2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle. Bbe 03/2016. Pours deep golden with a thick white head. Gusher warning. Floral, hoppy, citrusy aroma. spicy notes. Plastic first in flavor, later mostly malts and citrus. Otherwise ok but so high carbonation that it makes it hard to drink.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dorato carico piuttosto torbido e poco filtrata , schiuma estremamente generosa e frizzante. Interessante aroma di agrumi. Al palato i sapori sono quasi distrutti da una carbonazione elevatissima, del tutto esagerata. Molto leggera. Peccato che la frizzantezza estrema rovini ogni possibilità di godersela.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Hazy light amber liquid with huge off-white head. Aroma of citrus, fresh hops, lemon pledge, grain, caramel and fruity yeast esters. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of grain, citrus, light mango and bread. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Decent for the ABV. Not super refined though.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Slightly golden color. Medium size, bubbly white head, somewhat holds. White caramel, rose pepper, herbal hops in aroma. Wheaty, saison yeast, herbal, straw, grainy taste. Burnt plastic in burps. Quite high carbonation. Reminds me more of a saison than pale ale.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
Pleasant wheaty aroma, some banana strings, quite saisony, a bit of rose pepper. Slightly hazy straw. Lightish palate, carbonation quite high, almost fizzy. Light fruity citrussy taste, a touch wheaty, but also quite soapy. For a weak beer quite characterful, but still a bit to watery, adn definitely too fizzy. I can taste the carbonic acid in the finish alongside the biting lemony hops. Tweak this to be a saison, and I might like it - it’s closer to that than to IPA.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On Tap. Hazy blonde. Persistent fine foam. Presented as a Session IPA but there’s no hop flavor. Only a final bitterness and a little bit astringent. Forgettable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Hazy golden colour with average to huge, frothy, osteoporosing, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity, slightly floral and minimally soapy, hoppy aroma, sweet-ish caramel malty background with a grainy touch, hints of gooseberry and unripe peach, nectarine. Taste is minimally sweet caramel malty, minimally grainy, mild bitter hoppy overtones with a floral touch, aformentioned fruity hints anew; no abatement of intensity of flavours in the finish.
