Ragnampiza (558) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JAN 23, 2015
341 ml bottle from Les Vignerons. Light amber, pretty clear but with tons of floaties, and an average, bubbly and moderately persistent off white head. Not the freshest aroma, which is fine considering the age of the bottle, but pretty clean and inviting. Citrus, peach, freshly cut grass, orange peel, slightly dunk and floral as well. Quite noticeable malts presence in the background, slightly nutty, toasted and caramel forward. Definitely more sweet than I first thought. Mild astringency, extremely juicy and moderately dry. Subtle but lingering bitterness, fruity and hoppy taste. Honey like sweetness in the aftertaste. Excellent drinkability with no alchool taste at all. Soft to average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. I’m afraid the long trip may have changed its conditions, but it’s still a tasty beer.

miquelcrush (1603) - Granollers, SPAIN - JAN 14, 2015
Cervesa amb unaroma extrany amb un toc massa cítric, un cop en boca es dissimula i queda tot molt arrodonit. Cerveza con un aroma raro con un toque demasiado cítrico, una vez en boca se disimula y queda muy redondeado.

oliodnb (431) - ITALY - JAN 9, 2015
341ml bottle. Bottled on 07 2014. Pours hazy golden with lots of particles floasting and a thick white head that disappears slowly. Aroma is sweet malts and light tropical (no idea of how kumquats smells) with resin notes. Taste is similar with a good amount of hoppy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, low to medium carbonation, watery texture (in the good way). Very drinkable, no alcohol detectable. Very well balanced albeit not too tasty. Good.

TimE (3577) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 8, 2015
Hazy light golden color. Kumquats and tropical fruits in the nose the hope are very soft. Nicely balanced body, very easy drinking and refreshing. Really nice.

Flyguytruckguy (39) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2015
Slightly hoppy aroma with definite citrus smell.Average creamy head, moderately lasting with some lacing. Slightly hazy pour with a moderate yellow amber colour. Initially sweet flavour with a slightly bitter finish of average duration. Light body with a slightly oily feel. Soft carbonation with a slightly chalky feel to the finish. The fruity taste is definitely kumquat as that what they brew it with. Bottle date of 17,october 2014. Definitely will be drinking this next summer. Cheers.

shorlin (709) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - DEC 29, 2014
Pour has some particulates, bright gold with a decent head and good lacing. Aroma is lots of fruit, citrus. Taste is really not to my taste: it’s got some sweetness, some bitter, but it doesn’t really jump at me. I might have to try one with a better pour but overall I’m disappointed.

UXO (534) - CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
Pours cloudy pale gold with one finger of rocky white head, excellent retention, moderate lacing. (4/5) Nose is multiple variations on citrus: pulp, pith, and rind, with tropical fruit sweetness and pale malt. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet and moderate bitter. (8/10) Light to medium body, prickly to moderate sustained carbonation, and a bittersweet finish. (4/5) Really solid A/IPA: bright and juicy citrus, lots of fun to drink. The cloudy gold colour makes it almost look like the orange juice it smells like. Not sure I could clearly identify the citrus as kumquat, as opposed to sweet mandarins, for example, but I’ll take their word for it. The initial flavour is all fairly high (yet well-balanced) sweet citrus, giving way to a nice hoppy bitterness towards the finish, and the ABV never makes an appearance. I could drink a lot of these. (16/20)
