Výčap Kulový blesk. Oranžová farba, biela pena, rýchlo padla. Vôňa ovocná, broskyňová a mandarinková. Chuť sladká, sladová, mandarinková a jemne citrusová. Dochuť ľahká, jemne ovocná, slabo horká. Nie zlé pivo, ale také veľmi ľahké na mňa, bez výraznej vôňe, chuti, dochuti, ...

Tasting glass draft @ AC/CB. Hazy amber with creamy white head. Light USA, citra hops in the nose, yeast, light hay. Taste is thick yeast, bread, light odd hay, touch cheesy fresh citra hops, yeast is thick. Body is touch to much candy sugar & yeast. Okay but needs to have way more less yeast & more overt taste for me. They told me that they were aiming for a more Belgian taste with this selection which I understand. Best one of the 3 beers which I tried from them then.

Everything the name suggests. It’s fresh, it’s a bit hoppy, but not overwhelmingly. And it has a dry finish. It’s an Ale for the summer (who would have guessed?)
