1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Golden orange relatively clear. Aroma of bitterscotch with hints of floralness in the back. Bitter and astringent, not very nice at all.. maybe a bad bottle or something because the butterscotch is way to high.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle courtesy of Gunfryd. Hazy orange body with a small off-white head. Quite unusually in aroma. It is definitively hoppy, but difficult to decide what it is. Hint of blackcurrant leaves, fresh grass, herbs, bubblegum and yeast among others. Flavor is sweet and bitter, soft malt, some caramel malt, then some of the same strange elements from aroma, tropical fruit, berries, herbs and grass. Medium body and bitter aftertaste. I really enjoy once and again to smell and taste something completely different and rather unusually, and this time it was impossible to place the hops. I just had to relax and enjoy the beer without trying to place all the flavors, and the beer is actually really nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer is golden in the glass, slightly cloudy, with a flat, fine head. It smells sour, hoppy, very fruity. Starts very hoppy-bitter, with lots of tropical fruit and subtle fruity fermented. In the background much sweet strawberry and bubble gum. I’ll bet for Sorachi Ace. The middle part is very fruity and sweet, again with lots of tropical fruits and some bubble gum. Goes into a hoppy, fruity finish with massive aroma of sweet strawberry!

On tap at Mikkeller Bar, June 2012.
Slightly hazy amber with a small white head. This was a strange beer, difficult to define. Hops, "fish", malt......don’t know what to write.
