On tap at petrol station in Houston tx. P is hazy chestnut gold with a brief white head. Nose is tropical fruits; pineapple, apples, citrus hops. Taste is the same with a light drinkable fruit, and resin, sweet mouthfeel. Lacks the yeasty pepper notes I allotment w a saison... But I like that about it :-)

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2012
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Pours a cloudy opaque orange with a white head. Cool chewy Galaxy hop aroma, berry-like. Medium body, a little sweet tropical fruits, a bit too fizzy with some phenols. Rather bitter finish. Far from perfect, but fairly interesting. 230512

kidmartinek (4670) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 29, 2011
Light malty amber color with a rosy tint. White head = 1-> .2 inches quick. Crazy aroma. There’s bitter, pale malt, farmhouse yeast and red hibiscus tea all mixed in. Some may say it smells like vics or some other non-beer medicine. The flavor is rad. Its like a pal ale and farmhouse ale in one. The palate light, airy and chalky. Its fizzy on the finish, hides its alcohol extremely well and creates a warming sensation in the belly with each sip.
