So etwas gefällt mir. Schön fruchtig und dabei dennoch mit einem herben Charakter gesegnet. Hier und da schlägt zudem der Hopfen zu und drängt die Mandarinen ein klein wenig zurück. Feines Piwo.

Bottle from trade with bartlebier - many thanks! The beer has got a deep amber-golden colour with an low steady head and medium body. Wonderful aroma of fresh hops and spruce combined with citrus fruits. Taste of hops, pine, spruce, mandarinas, peaches, herbs and citrus fruits. Mild dry and bitter finish. Very quaffable and highly enjoyable.

Clear orange beer, thick creamy yellowish head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: sweet, bit sugary, floral hops, ripe summer fruits, little piny, resinous touch, strawberry jam, sweet caramel malts. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: very sweet start, citrus, malty, bitter hops, bit resinous, some orange peel. Aftertaste: malty, bitter touch, nice fruitiness, sweet peaches, pineapple. This is pretty well done!

Orange and cloudy with a medium, white and stable head. Unobtrusive aroma of hops and fruits. Its flavour is much more intensive: Notes of vanilla coupled with fruits (mango, papaya, peach, orange) - very nice and tasty. Distinct bitterness and a full body.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle [imagined to be the highlight of a locals for locals-trade with bartlebier - thank you very much again, FlemishRAtebeeriaNKingpin]. Slightly cloudy, orangey golden colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Piney and citrusy hoppy aroma with notes of grapefruit, passion fruit, orange, tangerine, pineapple, peach, even some liquorice, caramel malty basis with orange biscuit touch. Taste is piney and bitter hoppy, notes of grapefruit and orange, orange zest, minimally astringent, moderately sweet malty background. Indistinguishable from some of the best rated West Coast American IPAs known to me (maybe exempt from minor deficiencies concerning outwardness), and exactly for that reason too clean, adjusted and sophisticated for my personal taste, like e.g. Bear Republic’s ’Racer 5’. Nevertheless an applaudable piece of craftsmanship rarely to be found in Germany.
