3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a frothy, but diminishing yellowish head. Decent lacing. Rather sweet and slightly tart aroma, hoppy and with a metallic overtone. Dusty notes as it warms as well as a faint, fledgling anise note. Further warming brings out fruity notes, including apple. Sweetish and fresh hop flavour on a malty background. Wooden sort of note as it warms. Finish is watery. Malty and with a mild to medium bitterness, lingering. A wee bit too much carbonation. Overall the aroma and initial flavour is pretty good, but the finish could have been better and the whole feels a bit unbalanced. Still, pretty decent though. 28.01.12.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Deep orange-red, clear body with a small white head. Nose is pineapple, red berries, grass, peaches and hints of cat piss, herbs and pine. The hops crash together in my mouth, bouncing off each other with no other direction than complete nullification: kiwi, grass and dusty hops mixed with cat piss, herbs and heather flowers in a somehow utterly dis-harmonic mix. Interesting, and with a nice aroma, but the far too chaotic hop profile ruins it all. Next time, don’t invite the entire valley to the party - be selective.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A clear amber coloured liquid with a small off-white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Smells like a picnic with biscuits and butterscotch in the middle of a citrus orchard. But once you drink it, it’s obvious the caramel and biscuit are really only there to balance the lovely flowery citrus bitterness that dominates the flavour. Goes great with Thai food. With only 4% ABV I guess this time less truly is more.

2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
2011-12-08. Warm, yellow color and a steady head. Soft, pleasant hop notes combined with a mild floweriness and sweet toffee. Watery, slightly chemical taste. The hopiness seems to feeling lost and the brew is really unbalanced. Dry aftertaste with some metal hops.
