3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Dirk 3 in Hardinxveld. The beer is dark amber colored and has a nice large and stable white head, with livingly CO2.
The aroma is hoppy and malty and has some nice notes of fruits (strawberries, peaches and apple), but also hints of grains.
The taste is full and sweet with notes of ripe fruits and changes into a strong malt taste with tones of Belgian yeast. Also clearly noticable is the alcohol, but luckily not too much.
The finish is light bitter and hoppy, but also a little dry.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Ambar, mucho sedimento flotando, y escasa espuma. Feo aspecto. Aroma alcohólico. En boca, alcohol claro. Alcohol predominante. Malta y lúpulo más o menos en equilibrio, pero sobrepasados por el alcohol.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample from a 33cl bottle (26 IX 2015), shared with De Meetjeslandse Bierproevers. This amber coloured strong ale comes with a firm white head. The aromas make one think of hay, coming from the malts. Yet within the flavour, the yeast is dominant. It has some cellar and earth, dirt and dust: The typical ’t IJ aroma. Actually not that pleasant nor appealing to me. The sweetness thrives in the taste, together with a strong yeast sensation and warming alcohol.
