3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Upright, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of light spices, herbal and farmhouse notes. Flavour of slightly salty notes, some spices, and some restrained farmhouse notes. Pretty light-bodied and lightly salty. Decent stuff, though not a whole lot of character to it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery. I believe this is mixed with Bols Genever. Very interesting. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a medium white head. A big herbal nose with some fruit. Berries, gin, some earthy lemon and even oranges, sweet and easy malt base. Good.

Pours a light orange. Good sparkle to it but with each sip the licorice and anise take over the forefront. An interesting experiment that just misses for me.

Tap @ Upright.... Poured golden with a white head. The nose had some herbs, dirty earthiness and root tones. The botanicals played nicely adding depth, floralness, and bitterness to the malt body. Couldn’t taste much juniper but I could see how this would pair nicely with Bols Genever as it is intended to.
