COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sane or senseless? Harmless or harmful? Sometimes it takes awhile to get to know a stranger. Initial impressions are not always reality, so you must delve deeper. Beyond the initial floral hop aromas, malt sweetness is revealed, yet with a spicy undertone that exposes a very rye sense of humor. Take your time to get to know the Stranger. It’s strangely satisfying.

adnielsen (9659) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2011
On tap @ Left Hand. Light golden orange appearance with an ivory head. Dull earthy hoppy, boring nose. A touch bitter flavor from some mild hops but pretty boring light beer.

Benzai (9428) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2012
Bottle @ home, bought at De Bierkoning, shared with Dutchdrebus. Hazy almost pale orange color, medium sized white head that disappears fully within a couple of seconds. Aroma of malts, some hops, a bit oxidised so I guess it’s a bit old. Taste malts, lightly hops, lightly bitter. Nothing fruity really, and again a bit old. Or maybe it has been in the store in the light for too long. So all things considered: I think it’s a decent APA when it’s fresh, but now it’s not that good. Too bad.

Dunkelgoldenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig fruchtig, hopfig, blumig. Geschmack leicht nach tropischen Früchten, malzig, leicht bitterer Abgang.
