Darker amber pour with decent brown head. Roasted nutty nose with some brown sugar. Flavor is carameal and a lot of light toasted malt. Very sweet, and yes, you can tell this has a lot of alcohol from the warmth. Finish is clean with a touch of bitterness from the hops.

Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet and totally dominated by over ripe fruit. The flavor is sweet wtih strong notes of fresh fruit as well as lots of hops, somewhat of a hop soup, leading to a dry bitter finish. The alcohol burns slightly in the top of the throat.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Blind tasting at Papsoes place, another great session, thanks Henrik! Beer #3: Pours hazy orange with a fully diminished white head. Orange and grapefruit aroma, light woody dry note. Flavour is sweet and light acidic. Sweet caramel malt and a mild liqourice hops note lurking through. Goes into a dry and light woody finish. A bit too sweet for my liking.

# 3 Bottle. [Papsoe’s great blind tasting, thanks Henrik!]
Average white bubbly head that mostly diminished. Fair display of lacework. Hazy amber color. Initial sniff gave the impression of sweet hoppy notes. Manly citrus, apricot and light grapefruit. Over the palate came strong notes of lovely bitterness, floral, grapefruit and again floral notes. Some underlying sweet malty and fruity feel as well. Medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation and light dry and alcoholic texture. Moderated sweet and bitter flavor in a well balanced way. Sweet floral finish with a light hoppy ending. 7-4-7-4-15 = 3.7

Bottled sample via presario. Burnt orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas of lightly toasted malt, vague citrus fruit, and a bit of alcohol. Syrupy in terms of both flavor and texture. Tons of sweet malt, black pepper, mild citrus, earth, and something burnt. Very muddled.
