Oak and tea nose, moderate strength. Hazy orange, medium yellow head, decent lace. Oaky orange peel flavor. Light body, soft carbonation. Nicely balanced with good wood. Probably won’t appeal to the hop heads, but for those who appreciate quality and nuance, this was good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A clear golden brownish with a correct white head. Malty, caramel flavour in the begining with a litle woody at the end. The taste is dry. Its had a pretty bitter grainy flavor with bits of citrus and a very light sweet aspect. You can feel a little almond flavor. At the end the a solid bitter taste hit your mouth. The moderate alcohol (6.5% ABV) doesn’t disturb the joyness of this spetial beer.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a tall can into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a semi clear amber-copper color with a modest, foamy white head that had fairly short retention, and light cling and lacing. Its aroma had citrus and grainy notes, with a floral component, along with some touches of yeast and barley. The taste had a pretty bitter grainy flavor with bits of citrus and a very light sweet aspect. It was a fairly thin beer in terms of mouthfeel, with average carbonation, and a dry body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 12oz. A clear, dark golden beer with a dense, off-white head. There’s quite a lot of malts and grass on the nose, with pine cones and some lemon peel in between. It’s full bodied and quite sweetish on the palate, with a nice carbonation. Sort of sweet flavor, with a balancing bitterness. Hop pellets, pine cones and some resins too. A faint metallic touch chimes in towards the very end. Sure a drinkable one, but I’m far from impressed. Lacking quite a lot on the hops. 140512
