Kita (1495) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 3, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l. Murky deep amber color with large soapy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of pineapple, papaya, pine, herbs and yeast. Taste starts with light sweet caramel and bready, following is refreshing herbal and citric, following is dry and mild spicy, while finish is bitter. Medium body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. True enlightenment for cheerful people...

vinivini (748) - BELARUS - JUL 24, 2015
Cloudy orange, tall white head that is not intensive. Nevertheless nice laces. On nose resin, citrus, some funny medicine. Light to medium body. Hoppy bitter flavour of resin, grapefruit & herbs. Long hoppy finish. Not the best thing by the brewery but solin enough.

Saeglopur (1112) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 18, 2015
330 ml bottled 13/11/14, shared by Geiserich at RB Tasting Linz, thanks!
Orange, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, off-white head.
Aroma of grapefruit, yeast, glue, peach, grass, herbs.
Tastes of grapefruit, orange, grass, some spices, candy, some yeast.
Light mouthfeel, with a low carbonation.
Finishes moderate bitter, a bit sweet, fruity, a bit yeasty.

Nice one. I don’t like the nose too much, but the taste is nice, fruity and easy. Overall nothing special, but a sessionable, hoppy ale.

AshtonMcCobb (4067) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - usual murky amber from De Molen. Nose - grapefruit, maybe pink grapefruit. Taste - hobnobs and oranges. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - yep good beer, shame about the Appearance.

Bottle at home shared with Ashton McCobb, cheers Ash! Pours hazy amber with a thin white head. Aromas of crystal malt, yeasty woodiness, pink grapefruit. Taste is woody, pine bitterness, big whack of sweetness. Sweet finish.
