UPDATED: MAR 3, 2015
Old rating. 0,33l. Best before 09/2010. Orange-trüb im Glas. Der Antrunk ist mild-säuerlich. Zum Hauptteil wird die milde Säuerlichkeit deutlicher, leicht herb-hopfig, frisch-grasig. Der Nachgeschmack ist hefig, leicht herb, angenehm sauer mit leicht mild-fruchtiger Nore.
Sehr interessant, lecker, süffig, toll!

4oz pour at Max’s Rare and Obscure Beer Week Part 4. Pours a hazy, burnt orange with a thin, creamy white head. Nose is orangey, light candy, malty, a little perfume. Flavor is grassy, a little medicinal, malty, yeasty. Obviously a Euro IPA. Medium bodied with a sweet finish.

Ernest (7695) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2005
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread/grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, orange), lightly yeasty (cobwebs, mold), with notes of peach, straw. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Could use a more richness and aromatic allure, but for what it offers, it’s very pleasant and very drinkable. Like the Xxtra saison, it’s only fault is in what it lacks.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, Ralph, DougShoemaker & mds -- courtesy of DougShoemaker. Pours a hazy dark orange with a large lasting fluffy white head. Aroma of grain, yeast, spices and light grassy hops. Flavour of grain, yeast, some fruit and a mild hop bitterness. Not a favourite but it’s decent.
