4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Vintage Cellars. Great beer, with great hop notes. Aromas of caramel, grass, hay, with hints of citrus and bubblegum. Taste starts sweet, with bitterness taking over for a long finish. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

Quite a nice beer this one, Quite flavoursome and is as advertised a Hoppy Hef. Wish they could start releasing good stuff like this again in the near future.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
When I think of really hoppy beers, I think of tart, citrus flavours, but despite the extreme hopping this is all about the sweet wheat. There is a reasonable amount of citrus on the nose, together with stone fruit. In the mouth, the hops are strong but not overly bitter before giving way to a cloying taste best described as fermented peach. It’s an odd combination and not one I’d want to get into all night, but as an experiment, I enjoyed it. (this is my first use of the rate beer android app and I like it a lot, ftr).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
640ml bottle. Pours a cloudy dark gold, with lots of yellow bubbly head. Great lacing. Intense peach aroma which is very appealing. The attack has a slight grassy flavour, with peach flavours and some sweetness on the mid palate and a little lemon bitterness on the finish. Also a nice biscuity note right at the end after you’ve finished drinking. Really enjoyed it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
640ml bottle. This beer has a lot of colour and a strong body for the style. Hazy murky golden amber colour with a solid head. There is a lot going on in the aroma with a real fruit bowl of aromas bursting forth. Good texture and body and a really good strong flavour. This one was a nice pleasant surprise.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bouteille de 640 ml. Arômes de houblon fruité (agrumes, pêches) et de malt caramélisé. Robe orangée et trouble, légère dentelle et effervescence assez faible. En bouche, le houblon fruité est accompagné par un malt caramel assez rond et sucré. Le caractère de Weizen est très peu présent et même le blé est assez discret. Pale ale moyenne.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Without a doubt one of the best efforts from the series but regardless does’t quite hang together. The nose and front palate shows clear here notes of citrus ad spice but the heavy hop component progressively drowns out of the fruit. Gets bitter and firm and also shows a mild ’’imperial’ note of heavy resin and cooked fruit.

I’ve always been a fan of malt shovel beers and this didn’t disappoint. A great beer.
