yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
Bottle. A dense, creamy, off-white head of two-fingers size forms over a clear golden body. Some floaties, and nice curtains. The aroma is pretty weak, with citrusy hops and a touch of grass and pine cones. The flavor has some bitterness, but not enough I think. Grass, pine cones, pineapple and some citrus notes. Canned fruits. Malts as well. Medium to full body with too much carbonation. Short hoppy finish. Not bad, but far from interesting. 140418

Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, orange and melon. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter. Body is light, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

JonMoore (1840) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle - incredibly lively, huge 4 inch head even after very careful pouring. Visibly highly carbonated. Hazy gold with white head, prone to lacing. Big citrus hoppy aroma, oranges, peaches. Same for the taste, plus malts, candy, tropical fruit. Nice texture. Impressive.

Golden-amber color, good white head. Aroma of white wine, apples and lychee. Light to medium-bodied. Crisp, zesty, lots of green apple, a bit tartish (like apple tart) finish. Refreshing, vinho verde/cider-like.

MichaelAwesome (3558) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. And I have to admit that I regret it. Wonderful hoopy nose with some peaches in the start. Continuing with ripe fruits and even more peaches. High drinkability, slightly sweetish moments and a dry end. But those hippy peaches are going to split you in two halves. Wonderful.

McTapps (3558) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2013
Pours out of the bottle in a cloudy golden-orange colour with low unsteady head and medium body. Aroma of hops and fruit salad. Taste of mild hops, citrus, leaves, basement, acid and herbs. Dry-bitter finish. Easy and nice to drink but a little bit too boring and dusty.
