3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. BBE 12/2012.
Pours an unclear yellow colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of strong floral hops, spruce and some perfume-like notes. Flavour of crispy floral hops, citrus, bready malts, orange and some very interesting barley wine -like ripe fruitiness. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Full on finish of floral hops, citrus and mild fruitiness. This has a bit heavier body than on other beers Iíve tasted from this brewery. Good one.
