Zonde dat het bier zo weinig koolzuur bevat, want verder is het een zeer goed bier. Om te beginnen ziet het er erg mooi uit. Bruin en troebel. Het aroma dat je tegemoet komt is een heerlijk sterke combinatie tussen mout, caramel en alcohol. Smaak idem, met een lange moutige bittere afdronk.

(bottle) pours a hazy orange colour with a frothy off-white head. fruity aroma of honeymelon, caramel, straciatella, pineapple, gooseberries and watermelon. flavour is much too sweet, with lots of sticky caramel and only a faint tropical fruitiness, finish is alcoholic and slightly bitter. medium to heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

MarinaMarket (210) - POULSBO, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2011
Strong malt aroma from the neck, sweet, and sugary. I get a whiff of wet horse too, but very fleeting. Pours clear amber with a very nice thick off-white head that clings to the glass. Centennial hops? Bitter, but not too much so, flavors of malts, hops, burnt sugar, but overall a bit subtle in flavors. Not much in the middle. But seems a bit sticky for a medium bodied beer. Tasted from the bottle @ 58F.

bierkoning (10169) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2011
7.9% ABV on the new label. Bottle. Orange amber color, hazy. Peach and licorice in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor, full bodied, with some oily hops and licorice. Some tropical fruit, lychee maybe. Long oily hopbitter aftertaste.

Draught @ Olutravintola Konttori
Sweet and hoppy aroma has ripe, exotic fruits. Palate is rather low on CO2. Flavour has ripe, exotic fruits, some sweet sugar and alcohol that starts to come through even more in the aftertaste. Also becomes sticky in mouth. Not very pleasant.

mjs (4555) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 24, 2011
(Draught at Pikkulintu, 20110724) The beer poured amber and cloudy. Its head was small and white. Aroma had fresh malts, glue and hops. Palate was medium bodied and dryish with medium carbonation. Flavours were hops, malts, fresh malts, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, hoppy and bitter. Too much glue-like components to be enjoyable.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 23, 2011
Cloudy tan body, thick, soapy head. Slightly soapy hop nose, rather subdued hop presence, though some perfumey esters escape. Very reserved for a double IPA. Grassy and "green" tasting. Overall, just ok. A European centric-IPA that tastes of dried noble hop. Again, a very "green" quality to the flavor.

thebeertourist (4793) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2011
On tap at In de Wildeman. Deep hazy amber, nice lacing head. Citrussy hoppiness, biscuit, grapefruit. Quite dry, but still well-balanced. Prima.

erickok (3514) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUL 15, 2011
Murky copper body with,surprisingly, small head. Great lacing. Resin, pine, berries, dough and wheat. Smooth body, but also sugary like it is thickened. Small alcoholic touch too. Perfect carbonation and a fatty full mouthfeel. Taste starts a bit too sweet but is nicely balanced up to the finish where it gets a bit dryer. Not as refreshing as expected. (33cl bottle)
