Beertobealive (558) - Courbevoie, FRANCE - FEB 7, 2017
Pours a thin beige to white head with nice and round exotic aromas. Clear amber colored body. Rich and long in mouth with fair concentration of round and aged hops. Pleasant with some orange fruit dessert after a heavy meal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MelvinKalksma (1301) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2017

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, orange, pine, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Clear/hazy golden/amber beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, orange and pine; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Obviously filtered and thus way more clear than it could bave been. Still a lot of yeast, thankfully, making him very sweet with loads of marmelade. Great bitter hops at the finish as well. Great tasty beer overall.

Aroma: pine, resin, licorice (not sure), bread, dry fruits (a bit), and a blackberry nose (strong but very volatile) and aftertaste (mild) ; Appearance: clear copper, small head ; very bitter, light sweetness. I need to taste it again, to assess it better.

Overly grainy, bitter harsh bitterness with little fruit character,... Grainy body, orange peel. Okay but hoped for more.

KoNrRiI (1366) - rhus, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2017

0.33 bottle.
Nice, long-lasting head. Aroma, apart from the obvious piney and citric scents, has something chocolaty in it, not sure how much of that chocolate is intended and how much is coincidental. Full body, average carbonation, creamy texture. Taste is piney, floral, citric, actually kind of sweet. A decent brew.

tricksta_p (4023) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2017
Bottle from Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Aroma is intense fruity hops, tropical fruits, grapefruit, orange, malt, with a slight touch of alcohol. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with a potent bitter and fairly dry finish. Some booze. Body is medium. Nice juicy hop bomb, great aroma, flavour could be a bit smoother, finishes a bit harsh.
