jerd16 (194) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Clear burnt orange body with small white head. Aroma is subdued - a little smoky, hint of citrus. Definitely contradicts the taste. T - Some toffee malt lies beneath an overpowering medicinal taste - almost throat lozenge-esque. Fairly dry and finishes with a fiery-bitter tail.

330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Slightly stodgy malty aroma, nice rough grungy edge, farmhousey, touch of onion. Mid orange, with a sticky medium head. Grungier in the mouth, perhaps too much so. Smooth palate, soft carbonation. Lots of husks, a bit rough. Certainly has that French twist, but it’s not doing it for me. Possibly this is mood. Anna was 3.low for it.

hoppybreweruk (33) - WALES - DEC 20, 2013
A very good beer that can make this 6.6% beer dangerous. Very smooth and very drinkable or dare i say sessionable? Nice 1 finger head, deep in colour combining with a really nice floral and spicy aroma and taste. Its not harsh on bitterness either. Very good beer.

leebotton (201) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2013
Sweet honey aroma like nectar. Slightly cloudy Amber in appearance. No head. Tastes like honeycomb wax very pleasant but not much else going on bit the honeycomb taste is a great focus. Average texture and carbonation. Very reasonable.

martjoobolut (731) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 23, 2013
Hoppy aroma with hints of pine, slighlty hazy golden color, rather thin head dissapears quickly. Hoppy taste of caramel, pine, bitter grapefruit, some floral flavor. Nice bitter finish with hints of caramel. Medium-lively carbonation. Overall: really nice one, would drink again.
