Defreni (2327) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2012
Fad> Orange let diset ’l med et stort skumhoved. Dejlig duft af eksotisk frugt, mango. De New Zealandske humler skinner. Smagen er igen dejlig frisk. Den mangler m[ske lige en tand citrus til at balancere.

Brenhophead (524) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 29, 2012
500mL bottle. Pours deep amber with a small white head and an amazing sweet punch bowl fruit/caramel aroma. I get the no of a resinous pine in the flavour with a nice caramel backing. Very different to the regular hopwired.

On tap at BeerDeLuxe. Very long flavour. Aromas of grass, caramel, and smoke. Taste has a sweet start, with bitterness taking over for a long finish. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.
