3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s slightly hazy, red copper and the head is huge, creamy and lasting. The aroma has notes of malt, fruity hops, citrus and a light milky sourness. The flavour also has a hint of sour milk, notes of fruit, citrus (mostly grapefruit) and very little malt. I miss some caramel and more malt, and I wonder if it’s supposed to have this slightly tart, milky sourness?

(Bottle at Beermakers dinner) Nice strong aroma with lots of hops. The flavor is very faint, with citrus and fruit. The aftertaste is very long and stronger than the flavor.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Deep brownish red with a fine, large, creamy, yellowish head. Aroma is big and hoppy. Lots of strawberries, melons, herbs, light spiciness and grapefruit. Some malts and slight yeasty cardboard as well. Highish carbonation, a bit weak in mouthfeel. Flavour is low on malts, some yeast and a nice, fruity, bitter finish. Somehow, the initial flavours don’t add up all that well to the rest of the beer.
