A big bold, in your face, malty beer! A touch of sweetness to start, nuttiness to follow and hoppy-ness to finish. Give it a little time and let this beer develop and tantalise those taste buds with its powerful and delectable kick of Willamette hops. A complex copper coloured fusion of distinction. There’s a lot going on with this cheeky little beer, so take your time and sup it up.

Bottle @ Kings Day Tasting 2014 shared by Dutchdrebus. Slightly unclear autumn reddish color, full sized off-white head. Aroma is fresh, piney, spruce, hops. Taste lightly malty, hoppy, very nice piney flavor, spruce, freshly cut wood, a superb smooth bitterness and a touch of caramel. Medium body, soft yet suitable carbonation. Very nice!! Would drink this on a regular basis if it were available around here. Impressive stuff.
