3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle. Frothy white head. Spicy and hoppy aroma. Coriander and bitter orange peel are noticeable. Whiffs of alcohol. Quite bitter, and the hops come to the fore. A little wheaty malt sweetness. Dry, but hoppy aftertaste. Nice, but could have been more complex, but that might be because I had it while it was still a bit too cold. Will try it warmer next time.

Hazy gold yellow color with a three finger head. Nice smell with barnyard, yellow citrus, yeast, but not particularly defined. Some alcohol is to be found in the taste, as well as medium bitterness with little hop. Very thirst quenching, very drinkable - not so complex.

Found this one in St Maarten of all places....Pours out a nice cloudy yellowish body with a nice white head, actually a very nice white head. Aroma is of citrus and spice. Nice balance with notes of yeast, clove and citrus maybe with a little spice here and there. Very good brew!!

Fresh out of my Secret Santa box with very little English on the label. Poured a hazy banana yellow with a dense white foam head. Spicey, bready nose that leads me to want to drink. Some citrus tang in the flavor, with coriander and clove spice. Very easy drinking for the claimed ABV. Very enjoyable.
