4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy deep golden color, with a fine small white head. More hazy after the cold chill, have left the building. Mild sour, and acidic fruity aroma. Caramel, and some banana in there also. Well it felt acidic sour in the beginning. After a while it is just smooth and balanced sweet. Some candy and tropical fruits. Nice smooth thick body. Sweet, in a mellow and lovely way. Moderate bitterness, and a bit oily texture. Soft smooth carbonation. Not to soft. A higher carbonation would not have done this one any good. Oh mother earth what have you created. 4 years to the date after it was bottled. It is still one hell of a beer. Craft at its best. Complex and so tasty. Lovely caramel together with tropical fruits, banana, yeast, vanilla and some spices. No sticky alcohol here. Well hidden, but warming. This beer was a its best somewhere in the middle between cold and warm. It changed all the time. Recomendable to start a bit to cold.This one took me by surprise. Dear Santa. Tell that nice punkrocker to find another bottle or two down where all the spiders live.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Straw-yellow colour. Floral aroma with herbs maybe? Taste is very sweet, reminds me of candy sugar. There are also notes of cereal and leaves. Oily texture and some alcohol in the finish. A bit unusual, but a nice experience.
