Small shortlasting head. Aroma is fresh fruity, lemon, leafs, newly cut lawn, fresh hops, hay, citrus peel. Taste is fresh hoppy, newly cut lawn, hops, leafs, sap, bark, hay, hints of pine needles. Medium to longlasting bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Very nice and easy drinking.
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Funny thing, today at the Eindhoven Beerfestival the lads of De Rooie Dop told me that the keg was a bit old and let me taste a bit from that keg. It tasted more planty and dusty. They told me the bottles atthe store, they brought along, were only 3 weeks old. So to taste this beer fresh, I got a bottle right away. And hell yeah this one is nothing close to planty and dusty but fruity and bitter! Very good!
Medium sized vast and slowly changing, sticky creamy foamy head on top of a hazy to murky orange colored beer.
Aromas of load of hop fruits: peach, apricot, mango, pine apple, some grapefruit, hop flowers, herbs, fruity herbs, tea herbs, some cloves, fruity malts and crispy!
Flavours of hops, herbs, cloves, mango, peach, apricot, grapefruit, bitter, yeast, some leaves, fruity floral tones, light malty tone and some fruity herbs that come from the fruity hops and yeast. Lovely fruity and bitter!
Aftertaste is bitter with lot of (bitter) gruits, herbs, some porridge malts and creamy hay.
Low carbo, soft creamy mouthfeel, medium to fuller bodied and a creamy texture.
Marvelous beer! Whether they come from The Netherlands or not, this is better than the Laugar Hop Shock! SinH4 (6554) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 17, 2015
Hazy orange color with huge white head. Initial smell is malts, biscuit, caramel, toffee and a bit of citrusy hops. Taste is resinous, hoppy, fruity, biscuity malts, dry and spicy. Carbonation is good. Dry and spicy finish. At first I found the malts a bit weird, but it gets better and better with every sip. Sessionable, indeed!

A nice and classy apa with a decent hoppy start and some grass, citrus in the Aroma. Easy to drink with some bittersweet moments. Quaffy all the way without being rocket science. reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2014
330ml bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a huge white head with good retention and leaving some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and grains with some piney notes. Taste is a citrus and pine hop bitterness with some spicy notes and a grainy malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with generous carbonation. A very well done session ale with lots of flavor and worth checking out.

Bottle @ home. Hazy yellow to orange with a medium to big white head. Smells quite nice! Fruity, fresh, hoppy, floral.. Lovely. Tastes hoppy, fresh, some pine, grapefruit and lovely bitter. Great brew! Medium body (even though it?s only 4.9%), great carbo. It could’ve been a bit more crisp.. That would make it evwn nwtter for me, but I have no idea how that should be achieved. erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2013
Misty orange body, large stable head. Significant hop aroma, classic yet rich enough to give a modern appeal. Oranges and light malts, summery. Quite bitter though, good, but dry, sour even. Not sessionable because if lack if taste, but because of its dry character. Turned out well and interesting. (Tilburg Beer Festival) JulienHuxley (5978) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 27, 2013
Bottle from Bierkoning, bottled 19/09/13. Nice clear orangey gold pour with really lacy foamy white head. Aroma of spicy citrusy hops, you can really pick up the blend of saaz and Citra not much malt aroma coming through except maybe a hint of caramel. Taste is bitter,a tad overly so, the age or the caramel malt have made the flavors just a bit harsh. Quite tasty overall though, good refreshing palate. Would love to try this on tap.

Bottle 330 ml, poured into a tulip at home. ABV 4.9%
Dark golden orange colour on the body, very clear, with good activity in it. Huge and thick head, slighty off white in colour, with very good retention. Heavy lacing left on the glass.
Aroma of citrus fruits, grapefruit, orange peel, but also pine, fresh cut grass, light tropical fruits, really great use of aromatic hops.
Taste is bitter from the very first sip, becoming even more bitter until it reaches its climax on the aftertaste. Hops, citrus fruits, pine, lemon zest, lime leaves.
Medium thin body, good carbonation with a bite on the tongue. Quite dry on the palate.
Overall a very good beer, very tasty and with such a low alcohol level. Garrold (5814) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle from Bier Huis, Ossett. 18th May. Very cloudy, murky brown. Thin, white head. I’ll have to re-rate this. I’d had a long day on the ale. Got home and then my eyes got bigger than my belly. Should have gone to bed! I think it was juicy, fruity and bitter. I don’t really know...
