3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. It’s a clear one, amber in color and with a bit, off-white head that lasts. Lacings. Pleasant aroma with lots of fruityness, orange and tropical fruits, some resin and green pinecones. Soft and smooth on the palate, nice carbonation level and with sufficient bitterness to deal with the sweetness. Lasting fruity finish with some bitterness. Overall, a tasteful, hop driven beer that I could easily get used to have in my fridge all the time. 120324
