SinH4 (3191) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 22, 2016
Tap. Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, some bready malts. Very fruity. Taste is more tropical fruits, a grainy-bready malt base, dry. Oily mouthfeel. I like!

Porzadne letnie ale, kolor miedzy zlotym a jasno bursztynowym, srenio metne ze spora piana, srednio trwala i szybko rosnaca. Chmiele w nozdrzach od razu wyczuwalne, w smaku wytrawne i gozkie, dlugo utrzymuje sie ten posmak w ustach i gardle. Srednia slodowosc. Fajne wytrawne piwko

Slight aroma of malts, grain, fruit and hops.

Hazy/turbid golden/amber beer with a slight/medium off-white head.

Starts slightly sweet with malts and fruit; ends slightly dry with grain and hops.

This beer is rather balanced, but lacks intensity and complexity. Nothing really to say about this beer. It drinks pleasantly, but has no distinct aroma or flavour whatsoever. The appearance is good however and the palate is okay.

From the tap at the brewery in Utrecht. The beer is orange colored and has a nice head with good carbonation. The aroma is fresh, hoppy and fruity with tropical fruit, citrus, grapefruits, malts, grass and flowers. The taste is medium bodied and fruity with fresh American hops and a light sweetness and notes from the aroma are well noticable. The finish is light dry, refreshing and a with a long noticable bitterness. Very good brew.

Mooi oranje licht troebel bier met fijne witte schuimkraag. Aroma van passievrucht, mango, citrus. Lekker vol en redelijk romig in de mond. Smaken van appelsien, exotisch fruit. Afdronk is misschien beetje plat maar voor de rest prima bier.

Zlotta (2264) - Hagen, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2016
Sampled from tap at the brewpub. Clear, golden yellow with a white head. Sweetish, fruity and a little grassy aroma of lemon, pineapple and some lychee. Sweetish, fruity, slightly herbal and a bit grassy aroma of lemon, pineapple, some ginger and lychee, followed by a short, slightly bitter, moderately grassy-dry and a little herbal finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Really nice!
