3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a copper color with a touch of haze and a nice thick tan head. The smell is fruity, caramel, some spiciness and citrus. The taste is a nice blend of the caramel, fruit with melon, citrus and some spiciness ending dry and tickling the tongue. Thicker than I expected - medium with some oiliness and soft, elegant carbonation. It isn’t a hop forward beer but it is well balanced and elegant it the flavor blends and the palate.

33 cl bottle.
Pours dark orange color with a large head. Aroma is quite malty and nutty, some rye notes, resinous hops and sweetish fruits. Flavor gooseberries, caramel malts, some bread notes, citric fruits and resinous hops. Bitter malty palate, lingering bitter finish. A bit too malty and stuffy for my taste.
