2.9/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5

A: Huge head at the pour, that settles to ca. 8mm, clear golden colour

S: a lot of alcohol; some hops with a hint of citrus

T: some sweet orange, slightly bitter, hoppy finish, and again a lot of alcohol

M: too thin for my taste, carbonation okay, too alcoholic

O: my first impression of the taste was pretty good, but it gets annoying pretty fast. The sweetness becomes too sweet, and the bitterness starts overpowering some pleasant flavours.

2.26/5  rDev -18.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 1 | overall: 2

Poured in a goblet. It gives a firm head, over an inch. It’s snow white and fluffy and diminishes very slowly.
Colour is light golden. There is a storm of carbonation raging in my glass.
The scent is rather estery. Flowers, a strong metallic element, alcohol, malt, pepper, raw meat.
Taste is very raw and unbalanced. Strong bitter (unripe oranges) and yeast taste. The alcohol messes around too. Far to metallic.
I would describe the aftertaste as eating metal. The background gives me strong yeast and alcohol. Bitter in the back of my throat.

Far from good. Andelot is not in line with my tastebuds.

Quiet a nice appearance with snowwhite head and golden beercolor; queit clear but litle haze there. Nose is bit of koreander, some sharp yeastsmell, alcohol and some malts. Clean but not much there.
As is taste; strongly alcoholic maltjuice with light bitterness and litle malts. Not much more to say about taste and same for moutfeel; high carbonisation makes this even into a more alcoholic waterdrink. Good brew if you want to get buzzed fast, but IMO not for drinking pleasure.
