3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Doft av söta äpplen. Lät tvålig smak åt dux-tvål, söta äpplen, honung med drag av bivax. Ganska torr, väldigt grumlig och mycket jästsmaker som är lite småunkna.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
33cl bottle. Light amber/orange with a medium white head. Nose : Orange and lemon lemonade like. Little hay and lightly caramelized malts. Sip : Creamy and oily, easy to drink. It has a little sweet beginning but it’s really brief. It develops a refreshing bitter taste and lasts. hay malts are well maried with hops. I’m really enjoying it. Extra points for a refreshing taste that goes well with this warm spring weather. I guess the taste changes, I drink different beer the winter and different at the summertime.
