Saeglopur (733) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de. Dark golden, slightly hazy body, with a medium, creamy, white head. Aroma of citrus, sour grapes, peach, candy, some grass. Tastes of citrus, grapefruit, peach, grapes, caramel, biscuit, grass. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes moderate bitter, citric and malty. Tasty! The best beer from this brewery’s APA and IPA range I’ve had so far, with a unique hop profile and a great balance between hops and malts. Refreshing and crisp.

The strong smell of citrus, very fruity, some oranges, light sour. The head is medium large, white and foamy-creamy with a normal duration. The body is pale yellow. At first it tasted fruity, then it gets more bitter, the finish is soft bitter. The body is rather light, dry and creamy with a normal carbonation.

Erasmus_ro (1675) - Alabama, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Bottle, BBE 07/08/14. Pours a deep golden yellow with a large, frothy, white head. Aroma is lemon, citrus, grapefruit. A lot of citrus, really fruity. Taste continues along the same lines: Strong lemon and grapefruit. Lemon really takes over on the finish. Dry and bitter, medium mouthfeel and fairly strong carbonation. Pretty impressive.

courtesy of fiulijn - pours a cloudy dark orange beer under a long lasting white foam; fairly hoppy aroma of citrus, peaches and almonds; medium to full-bodied; quite light carbonation; gently sticky, solidly bitter, moderately dry and very long fruity hoppy finish (mango, peaches) - elegant and full of character

c0fein (323) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 22, 2014
330ml bottle from Bier-Deluxe.

Fresh hoppy aroma but grassy too. Light yellow look with white head. Could be more bitter, too light body. Some savor interferes. Not so incredible though.

erickok (4093) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 6, 2014
Very misty golden greenish body and small bubbly yet stable head. Very fresh hops, mint almost. Fresh mandarin zest, mango and a hay like underpinning that give this beer the actual edge over so many other hoppy brews nowadays. Full bodied mouth feel, original zesty bitterness and even lemony. Almost lime pale ale like, however with a spot on malt base and characterful yeast presence. Lager light cleanness even in the start of the taste, but a lasting bitterness profile. Very good, very fresh, moderate abv and great summer beer. Best from the brewery so far, I think! (33cl bottle from La Cave à Bulles, thanks for the import ;)
