3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big pressure. Big fluffy lasting head. Clowdy golden color. Big piny citrus hop aroma. Big hop taste and fine sparkle and smooth maltiness. Big body and firm but not over powering bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Botte @ VANØ Bergen’s Christmas Gathering 2012. Pours a hazy orange body with a big cloudy white head. Nose is citric peel, kiwi, straw, hints of red fruits and grapefruit. Taste is earthy leaves, citrus, straw and hints of green apples. Much more citrusy in the aroma than in flavor. Medium carbonation and body. OK, but not my favorite.

Nice top, like the color and the overall look, the taste is not really 100% what I like to sweet and not as hoppy and fresh as prefer..
I do enjoy it...

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - capped 750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium orange with a sticky white head that leaves a luxuriant coat of lacing. Aroma is more floral than spruce with a hint of yeast. Fresh flavor with some nice slight citrusy bittersweet notes, a hint of fruitiness - nectarines and pears, very light spiciness, reminiscent of grains of paradise. Thickish mouthfeel. Pretty solid.
