JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2011
Towering, thick cream-orange head over hazy orange beer, beautiful lace. Very fruity, citrussy hops; exotic fruit jumping out of the glass; freshly pressed grapefruit. Very bitter flavour, again quite fruity, citrus peel, citrusmarmalade. Very bitter finish too, bit metallic or quinine-like. Very spritzy, medium bodied and quite slick. Strange, I definitely seem to prefer the classical 33 cl version, rather than this Special Edition. Bitterness here is too harsh, and quite expressly so.

75 cl. bottle/shared@Kulminator: hazy orange with a thick, solid white head that laces very thick, smell is way better than the taste lots of aromatic cascade hops, some yeast, citrus hops, fruity oranges, great, taste on the other hand is rather monotonous lots of bitter citric hops, going to lemon acid, too much booze, misplaced barnyard, very bitter grapefruit, plenty of bitter Belgian yeast, yeasty body, slight grass, I do really dig the regular Magma
