50cl bottle shared by Dutchdrebus. Hazy dark orange color, small to medium beige head, fair lacing. Smell lightly malts, a lot of hops but a bit round, lots and lots of pine, resin and spruce. Taste should be the same...oh yeah! Malts, hops, pine, lightly resin, superbly bitter. Medium to full carbo, lightly sticky texture, medium to full body. Fantastic!!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. An almost clear one, dark golden in color and topped by a small, off-white head. There’s a faint, weak note of something reminiscent of cellar in the aroma, a touch of alcohol too, slightly more caramel maltyness than in the 8 % ABV edition, but it’s mostly citrusy, piney hops. The flavor is a bit on the sweet side I think, with lots of bitterness, and pleasant hoppy yumminess. Full-bodied and nicely carbonated, finishing with a nice sweetness, and even more bitterness. Overall, it’s a bit on the sweet side, but it’s certainly a nice beer anyway. 110916
