Gushing to huge brownish head; orange-amber beer. Very fruity nose, citrus-orange, Mandarine Napoleon, spicey too. Taste is spicey, as nutmeg and swet spices: cardemom, maybe cinnamon. Yet main flavour is sweet, liquorice like and citrussy. Rather thin mouthfeel for such a laden beer. Too sweet for my tooth. For the amateurs of liqueur-like beers.

Cloudy dark golden beer. Large slowly diminishing 1cm head of white and lasting foam. Yeasty, estery, flowery and slightly citrusy aromas. Mildly toasted malts beginnings quickly switch toward flowery and lemony hops. Fair supporting body all through. Quite simple in its maltiness, not developing too much flavours (surprising feature for De Hemel!), but comfortable and smooth. Christian (13670) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2008
UPDATED: APR 11, 2012 Re-rate on tap at Carlsens Kvarter, April 2012. Hazy orange with a lasting white head. Aroma of yeast, herbs, orange peel and sugar. Sweetish flavour with strong orange peel notes, along with yeasty character and sugar HenrikSoegaard (14166) - Randers, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2008
