Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is not very pleasant. I get some biscuit malt and a little bit of yeast, but I also get something that resembles dirty socks and some steamed vegetables.
The flavor is better than the aroma. I get some yeast and grain notes as well as some orange citrus. Even though there is nothing offensive in the flavor, I can’t get past the aroma, making the beer somewhat hard to drink.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home shared with DutchDrebus. Slightly hazy yellow / orange color, lacing white head. Smell pepper and a lot of other spices or herbs, not nice. Taste ok, but also spices or herbs come through again. Not really good in my opinion.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great! I had a feeling of a honey and coconat touch! Hazy amber, white head, robust body with a distinctive alcoholic foretaste, anyway hoppy and so coconat aroma in nose. Anyway hints of nuts, seeds and spices like coriander, cherries in chocolate, honey and dry hoppy cake on palate. Nice nutty long pleasant finish, wow! B@H
