3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Many thanks to Gerhard for a 330m bottle of this one.Unclear apricot coloured body topped by a solid white head that laced well down the glassware. Fresh fruity aroma alongside a strong note of leafy hops. Fresh tropical fruity taste followed by a well rounded, bittersweet finish of resinous hops. Fine bodied. Tasty and refreshing (Grand tasting at the balcony, Fässla, Bamberg 12.10.2014).

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from Bierzwerg. Cloudy amber-copper, creamy off-white head. Lovely aroma of tropcial fruit. Full-bodied, pleasantly malty and sweet to complement the immense hop flavours: bitter, resiny,with loads of fruit. Delicious and perfectly balanced beer with a smooth and velvety palate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thick, dense head, colour of coffeemeilk; hazy redbrown-amber beer. Rich, meaty nose, lactic (not sourish), ASAFŒTIDA (must be the first beer with THAT particular aroma), cheesy hops. Oily flavour, banana, caramel, with just a bitterish roundoff. Citrus, cakey, but oily and again oriental, the asafœtida returning in the aftertaste. Quite well-bodied, slick to oily, well-carbonated. Smells for all the world (at least to me) as a fresh papadum, tastes as a bitter oriental fry... Not my cup of India tea...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. BB 10/06/2014. From Erzengel. Vielen Dank!
Cloudy reddish amber colour with a hu-u-u-u-uge foamy off-white head.
Hoppy aroma with rosehip, fruits, flowers, biscuit, sweetness, malt and mild yeast. Not much bitterness. The flavour is a bit more bitter but also quite a lot sweeter. Sweet fruity and floral hops, sweet maltiness, mild yeast and a note of alcohol in the flavour. Very soft carbonation. The empty bottle weighs a ton.
