3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy dark copper body, huge fluffy head, good lacing. Hoppy, fruity aroma - simple, and not so pleasant. Yeast shines through strongly with a spicy note (cardamom?). Fruity yet musky taste, some liqourice in the finish along with strong Noble-hoppiness. Odd balance. Sharp carb. Not a bad beer..

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of citrus, hops and dusty yeast. Hazy, yellow coloured with a huge, off-white head. Only bubbles in my glass at first... Taste is quite bitter, slightly sweet, hoppy, just a little floral and mostly citric. Quite a dry finish. Some medicine in the finish, is a bit weird. Overall okay brew.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (from Bitter Virtue). A little fruity yeast and lots of hops with multiple layers of earthy, musty and fresher herbal aromas. There is a little sweetness and the bitterness isn’t as much as you would expect from the hop flavours. This leaves the beer slightly sticky and cloying with a lasting musty feel. Could be better.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle (7,1% abv). A very livlely beer, the foam is almost unstoppable on its way through the bottleneck...
Pours hazy dark golden with a nice fluffy and lasting white head. Predominant yeast aroma, sweetish fruits and mild bittering hops in the background. Taste is lightly sweet and quite neutral. Modest fruit- and malt-sweetness, yeasty with an earthy, almost resiny hop presence. Light to medium body. Dry and quite astringent finish. Quite good, quite unusual.

Bottled. Hazy golden with a gigantic, lively white head. Dryish and fresh hop aroma of grass, dust, orange-peels, minerals, pepper and alcohol. Dryish and warming flavour of orange-peels, black pepper, wet grass and alcohol. Full-bodied. Dryish, peppery and grassy finish of soil, orange-peels and metal. A hoppy surprise.
