3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. From bierzwerg.de.
Cloudy amber colour with small to average size creamy white head.
Bready malt, citrusy and nutty hoppy bitterness and very nice fruitiness in aroma. Flavour is a bit more simple. Caramel sweetness, nuts, fruity hops, mild bitterness and biscuity maltiness. Very good, robust and tasty one. Wasn’t exactly the cheapest one but it’s worth every cent.

Bottle. Peach, grass and grap hop aroma. Cloudy orange, offwhite lace. Light meaky ,alt base, nice tropical hop component, ends on s slightly too dry grassy/metallic note. Nevertheless good balance for the style. Peach and mango retronasal.

Pours a hazy murky golden colour with a small lacy head. Aroma of pungent citrus and fresh floral hops. Flavour of fresh floral hops, grass, peach, grapefruit and some yeast.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle. BBE 12.11.2012.
Pours hazy golden color with a medium-sized frothy head. Aroma is quite fruity, has fresh hops and is quite nice altogether Some mild nutty notes and nettle can be found also. Flavor of apricot, lemon, goose berries, mild yeast and hops. Bitter palate. Some weird vegetable side-note on the aftertaste ruins the show a bit. Still surprisingly good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 12.11.2012
Quite fruity aroma with peaches, citrus and biscuits. Flavour is somewhat hoppy with gooseberry bush, some nettles, grapefruit, apricot and soapy lemon. Somewhat disturbing and odd, vegetable‐like savor in the finish. Quite American for a German beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle looks a bit boring. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts intense hoppy and sweet, fine fruity like peaches and apricot. Hoppy-flowery finish, bit milder, still sweet. Very interesting.
