed.
