750ml bottle

Pours light orange with a large bubbly head. Aroma of fruity hops, some earthy notes, soapy caramel notes and hints of lemon. Taste is quite fruity and lemony with some grassy hops and malty notes. Finish is bitter and slightly fruity with some grassy notes. Quite nice mix of American and German hops, surprisingly good and a great summer beer.

Sweet, fruity aroma of sweet tangerine oils. Flavour also has that bittersweet orangey feel and hints of tropical fruit. The finish is of very fresh, dry hop. Medium body, medium carbonation. Slightly sticky, oily feel. A real thirst quencher.

Rare Beer Club.  750 ml bottle.  Gusher.  Damn went all over the place.  Enormous frothy white head.  Floral hop aroma.  Taste of citrus hops.  Closer to Belgian IPA.  Easy drinking.  Big carbonation.  Nice mouthfeel

Bottle - 750mL corked and caged. Label shows name as "Zomerhop" and a bottling date of "27 April 2012". Explosive release of pressure when the cage is loosened that thankfully doesn’t erupt and overflow. However the pour suffers from this as the tiny amount poured into the tulip glass is 90% foam. Tall blond head atop a hazed over amber body. Once the head dies off, the aroma comes through a but more with strong citrus notes, floral hops, spicy hops and herbal notes. It’s essentially all hops and fruit notes in the aroma. Soft malt notes and a touch of caramel in the background. Taste is citrus fruit, tropical fruit, herbal hops, floral notes, hints of pine, dusty yeast, soft malt and light earthiness as well. Body is light-medium and extremely effervescent. Strong prickly carbonation throughout as well as a moderate lingering hop bitterness. Ends with more citrus fruit, light pine, floral hops, herbal notes, unripe tropical fruit, dusty yeast and mild earthy notes. I’d call this a Belgian Pale Ale as it’s more akin to a Belgian Ale than a traditional IPA but a tasty summer beer nonetheless.
