0,33 l bottle out the kappldav123 surprise-box. Thanks a lot! Pours unclear dark golden in the glass, nice white head. Intensive fruity aroma out of the bottle and the glass, grapefruit, malt and hop. Starts herb bitter, then shortly citrus, followed by caramell with a well balanced fruity herb. Longlasting, but not overdosed. The 8,3% alcohol a very hidden. Great one!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Crew Ale. Nice thick head with a deep yellow, light orange color. Strong aromas of sweet fruits, fresh lemon, watermelon and the smell of young grass.
Tastes of fruits, which convert into more fruits. From orange, peach to more saturated fruits like red apple and ripe grapes, even some hints of honey, really intense. Fruityness vanishes into a malty, breadish flavor, which becomes more and more bitter, with a long hoppy finsih. While hoppyness kicks in, the floral, fruity tastes are still remarkably present, which gives the beer a powerful, complex aftertaste. Carbonation is perfect, not too much, underlines the freshness of this beer very well.
