UPDATED: MAR 3, 2015
Old rating. 0,33l. Best before 09/2010. Orange-trüb im Glas. Der Antrunk ist mild-säuerlich. Zum Hauptteil wird die milde Säuerlichkeit deutlicher, leicht herb-hopfig, frisch-grasig. Der Nachgeschmack ist hefig, leicht herb, angenehm sauer mit leicht mild-fruchtiger Nore.
Sehr interessant, lecker, süffig, toll!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the brewery in April 2008 (on tap I think). Amber with a slight haze. Lightly fruity aroma with a hint of toffee. Clean on the palate with some slightly bready malts. Slightly acidic edge on the finish. Touch of residual sweetness. Easy drinking. Fine but nothing particularly out of the ordinary.

4oz pour at Max’s Rare and Obscure Beer Week Part 4. Pours a hazy, burnt orange with a thin, creamy white head. Nose is orangey, light candy, malty, a little perfume. Flavor is grassy, a little medicinal, malty, yeasty. Obviously a Euro IPA. Medium bodied with a sweet finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting.
Body is hazy medium amber, bottle conditioned.
Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread/grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, orange), lightly yeasty (cobwebs, mold), with notes of peach, straw.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation.
Could use a more richness and aromatic allure, but for what it offers, it’s very pleasant and very drinkable. Like the Xxtra saison, it’s only fault is in what it lacks.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from brewery, good amber, but I just don’t like ambers. Caramel amber pour, caramel Martinez and fruity yeast in aroma. All that and raisiny sweetness in flavor, medium mouthfeel. Ok
