COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kaapse Jaapie Een amberkleurig bier van 9,2% van het type Red Ale. Door het gebruik van veel Amerikaanse hop krijgt dit bier een zoet citrusaroma. Deze zoete aanzet (passievrucht) trekt daarna bitter weg. De bitterheid wordt bovendien mooi in balans gehouden door een lichte karamel smaak

Shark_Pants (757) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2017
330ml bottle BB 31 Oct 2018. Slightly hazy copper red with nice beige head. Big pine and resin aromas, along with some rockmelon, paw paw, toffee. The taste has big pine flavours, lots of caramel, some toasted bread, resin, marmalade - quite sweet, moderate bitterness. Medium bodied and drinks scarily much less than the big 9.4% ABV. Pretty good.

Red brown colour with lasting fluffy head. Aroma has lots of piney, resinous hop. A little bit of caramel too. Flavour is intense. Very bitter and sweet. Somewhat stewed and syrupy feeling.

Maris (1533) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2017
From a 330ml bottle on 9/7/2017 (ABV listed as 9.4%, IBU 77). Pours a clear dark golden with a biggish head. The nose has some caramel, fruit with some resinous notes at the back. Taste wise, it’s very sweet up front with lots of candied and ripe fruit (apricot and peach), followed by big resiny hops, against a light caramel background. The palate is a touch syrupy and the carbonation is moderate. A really big and very enjoyable red ale, with the only knock being a slight harshness in bitterness.

Cloudy dark amber appearance with long lasting white head. Malty, hoppy and citrus aroma. Taste of lime, grape, grass and exotic fruit.

jamaty (2192) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2017
Sin gas, sin espuma. Entre naranja y marrón, sucia. Fea ¿Defectuosa? Intenso aroma dulce y cítrico, no muy agradable. En boca es una especie de sirope con mezcla de tonos dulces algo empalagosos, notas cítricas y herbales. Contrapunto amargo. No me gusta.

MelvinKalksma (1581) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2017

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, orange, red fruit, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Hazy/turbid orange/dark orange beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium off-white/beige head.

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

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Always love those very malty and dry hopped ’Red Ales’. This one is quite soft however, especially for its abv. Great appearance and palate though.

Palme (4811) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 28, 2017
0.33l bottle. Not much of a head on this. A few thin bubbles floating in the top, but it’s definitely on the red side body vise! Plum red and after pouring the while bottle really on the cloudy side. Lots and lots of red berries, sticky toffee and a pretty hefty malt sweet aroma. Like it. Yeasty nuts and it smells like a well cellared barley wine this. Really intense and present aroma. It’s really boozy and strong this. Old reeds and a rush of yeast. Dry skin of plums and red apples. It has a thick and almost chewy texture in the mouth and it’s just below average on the prickling carbonation. Concentrated rose hips and it’s soapy bitter as well. Strong and a little over the top perhaps. Took a while to finish this one. 27.04.2017

Icedwarf (1690) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2017
Robijnrood bier met schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig, tamelijk zoet en fruitig met iets van thee, ananas en abrikoos. Erg goed.

3.5
hrabren (1281) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 23, 2017
0.33 l bottle from Pivoteka, Zagreb. Shared with Višnja 666 and Goran. Murky golden to amber, small off-white head. Malt & hop balance, dry fruit, fruity hops, caramel with herbs, licorice. Moderately bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, moderate hoppy finish. I drank this one to fast for the conclusion. I guess that’s a good thing.
