4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
75cl bottle from Systembolaget. Pours hazy light orange, with a layer of foam that sets as a thin vail on the beer. The consistency makes it look like a belgian wit beer in haziness. The aroma is breathtaking, citrus like you sometimes get from a really stronglyl late hopped american beer. The taste is a great balance between the yeast, bringing in fruity tunes, and the hops with their citrusy and piney bitterness. It is a great beer, this one. Contreras makes good beers, this is almost at the level with the Mars beer. Lovely.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Le Fin Mousse, Paris. Poured a clear dark amber with a frothy white head and broken lace. The aroma is very floral leading to some more flowers in the flavour which was initially quite a shock but grew on me after a while. Quite unusual and worth a taste. The style is of an old French floral lager, but taken to the next level. Very drinkable... eventually.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Oklart guld färgad med vitt fast skum. Doftar jord, apelsin, persika och gräs. Bra doft men lite för svag. Smak: Trä, mango, citrus, gräddkola, örter, skumbanan, granatäpple, sirap, råg. Lite för mycket kolsyra på tungan.
