The beer starts with a reaction-speed-test. Wanna save your laptop? better act fast. Think NA beers are never gushers? Guess again. After doing a quick save, I was able to enter the beer in the glass, where it gave a hazed blonde, soapy big foam that fades fast. Scent is werid. Metallic? Mild hoppy fruityness, terpentine, wood oil. Only as it warms up, it shows it chlorophenolic base (yumyum!) These are scents I expect when I go to a shop like Gamma, not in a beer :/
Taste is sharp, chlorophenolic, tad sweet, mild bitterness. Terpentine, wood oil.Pretty bad, even for a NA this is not worth drinking. Quite possibly the actual worst NA i've encountered in terms of off-flavors so far. Maybe outclassed by how much I hate it with just... bad beers (like Jupiler NA ) but they even deliver better actual quality than this one. There's a mild 'good' base in here - it's just overpowered by all the negative stuff going on. Hopefully, this is just a bad batch rather than a beer they actually keep producing like this

0.33 l can from 'OnderNulPuntVijf', best before August 2021. Slightly hazy, orangeish amber with a large, fluffy, quickly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, gently fruity-resiny and slightly metallic aroma of orange, mango, rubber and iron. Slightly sweet, moderately bitter, gently fruity-floral and rather metallic taste of rubber, iron, orange and mango, followed by a short, quite bitter, nasty, metallic and dry finish. Thin body, gently effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Extremely unpleasant due to an over-whelming metallic, rubber-like taste. Really bad.

Weer zo'n rare plastic geur wat je soms hebt bij hoppige NA bieren. Yak

33cl Blik van OnderNulPuntVijf. Goudgeel, dunne witte kraag. Aroma van rubber, mislukte vergisting, wat citrus hop. Smaak volgt, vrijwel ondrinkbaar. Flashbacks naar 1 van mijn eerste thuisbrouwsels.
