psilosophy (480) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - FEB 8, 2014
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur orangée, légèrement floconneuse. Mousse assez abondante et de belle tenue. Des arômes fruités, fruits exotiques; orange, pointe de vanille en fin de bouche, finalement assez complexe et bien équilibrée. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Plosgataert.

beeebon (168) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2014
A hazy orange coloured beer with minimal but lingering head. Taste is various fruits like apple (reminding me of cider at times), pear, grapes and plum. Added to this is the yeast and some spice. The taste is sweet and a little sour with mild bitterness. A very decent beer.

SimonBeer (94) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2014
(Drinking date: 1 February 2014) Orange hazy colour, head disappears quickly. Smells like honey and ripe fruits. The taste is a bit sweet, almost not bitter. So it has a sweet taste, but not too sweet. You taste things like ripe fruits. It is really delicious! The mouthfeel of the beer is almost perfect. It has a bit of a thick mouthfeel, it feels soft, and it leaves an enjoyable warm feeling in your mouth and throath. It would have been perfect if it has a little bit more carbonation. Overall I really enjoy this beer!

shoulderbroken (1881) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 14, 2014
Bottle from Craft webshop. Murky amber brown colour. Bit of a gusher. Aroma is boozy, yeasty, quite sweet. Taste is alright, not so exciting, some grain, tripel like, boozy again. Quite fizzy with bit of a fruity punch at the start. Lemony bitter. After that, not so much. Bit boring.

a_cross (593) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013
A gusher; cloudy orange, floaty bits, large white head; hoppy aroma; taste is fruity, appley, funky; hard to describe (especially when your not taking notes because you’re eating your Christmas Eve dinner) but make no mistake this was gloriously moreish and I’ll be having one or two more in 2014.

Trappist1 (420) - Diest, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2013
Dark orange, evaporating beige airy head. Nose: cherries, sour hint, wild yeast. good carbonation. taste: fruity, apple, flowers. finish is sweetish, subtile, but mainly sourish. very refreshing, whaaaw I am perplexed. what a surprise. I definitely thad this beer before, cant remember it tasted this way (sourish) and this good! (had the bottle in The Capital and did check maturity date which was still good)
