3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Molto. Muddy orange, frothy white top. Banana and citrus hops. Mellow enough in the mouth, but sharp, bitter finish kinda spoiled the nice hop action. Not quite as good as I was expecting, but still quite nice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Banana hop on the nose - slightly cloying and not boding brilliantly. Pours muddy amber with a fluffy head. Flavour is gooseberry hop with lychee and honey but slightly spoiled by an over-carbed mouthfeel and an out of balance astringency in the finish. Ok, but not great.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured out a hazy amber with a thick tan head that never fades. Honey, English malts - plenty of them, orange, ack ... stupid Leffe glass - why does this glass suck so much? Tasty citrus bitterness with a very solid warm toasty malt base, fruit starts with a champagne grape note and quickly gets steamrolled by a sharp, long lasting bitterness, grapefruit, orange. Long bitterness. Interesting aftertaste that I won’t describe because I am being watched....

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy reddish, amber. Almost like a Weißen with some syrup added. Little head, but it stares at you somehow.
Nose is modest, dry grass, malted sweetness.
Taste is full with sorachi taking the forefront. Fruitiness, by stone fruits and a strange hint of strawberry. Bone dry hoppy finish.
Distinctive and original, but very filling. The lingering sweetness does not invite another order though.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 36cl. It’s almost clear in the glass, dark golden in color and topped by a big off-white head leaving lacings. Caramel maltyness, chewing gum and some resin on the nose. It’s a bit sweet on the palate, with a pleasant bitterness level, and some citrus peel. Full-bodied, dryish and nicely carbonated. Lasting bitterness in the finish. I guess this one suffers a bit from the long journey, but it’s a nice beer anyway. 120302
