3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 33cl, Geers. Pours clear orange, sparkling. Rocky frothy white head. Nose of Euro hops, slicky palate a bit buttery, guess it’s also and English yeast they’ve used. Finishes with a touch of caramel malt and spritzy bitterness. This is the perfect base ale for a dryhopped bitter / APA.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
New Viven beer with dense, frothy, snow white head and orangey amber colour, lightly hazy; pleasant aroma of ripe peaches and pineapples, apple, orange peel, biscuit, pink grapefruit, walnuts, honey and quite a lot of iron. Fruity onset, sweetish with smooth, honeyish and caramelly malt sweet background, slick and highly drinkable; finish has agreeable, citrussy and grassy hop bitterishness. Enjoyable thirst quencher, which reminded me more of an English bitter than a Belgian pale ale (or ’spéciale belge’), in its hop bitterness, lightness and smoothness.
