Bottle at the courtesy of Rune. Medium high creamy off-white lasting head. Well, would have expected the head to be dark brown. It is actually black. Sour hoppy soapy aroma. Heavily carbonated sour hoppy veneous berries flavor with a high hops bitterness. Long bitter sour finish. Cannot remember having tested anything like this before.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Flaske fra Polet, hjemme: forventningene stiger i takt med skummet som tårner seg opp og velduften stiger mot de olfaktoriske sentre. Allerede første, forsiktige munnfull forteller at dette er noe helt spesielt, en quadrupel med herlig vinøse overtoner som dysser ned sødmen. Opplevelsen crescenderer for hver munnfull. Et rikt, dynamisk og harmonisk ensemble i stjerneklasse. Bravissimo!
