3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thx. to Martinus for this one another one added to my Hof ten Dormaal collection. 375 ml. green bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2013. Opaque yellow with a white head. Nose showcase the typical home-grown barley & hop character of HtD with their atypical hops winning the show mixed with a lot of herbs & coriander. Taste is sweet, milk, lots of spices, coriander, cleaning agents, their home-grown hop & barley showing here. Medium hazy, bodied, I believe that I was supposed to dislike this one… meh it is not bad & enjoyable albeit not their best.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Special ale with snow white head, quickly decreasing, and deep peach blonde colour, hazy. Noble and perfumed aroma of marzipan, bread, cinnamon, cognac, apple peel, orange liqueur. Fruity taste, a bit one-dimensional compared to the promising aroma, sweetish, bit thin mouthfeel, aromatic and spicy, finishing in dryish, grassy hops. Love the aroma, the taste is a whole lot less satisfying.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Head fast gone over hazy orange-golden beer. Citrus, orange, leafy and yeasty. Smells... unfinished. Spicy-yeasty main flavour, some indefinite yeastesters. Slick, medium bodied, yeast-filled, well-carbonated feel. Needs lagering, lagering... before leaving the brewery.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml bottle. Completely hazy and orange with small head. Nose : esters and yeast. The fruit aromas are apricot and banana. Some chestnuts. Sip : good carbonation and creamy body. Sweet and yeasty with esters. It develops the usual estery banana, orange and apricot. Very little bitterness. The hops develops mostly flower notes. Nothing exciting.
