4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thanks to Glouglouburp for giving this to me as a last minute extra.
When i open the bottle (33cl), i see loads of bubbles rising and not long after, it starts foaming out of the bottle. No time like the present to pour...
Appearance: Hazy, golden body with massive foam that doesn’t take to long to form a nice 2 finger head which is fluffed like a cloud as if it were whipped.
Aroma: A sweet aroma that i can’t put my finger on (at first). Bubblegum? Not quite, more like a natural sweetness, sugar cane? Closer but not quite. More of a fresh dough smell, bordering on a fresh donut.
Flavor: I like it right off the bat. First thing i taste is hops. mixed with some dry fruit maybe? Malt rounds it off quite nicely. Extremely well-balanced.
Palate: Carbonation is low. Bitterness felt throughout the palate. Hops are always present but never dominant. Some find of rind-like feel (lemon?). A floral/grassy character is felt which reminds me of a meadow or pasture with are the aromas linked to that.
Very easy to drink with enough taste to match. Seriously, this beer puts to shame all beers that sacrifice taste for ease of consumption. The most flavorful beer with a lower ABV i’ve had to date. A beer i would have again in a heartbeat. Definitely put one on the top of your list.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle from Gradi Plato. Dark golden yellow, pretty hazy, with a big, fluffy, forever lasting bright white head. Great lacing. Grainy and dunk nose. So much weed aroma. Some grass and peaches as well. Little peppery edge upfront, pleasent bready malts presence, slightly yeasty and spicy. High bitterness for a Belgian ale, that’s for sure. Fruity aftertaste. Average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. Lovely.

And malty aroma of grain and hints of citrus. Heavy malty taste with small notes of citrus. Quite heavy bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. Does not it was bad but not good either. Mediocre beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
