Bottle. Low and quickly disappearing white fluffy head. Clear yellow body. Sweet lemon apple aroma. Flavor mild, sweet and unfortunately without much fruityness or hops bitterness. The carbonation is boosting the fruit impression but still it feels a bit thin and watery. Short aftertaste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. BB 28 Jun 10
Clean golden body, short-lived white foam.
Sweet malt on the nose, golden syrup-like. Slight hint of smoke and soap, which is a bit odd, and some pleasant floral and light citrus hops.
Carbonation is somewhat low and soft on the tongue, body is oddly full, chewy, bulky, texture a tad flabby and oily.
Malty upfront; cereally, light caramel, faint roastiness and peat-like smokiness; quite sweet overall. Quite fruity from there on; pears, apples, mandarin-like citrus with a bit of herbaceousness and spice that linger on a moderately bitter finish.
This is certainly a wierd beast. Probably a bit too sweet and unbalanced for my like, but the flavour is intriguingly complex and quite tasty. Totally not what I expected.
