3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, batch RPCC13.01 BB 05.May.2014, large sample. Clear amber color, medium frothy off-white head. Aroma of rye, flowery, floral, bit citrus, bit soapy, lavender-like, tangerine. Bit sweet in taste, bit bitter, again quite fruity of tangerine. Quite dry it seems and the sweetness seems to come mostly from the fruity notes. The rye is a bit harsh grainy. Ok stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very high & stable amberish head over clear copper-orange beer; shards of lace. Fruity C-hops (rosewater, lychee, grapefruit) and a clear hint at ureum, and even just a tad cheesy. Some cardboard, mainly from the head. Piney, resiny hops, outspoken bitter and a bit harsh. Fruitiness all but gone in the mouth. There’s a faint mineral, nearly salty touch. Oilyness in the MF clearly hopresin-related. Medium bodied, rather low carbonation. Resin overload. I wonder where the unnaturally stable head comes from... certainly not from continiously dissolving CO˛...

Bottled, 33cl full sample. The aroma has toffee, oranges, some pine. Cloudy, orange-brown coloured beer with a medium, off-white head.
