4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: Nice fruity and tart aroma with orange, apricot and more.
Mouthfeel: Big, very creamy, fizzy.
Taste: Very bold with prominent bitterness, balanced by a big malt background. Tart fruit and citrusy notes, too. Caramel, orange and liquorice are among the things it reminds me of.
Finish: Dry and bitter like orange peel.
Overall: Very good, but It could use some more hops, I think.
