3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 0,5 l. Yellowy beige with offish white head. Nose is insanely nice, fresh hops, grass, flowers, perfume. Flavor has a lot of hops, perfumy soapy flowery hops with a twist of grass and some gummy bear juiciness. Not much malts to compensate, alcohol very hidden. It’s all about hops and this is an extreme beer. Quite a treat, but not perfect. And nothing christmasy about this really, which is good.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 Bottle, from trade with Papsoe. It’s a hazy, orange-golden beer with a dense, finger-thick beige head. Oranges, peaches and a sweetish hint in the aroma. The flavor has a sweet, malty backbone, and peachy, orangey and piney hops to support it. Full-bodied. The finish has a nice bitterness, and resiny and fruity flavors. Except for the orange flavor and aroma there’s not much Christmasy with this one, but it’s a really good one. 090619
