3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden, hazy, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty - lightly grainy and sweetish aroma, light caramel and floral fruitiness, light herbal hoppyness, faint alcohol. Body is medium to full, malty - lightly grainy and sweetish flavor, light caramel and fruitiness, light herbal hoppyness, light alcohol. Finish is average, malty - lightly grainy and sweetish, light caramel, light metal and light - some herbal hoppyness, some alcohol. Too sweet and too much alcohol considering the body. Quite one-dimensional/lacks character.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle from ArtigianBeer, served in a goblet glass. Golden orange, pretty hazy, with a nice and fluffy off-white head. Strange aroma, vanilla and nutty notes upfront, followed by slightly toasted malts, coconut and tropical fruits. Slightly soapy as well. Sweet and hoppy in the mouth, not exactly dry and crisp as I was hoping. Sugary malts, a hint of pine needles and coconut milk in the aftertaste. Soft carbonation, medium body and creamy texture. Almost going in the DIPA territory, as strange as that sounds. Not exactly refreshing, but the alchool is well hidden. Decent.
