3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quite stable yellow head, some lace, over hazy amber-orange beer. Hopoils galore, exotic fruit on cake bottom, sweet pine. Very dry, woody, tannine-like flavour. Resin, but little typical hopcharacter. Warming up, pineapple. Special! Bonedry MF, despite good carbonation; quite slick and decent body. This is a rather unique one, pretty special, and hence double welcome!

50 cl bottle. Bottled on 03.12.2014.
Pours clear red color with a large head. Loads of resin on the nose, malts, some caramel notes, mild hops and some sweet tropical fruits, some cardboardy notes also as this is not that fresh anymore. Sweet resinous hops and caramel malts on the flavor, subtle gooseberries, orange and some mandarin. Bitter palate with a sweet malt-fruity finish. Sadly not so fresh anymore, decent still.
