3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Kō-10. A more or less clear beer, dark golden in color and with a small off-white to beige head on top. The aroma is fruity and resiny, with a good dash of caramel sweetness. Sweet, caramel-like flavor with resins and some dried fruits. Full-bodied, almost sticky. A nice beer, but too sweet for my likings. Will definately try this one again in a non-festival setting. Rating: 6-4-6-4-12-3.3. 100506
Bottle. A dense, light beige head sits on top of a clear, amber colored body. The aroms is quite hoppy, with peaches and a generic tropical fruityness. Resins too. Itís lighlty warming on the palate, full-bodied and with a pleasant level of carbonation. Green pine cones, bitterness, grapefruit and sweetish maltyness in the flavor. Lasting bitterness in the end. A quite pleasant one, nothing more. 121109

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2012 Aroma: very intense & pleasant, fruits, lot of fruits (citrus and other), some caramel, a little floral; Appearance: amber, little hazy with small but very firm off-white head (very good lacing): Taste: light sweetness, very strong bitterness (grapefruitish), just a hint of alcohol; Palate: medium-to-full body, oily feel, rather soft carbonation, very long (I mean it), strongly bitter finish with alcoholic warmness;
Overall: great beer in every way, aroma is masterpiece, taste is incredibly good and the rest is at least great.
