4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
75cl bottle. Orange and hazy which is the most beautiful beer color in the world. The head is medium and white. Seams perfect till now. Nose : tart and strong pine and citrus notes. A bit soapy and wet laundry aromas of yeast. Little bit estery with predominant peach. Sip : medium density with low to medium carbonation. Oily texture. Creamy overall feeling in the mouth. Tartiness is sweet but soon the bitter hops taking over and create a very well balanced beer. The alcohol is quite hidden. Almost an easy to drink. Really well brewed strong beer. Masterpiece from La Rulles !
