At a tasting, thanks, huge bubly head, very hazy orange color, fruity, herbal, hoppy aroma with lots of yeasr, flavor of fruit, bread and candy, very sweet, light but just a touch coarse bitterness. Drinkable but quite boring.

(Draught at Butcher’s Tears, Amsterdam, 23 Aug 2014) Hazy amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with orange, apricots and bready malt. Malty, fruity taste with notes of apricots, citrus, dried fruit and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain malt sweetness. Fresh and tasty. Nice one.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Stas & Vova. Hazy deep golden with a huge white head, slightly soapy. Aroma of yeast, flowers and fruity and slightly soapy hops. Yeasty and hoppy flavor, soapy, floral and fruity, with a bitterish finish. Light to medium-bodied, over-carbonated.

jmgreenuk (4980) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head and plenty of broken lace. The aroma is grassy citrus. The flavour is moderate to light bitter, light sweet, with a fruity, grassy nettle hop palate and a short bitter finish. Light bodied with average carbonation. A little too fruity and not enough bitterness for me. I need to feel the hops to their job to make a beer really refreshing and this beer is just too light with no bitterness or spice.

Bottle. Golden color. Pours a huge head. Citrus, grass and tropical fruit in the aroma. Malty sweet, herbal hopbitter flavor. Citric, with lots of tropical fruit. Nice.

OK ale. Huge white head pleasant carbonation hazy dark orange colour. Flavor is grapefruit, citrussy notes, dry grass and bitter hops. The finish is very dry, bitter and a bit wry. Well brewed but somehow I am not a big fan.
