Bottled. A golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet malty - and really nothing else - a bit boring. The flavor is sweet with notes of peaches, as well as a light spicy hoppyness. It gains in complexity when it warms up, but never impresses me.

Hazy golden color, thin head, nice cobweb-like lace. There is a great hop aroma, very fruity, grapefruit and bitter oranges over all. Very good toffee flavor, less sweet than my liking, maybe just a bit drier than this beer deserves, at the end; powerful hopping, giving both a fruity and resiny touch, but never overwhelming. Powerful final, but if anything, less than expected, and shorter. After one year, it seems that some corners have softened, the flavors are well mixed together, and everything is more balanced.

Hazy golden color. Wonderful hoppy aroma, a bit resiny and greatly fruity: grapefruit, sweet oranges, peach... Even a touch of cookies. The body is not too strong, almost dry; there is a quite strong toffee flavor, very strong bitterness with quite strong resins and bitter oranges, mango. Very good, but unbalanced between aroma and flavor.
