Turboninja (237) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 1, 2015
Bottle@Artturi, Tampere, Finland. Medium/light aroma with matured mango and some bitterness. Deep yellow color and small/medium white head. Hazy liquid. Medium, dry, bit bitter taste of mango and some citrus. A hint of malts. Balanced with narrow/medium taste spectrum. Medium/long hoppy aftertaste with malts and dry fruits. Light body and medium carbonation. Overall bit simple although balanced. Dry notes bring freshness. Too much carbonation and too light body.

Wygląd: Bardzo wysoka, średnioziarnista piana. Opada wolno i zostawia duży lacing. Barwa złoto-pomarańczowa, zamglone. Aromat: Mocne cytrusowe nuty. Wyraźne mango i ścięta trawa. Lekko słowode. Smak: Kaskowe na początku, szybko dociera solidna goryczka o sosnowym i cytrusowym charakterze. Nie zalega. Czuć też skórkę cytryny. Odświeżające, lecz chyba zbyt ciężkie na upalne piątkowe popołudnie. Wysycenie średnio wysokie.

_angst_ (3728) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2015
Draught @ BBB. Pours tiny hazy pale golden with a frothy white head that leaves some thick lacing on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity with crackers, grapefruit juice, mango, pineapple, passion fruit, star fruit, freshly cut grass, pine needles, chives and lemon zest. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter, fruity, grassy and tiny buttery. Mouthfeel is tiny dry, slightly round, slightly astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with crackers, grapefruit juice, mango, passion fruit, freshly cut grass, pine needles, chives, lemon zest and hints if butter. Taste doesn’t live up to the fresh fruity nose. Bit buttery which annoys me.

From tap, hazy pale gold with low head. Aroma with stong notes of citrus and pine. Taste is bitter with a medium body and a long dry bitter finish. Notes of tropical fruit, cereals, citrus and some resin. Nice but a little unbalanced.
