3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 1000ml. Courtesy of Bov. It pours a murky lactic golden beer with a good, nicely remaining lacing head. Strong reminiscence of papaya in the nose. Fruity with a nice bite. Candy sugar and patato sneaking in. Yeast accented. Subtle carbonation. Patato components in the taste. A tad to sweet for my liking. Medium bodied. Tobacco, earthy hops and papaya in the finish which is dryish. A beautiful, impressive beer. Thanks a lot Bov!
