3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A huge, white head forms over a clear body turning hazy as the head shrinks and leaves room for more beer in the glass. Golden in color, with good carbonation, and some cute curtains forms as the beer is drunk. The aroma is mostly on the hoppy side, grass, pine cones and some spiced hints. Pepper maybe. Some almost sourish farmyard hints in the far back. Itís quite bitter on the palate, medium bodied and more or less bone dry. A bit too heavy on the carbonation, but what the heck... Orange notes, some grass, pine cones and spice hints. Lemon peel and some farmyard hints too. Lasting bitter finish with the hoppy flavors doing most of the work. Overall, a beer I really like. Perhaps a bit boring in the aroma, but itís definitely nice and complex. Also, the head is a pain, but only if youíre in a rush. 130329

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from BVS. Massive gusher! It pours cloudy amber with a massive yellow-white head. The nose is earthy, brett, wood, tanginess, zesty orange, tangerine and orange squash. The taste is earth, watery, metal, straw, spice, brett and mouldy wood with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and lively carbonation. Tastes infected. Not great....

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ridiculous head is bout 9/10 of what I have in my glass. Have to w8 a while...sigh..10min...That head breaks into big soapy bubbles that leave staining lacing. Canít say it looks nice and this waiting is also ruining lot. Bitter hoppy aroma, grapefruit, pineapple, tropical fruityness, juniper, malting under this, bitter but fruity sweetness balances otherwise quite dry feel, medium to light body and light bitter feel, bitter fruity finish. Easy to drink light fresh and crispy beer for those hot summer nights.

Lots of foam, peachy aroma, very inviting.
Citrus flavour, apricots. Dry finish, a hint of sourness. Very pleasant for a low ABV.
