planky84 (2248) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2014

Idiosynkrasie (4365) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average, thick, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity aroma has notes of gosseberry, red berries, a touch of apricot, hints of floral hop. Taste is minimally sweet pale malty, fruity hints of gosseberry, red berries, hints of apricot, a peppery spicy touch, dry, minimally herbal hoppy overtones that turn floral in the finish. Really nice, the golden colour worked as red herring concerning my expectations.
