Hazy yellow color, small white head, some lace. Aroma has citrus and elderflower. Light-bodied. Acidic, orange peels and some taste of cardboard. Lingering tart bitterness. Doesn’t feel refreshing APA, more like odd witbier. BBE 01/04/14.

FatPhil (8604) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Initially nice crisp hoppy aroma, zingy. Later mashier, white flour, stodgy. Horribly pale, brief white head. Very stodgy mashy taste, white flour, some wallpaper paste. Do like the hopping, nice fresh herbal and grassy hops. Quite acidic finish, aggressive. Otherwise a bit watery in the palate, but with OK carbonation. Fullness is there, but alas part of that is because of the stickier malts. Overall, it’s not so bad, quite like several aspects, but the negatives cannot be overlooked.

Golden, lightly cloudy. Nice white head that lasts somewhat. Nice dry floral aroma, with a hint of malt. Maltly with clear flowery bitterness. Bitter in the aftertaste that grows on you. high in carbon. A nice beer.
