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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
large rocky frothy offwhite head. good lacing. mostly diminishing. flat thick dark orange body. aroma: orange, butter, honey, orange jam, metal. if: moderate sweet. ff: light sweet moderate bitter; long duration. palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic finish. Delicioso dulçor de laranja. Leve amargor, lembrando a casca desta fruta, não chega a incomodar no final. Deliciosa cerveja, surpreendente. Metalizado do aroma aparece em doses terapêuticas no paladar, não sendo passível de considerar como defeito. Amargor, leve no final do gole na primeira metade do copo, se torna médio na segunda metade do copo, ainda balanceado e agradável em conjunto com a cerveja. Excelente drinkability. 160 s

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg.
Hazy light orange with a white head. Sweet aroma with a hint of hops.
Taste is moderately bitter. Body is a bit thin but decent. Nice little ale, not too fancy but more exciting than a standard pilsener or speciale Belge.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours copper with a decent white head. Felt very odd drinking an English-inspired Belgian ale, rather than the other way round. Blends some dry earthy Goldings hops with a soft English ale bitterness, but just finishes a bit dull and boring for me.
