papat444 (22) - Mercier, Quebec, - SEP 3, 2008
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.

On tap at the Jeffrey. Beautiful opaque orange with lush head. Good lacing. Juicy nose. Loads orange and passion fruit. Taste is strangely ashy. Hints of tobacco. Bitter on the finish. Eh.

Seffle (164) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle from Systemet. Very cloudy light yellow body with a firm creamy white head. Fresh aroma with citrus but a heavy bitterness in the palate with very little other taste surviving. Not to my liking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy golden body with a medium head. Some citrus and yeast in the aroma. Hoppy bitter and somewhat boring taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

elosop (149) - SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2014
Dimmigt, ljust halmgul med ihållande fint skum.Tämligen svag "torr" arom. Direkt bitter citrus i smaken med lite tallkåda/ananas. Lång, torr efterbeska. Annorlunda lågalkohol IPA!

330 ml bottle. Sharp yellow colour, white head that stays. Lots of CO2. Citrus, some cereals. Dry, tart taste. I had higher expectations about this beer. It got a bit better after a while in the glass. Maybe better at 6-7% abv.

budedou (384) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - AUG 19, 2014
Pours a pale gold and cloudy with three fingers of fluffy white head. Fairly complex aroma with a good balance of yeasty scents and fresh hops. Fragrant with some flowers, perfume, baking yeast and some hay. The palate is quite light bodied and hop forward. Not as complex as the nose. The finish is medium long with a moderate bitterness

Light color with thick white head. Lift aroma and bitter taste. Quite bubbly and waterish palate. Lots of bitter aftertaste. A good light hoppy ale, would be perfect for a hot summer day
