3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg at CBC, Clerkenwell thanks to Jack. It pours hazy golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is dough, soft fruit, nectarine, peach, sherbet and candy. The taste is straw, hay, nice bitterness, dough, icing sugar, candy and soft fruit with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Too sweet. Doesnít work for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy gold color body with a nice foamy white head. Fruity aroma, jolly rancher candy, very sweet, some lemon notes hiding, bit of oxidation which gets more pronounced as beer sit a bit. Taste bitter, grassy, light caramel, lemon, fruity, refreshing. Long dry finish and a light-medium body hid the alcohol nicely. I could drink several of these in a row (although the carbonation is a bit high, which would get annoying.)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (Viisi Pennia, Helsinki)
Super sweet aroma, fruity, am I getting sorachi ace? If so, this is the best integrated sorachi ace ever. Hazy peach small white head. Ugh! whatís going on it the mouth? Horribly chemical. Itís not menthol, itís not phenol, but itís one of those -ols, and itís everywhere. Soapy. Perfumed soap, admittedly, but still soap. Not an IPA, a quirky joke beer. And not funny. Damn, and I was hoping this would be the first beer with sorachi ace that was well balanced, I curse my nose for finding that aroma and misleading me. Not a disaster, but a disappointment. Did finish the bottle, for example.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours hazy golden in color with foamy whitish head. Fruity, floral and light doughy notes in aroma. Something more is there for sure as well. Grassy bitter in taste, but there are some more mellower and at the same time a bit sweeter indications in taste as well. Smooth finish and feels like a good and tasty brew on the whole.
