3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from bottle @ the some people are tired tasting (after borefts 2013 day 1). Clear dark orange color, medium sized quickly diminishing off - white head that leaves fair to good lacing. Aroma is malts, hops, a bit sweetish. Taste malts, hops, some sweetness, pretty bitter. Once youíve swallowed you get a nice mix of malts, hops and bitter but before that it seems off balance somehow. Wonder how this tastes fresh / straight from the origin.
