small bottle at woodshop. Very interesting beer. Big head on this amber pour. Aromas were a bit tart and fruit, but the flavor was more sweet and touches of fruity hops.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a golden orange with a tight bubbled, cream colored head that took more room in the glass than the liquid. It took 5 minutes to die down, and then the horse blanket and hop nose came through. The flavor to me was like fresh Orval in a way. Quite complex and interesting.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had this from tank at the brewery, draught at The Rover and Bishops Arms in Göteborg as well as at GW68 in Stockholm. The beer was brewed according to my recepie, but I had no commercial interests in it. Have been thinking about whether or not to rate it, but here goes.
Clear amber color, fluffy off-white head. Citrus and grape scent, hoppy and sweet. Grape, citrus hoppy taste, also sweet. Smooth nice mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
I still have some bias I guess, but rating for me would be like 9/4/9/4/18=4.4

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Huge fizzy beige head that mostly lasted. Good lacework. Light cloudy amber color. Caramel, grain, floral, grass, grapefruit, citrus and a hint of spice. Medium bodied with a dry and alcoholic texture and extremely fizzy carbonation. Light sweet flavor with moderated bitterness. Way to carbonated to the point of spoiling the fun. Bitter finish.
