Grzesiek79 (2961) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 21, 2014
Dobre tresciwe i przede wszystkim cudownie pachnace swiezutkimi rozowymi grejfrutami. Piana srednia ale ladnie oblepiajaca szklo. Spora dawka chmieli, chyba mojego ulubionego wyczulem nelsona, wszystko to slodowe i pyszne. niesamowicie tresciwe, piwo sprawia wrazenie lekko ciezkiego. Degustacyjne piwo o kolorze ciemnej przykurzonej pomaranczy.

omhper (18949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 16, 2014
Keg at Slowbeer, Melbourne, Victoria. Cloudy pale amber, small head. Bready grapefruit aroma. Mid sweet with full body and clean, rounded mouthfeel. Caramelly malt, bread and grapefruit, then a smashingly bitter finish. Much more bitterness than aroma.

@ Ölbutikken 8/2-2014. Flaska från Ölbutikken, Köpenhamn. Mycket trevlig doft, tall, grape, maltig, karamell, ganska humlig, medelfyllig, bra beska. Lång besk avslutning.

neverleaveopen (138) - GERMANY - FEB 12, 2014
what a beer. slightly hazy amber with a fine head. amazing aroma of dominant hop notes (citrus, peach, grass, floral) and slowly unfolding layer of caramel and roast notes. well-balanced, very pleasant bitterness. no hint of alcohol in the aftertaste. brilliant, but a bit pricey.
