3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hoppy aroma of citrus and some tropical fruits. Flavour is citrus, grapefruit, grassy hops, with some bitterness in the aftertaste. A bit watery on the palate, as should be expected (and accepted!) for a 3.7% beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours in light hazy yellow body with high frosty head. Aroma has medium fruity character, mostly grassy citrus. Little bit of DMS in the background, but somehow hidden by the fruitiness. Taste has high grassy bitterness with light fruity sweetness, light harsh after taste. Body is full, high carbonation, pretty full for such a low alcohol content.

330ml bottle. Pale straw color. Medium size, bubbly head, stays. Yeast, malts, faint sour, dried apple in aroma. No flavor stands our. Quite thin body. Simple brew. Maybe too simple.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Borefts 2013. A light cloudy pale kinda almost dishwater colored yellow thing this with a nice lacing blond head. Smells fresh hoppy and really fruity! Almost a soft brett touch to it, and I love the hop combo. Galaxy? Citra? Really citrus infused and impressive on the nose. Strong and really sharp bitterness. The thing another this it manages to do it without being to mouthdrying. It’s really light oily in the mouth almost like mineral water and it has a soft to average prickling carbonation level. Lots of watered down citrus in the taste also. Hits of mandarins and hay. A high quenching potential this has. 27.09.2013

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled from biernavigatie, BB 30 07 14, large sample. Initially clear golden color, huge frothy slight off-white head. Aroma of citrus, peach, plum, slight flowery. Taste is very bitter, not much residual sugar left, bit watery ofcourse. Plums really come forward. Apparently citra and summer hops according to their website. Seems to me summer hops really have a presence here then, as I dont get a lot of citra except in flavor a bit. Bit too high on carbonation, as seems to happen more often with this brewery. For 3.7% it has quite some flavor, but is also a bit harsh.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some tropical - berry fruitiness, some citrus hoppyness. Body light - medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light tropical fruitiness, light - some citrus hoppyness. Finish is short to average, malty and dryish, some piney - light citrus hoppyness. Really nice aroma, but flavor is thin (well it is 3,7%). Aroma/flavor not in balance. I don’t get what’s the idea here.

330ml (Vastarinnen Kiiski, Helsinki, Kalakierros 2014)
Straw coloured, huge ice cream float head. Lovely fruity citrussy aroma, some heavier hops later. Slightly watery palate, carbonation crisp, and bite from noble hops accentuates that. Some perfumey aspects later, anna gets coconut. Finish a little lemonadey, from citrus hops, carbonation, and wateriness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
4 ounce draft at ChurchKey poured into a tasting snifter. Pours a slighty hazy shiny yellow with off-white head. Aromas of floral notes, citrus fruit and peel. Tasting notes of citrus and floral notes. Light body with a dry finish. Medium carbonation. Not bad, could be a decent summer beer.
