Bottle: Reddish-amber coloured, stable off-white foamy layer, solid hoppy and toasty nose; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, barely full bodied; lingering fruity-toasty finish with a light alcoholic touch. Not bad…

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Cloudy amber colour with average to huge, firm, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Floral hoppy aroma with some fruity notes in the background, grapefruit, mango, also hints of red currant. Taste is minimally to moderately sweet, unspecific fruity, fruit acid, a dry note of fruit parings, later minmally toasty caramel malty notes appear in the background; also a dry note in the finish. Subtle sparkling carbonation.
Nicely balanced brew that way better accentuates the unagressive, subtle notes of their self-cultivated hop than the IPA.
