Pours a hazy dark orange with a nice pale yellow head and good lacing. Big aroma of mango, orange zest, and a little floral. Taste is citrus, pine, mango, grass, and good maltiness comes through. Really nice bitterness. This is very good.

Dark reddish shine, large head. Aroma quite flowery with some grainy bitter hops. Taste has lots of flower hops, grains, oats and bitter finish. A bit watery at te end. Might also be because the bottle was already a half year overdue. Still quite nice though.

Ha un colore aranciato carico, leggermente velata, con un cappello di schiuma non troppo ampio, ma compatto e duraturo.Al palato è dolce, corposa e consistente, controbilanciata dall’abbondante amaro del luppolo che non tarda a farsi sentire.

Pours a hazy brown with a large tan head, aroma of heavy caramel, treacle with the promise of piney citris tones. Initial sweet caramel flavour, burnt toast makes an appearance with a rather unbalanced bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper red colour beer with a weak head and a transparent almost luminescent appearance. No carbonation.
The smell is bitter sweet lichees or strawberries mixed with grapefruits, with some saltiness.
The taste is mainly bitter with a subtle refreshing sweetness. Very dry and bitter in the finish which evolves into a flowery, hayish bitterness. Like biting into a grapefruit but then without the sickening acidness. Well balanced delicious beer. Somewhat flat in the sense of variety.

Pours a deep amber, quickly dissipating head; nose of caramel, pineapple, mango on the turn, strawberry; thick mouthfeel, lasting bitterness poised perfectly with sticky, glucose malts, IBUs well masked. A promising introduction to the style, but how couldn’t it be a little misrepresentative
