4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A orange yellow beer with a medium and blond head. Aroma is fruitfull, mandarin, yeast, spicyness, hint of marshmellow and banana; a great aroma. Taste of fruits, mandarin, lots of spicyness, some citrusfruits and fructose, enough of bitterness that dries the aftertaste to herbal. Full- bodied, smooth and lightning carbonation, easy to enjoy. Very succesfull beer, complexicity with easy enjoyability; the great beer again from Rulles.
