3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Beer Temple. Pale blonde color, hazy. Large white rocky head. Aroma’s boast out of the glass: citrus, resin, herbal hops, very refreshing, acidic almost, with something funky retronasal (smoke? wood?). Flavor is very mild in comparison, grainy, lightly bitter. Body is thin. Medium bitter finish, more aroma than bitter from the hops. Slightly dry. Interesting, but a big difference between aroma & flavor.

An unusual find on tap in Amsterdam , but well worth it. Was nice and hazy with minimal head and had a heavy grapefruit flavour with a dry, bitter aftertaste.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle) Poured a hazy straw with a good white head. Lovely aroma - mainly citrus with hints of tropical fruit, particularly passionfruit. Medium body with excellent full carbonation. Great flavour with hops apparent from start to finish, but not dominated by bitterness, and the hop contribution evolves through the taste, with a gentle fruity contribution at the start moving to a decent bitter finish. At the start the lemony / tropical fruits of the aroma are present. the flavour develops some peppery spice and nice biscuity malt and then winds up with a long pleasant bitter finish. Overall a very nice beer that is all about the hops, without them overwhelming with bitterness. There’s an nice breadth of flavour in this refreshing beer.

A-- Poured a cloudy honey yellow color, with a fluffy bright white head that settled to a one finger in height. Pretty obvious lively carbonation and a bit of lacing on the sides of the glass. Good head retention to the beer.
S-- Sweet and spicy hops with a Belgian like biscuit malt smell. Has a fresh cut grass smell to this. Smells a lot like a NZ Sav Blanc. Grass smell becomes larger as it warms up.
T-- Spicy hops first and the biscuit malt does kick in. Very lively carbonation again in this. A lot of grassy tones to this with, some lemon as well.
M-- Lots of carbonation, already said that though. Very crisp and fresh tasting. Lot of lemon and fresh cut grass to this. Hop flavor is fairly reserved and does not hammer away at you like others in this style do. More of an acidic taste and feel. Just a bit of a pine feel at the very end, not big though.
D-- . Heavy grassy tones and this carries it well. Needs a bigger grapefruit presence though as the lemon does become enough after a bit. Malt character is quite interesting and a good touch.
