3.75/5 rDev +1.4%
A-hazy gold color with a very large white head that fades slow
S-malt, orange, and hops
T-orange and malt are the first thing I tasted, then came a hop bitterness that turns back into a orange finish
M-high carbonation and light body
O-this beer was not overpowering and it had a good balance of malt, citrus and hops. My only complaint was the price of $5.50 for a 12oz bottle

Got this from the De Molen beer shop in Bodegraven.
From a bottle into a snifter
Best before 30 March 2014
APPEARANCE: Another Brewfist foamer upon opening. Pours a three finger, medium looking, white head with good retention. Clear gamboge orange with no carbonation evident. Head slowly fades to a full foam cap and some foamy lacing clings to the glass. A half wisp remains leaving some decent lacing down the glass. Not bad, but they need to fix this foaming issue.
SMELL: Bread, grainy malts, light caramel, as well as s decent amount of floral and grassy hops on the nose. Still a bit too grainy, but better than Burocracy.
TASTE: Some grainy bread and caramel up front, then lots of floral hops and grassy flavors at the swallow. Bold and relentless finish is bitter, spicy from the yeast, with lots of grassy hops as well. Better than Burocracy, but still not my type of flavor profile. Too grainy and spicy for the style.
PALATE: Better, but not good. Thinner and lighter on the palate with higher levels of carbonation. Slightly airy, goes down okay and finishes dry. Some bitterness lingers. Still too thin and foamy for the style.
OVERALL: These guys just can't seem to get it right. Slightly better than Burocracy, but that isn't saying much at all. Too grainy, thin and foamy for the style. Not worth the calories. Pass on this and try anything else.

3.66/5 rDev -1.1%
A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color and has some orange hues along with a light amount of visible carbonation and lots of fine particles visible floating in suspension. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down, leaving a collar of large bubbles around the edge of the glass and delicate lacing covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of citrusy hops are present in the nose along with notes of herbal hops and hints of caramel malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, with flavors of citrusy hops—grapefruit stand out in particular—along with a light to moderate amount of associated bitterness and muted notes of caramel malts. The bitterness persists through the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer seemed like it might have originally had a lot of dynamic aromas and flavors from the hops but these got muted in its trip across the Atlantic.

Poured from a 33 cl bottle into a nonic.
A: Slightly hazy, golden hue. Pours a slight, bubbly white head. Slight lacing.
S: Pine resin, and honey.
T: Hoppy and bitter. Not much else.
M: Crisp with something of a papery finish.
D: Sipping experience.
Atmosphere is okay. Nose much of a head or lacing. Really sweet piny nose. Bitter hop. Overall, this is an okay quaff.
