2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle. Clear pinkish dark golden colour with huge, frothy to macropore, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, yellowish off-white head. Fruity aroma has notes of red berries, cautious yeasty overtones. Taste is minimally sweet malty, cautiously fruity, minimally dry with hints of fruit parings; in the end with unmatching bitter hoppy overtones, minimally soapy, hints of vegetable. Watery throughout.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Mostly hops, aspirine and alcohol in the aroma, with a tiny bit of orange. The taste is quite bitter. Reminds me of the tripel hopped Duvel, but without the flowery, champagne-like taste. Bright orange color. Head doesn’t last, but there is some lacing.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is rather plain, reminiscent of a low-fermented beer. Slightly spiced with some earthy hops.
Appearance is a mostly clear amber. Head was not very thick, and faded into a slight residue on the glass.
Taste is sweet, and you can still sense those earthy hops above the malt. The flavors come in two waves: first caramel malt, then into a slight fading bitterness.
Palate is light, and quite drinkable; not much heavier than water.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Beernavigator. close to BB-date. Pours amber with small white head. Like a traditional hoppy lager on the nose, with herb, yeast and bread tones and a touch of seet plums. A bit oily, herbs, yeast, mid-bitter and mid-sweet. Some unclean off tastes or simply a bit old. Still an ok drink.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear light amber, off-white head. Something very strange in its aroma and taste, like some fresh herb has been added. Something like nettles. Don’t like it.
