Nice to try unusual hop varieties. This one was quite lemony. Nicely constructed beer with good overall balance of taste-aroma-bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, from trade with Papsoe. A finger-thick, off-white head sits on top of a clear, golden body. Mostly citrusy and piney aroma, with some maltyness underneath. Quite a lot of pink grapefruit, both in the aroma and flavor. Soft and smooth on the palate, full-bodied and semi-sweet. Quite bitter flavor, with a pleasant maltyness underneath. Lasting finish with pink grapefruit and a nice bitterness. A pleasant one. 121017

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Deep golden, bit unclear, large off-white and stable fluffy head, fruity flowery nose, pears and tangerines detectable; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied, quite soft; dry - but still a bit sweetish - fruity-hoppy finish. Not bad at all, but the fruitiness is really a bit strange…
