From tap at Erwin's birthday party in Ghent, cheers! Totem's - unsurprisingly - very idiosyncratic interpretation of a Radler, with mandarin juice apparently... Medium sized, opening, egg-white, moussy head, hazy peach to pale orangey blonde robe. Aroma of indeed mandarin and mandarin peel, lemon blossom, soggy white bread, mango cubes, pineapple, granadilla, cheese crust. Sweetish onset but not in a cloying,way, refreshing with a sourish edge, medium carbo, supple mouthfeel not at all revealing its very low strength; still evidently thinnish, white bready body, fresh mandarin juice-like sweetness lingering amidst an aromatic, blossomy, citrus peel- and mango-like hoppiness. One to drink all night - which is more or less what I did. Almost feels like an ironic statement against the wave of industrial Radlers that have mysteriously gained so much popularity recently in both the Netherlands and Belgium. Needs more exposure and ratings - because this clearly belongs in the top-50 of Radlers on this site...

(Thank you!) Sampled draft @ Billie's Craft Beer Fest 2017. Very hazy golden, creamy white. Nose is bit doughy, mandarin but more in a hoppy fashion almost. Bit too watery for me body wise but great taste fruity mandarin in more hoppy fashion, doughy fashion, great fruity IPA for proper sessions.

3/XII/17 - on tap @ Billies Craft Beer Festival - BB: n/a (2017-2144) Thanks to the Belgian, Dutch and German ratebeerians for sharing today's beers!

Pretty cloudy pale yellow beer, small creamy white head, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: super fruity, passion fruit, pineapple, citrus, very nice! MF: soft carbon, medium to light body. Taste: lots of citrus, grapefruit, bit lemony, malty touch, some mandarins, orange peel. Aftertaste: little watery, nice bitterness, citrus, nice fruity notes, mandarins, lovely beer!
