Bottle @ home. Aroma is lovely orange and citrussy hops, touch of grapefruit and lychee. Flavour is a big bold hop bitterness, sharp and fresh, again with loads of citrussy and orange notes. Subtle malt note. Great pale ale.

33 cl. bottle sampled / shared. Same kind of graphic design concept as with the Bedow Summer Pilsner. Once again, I don’t feel like it quite working out, meh… No point deducted for the beer since graphic stuff is a bonus. Pours a dark, amber orange with a white head. Nose is quite strongly hoppy, edging towards enough to be called an IPA, sweet grapefruit, pineapple, touch tropical, pine resin & light herbs. Taste is bitter herbs, oranges, fruity, light tropical, spices, floral flourishes, bitter fruits & tad herbs in the back. Easy to drink, quite decent.

shoulderbroken (3831) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 17, 2012
Bottle at home from Tanakaya. Slightly hazy amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is grapes, slight funk, tropical fruit, lychee maybe, spicy malt. Taste is unusual. Slightly sweet, fruity, herbal elements, slight bitterness in the finish, quite unusual. Bit of grape there as well and maybe gooseberry. And also something savoury, sour cream and chive that I taste in beers sometimes. In any case very nice, refreshing, easily drinkable.

Pours cloudy amber with a beige head. Aroma is pine, grassy hops, tropical fruits, bread crust, freshnessy hoppy, bright citrus fruits and sweet pineapple. Taste is very fresh and fruity with tropical fruits, juicy hops, sweet citrus fruits, sexy beach and slight grains. Summer lovin.

Small bottle purchased @Ølbutikken, København. Big-bubbled foamy blond head. Body is orangey-golden with good clarity. Summerflowers, mixed bag tropical and perfumed yellow fruits to the nose. Amazing! Easy on the palate. Light-bodied and crisp. Nice fruity hop flavor. Tropical, floral, mild citrus -fruity. Mild dry malty backbone. Dryish inviting fruit finish. Oh yes, very sessionable. Bring’em on!

JorisPPattyn (9534) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2012
Rather thick, yellowish to cream head over foxy orange beer; some lace. Fruity C-hops, grapes, passion fruit, lytchee, citrus... Bit of ureum/hessian sacks aromas. Bitter, fruity with pure citrus/-marmalade retronasal. Fruity hops utterly dominating the flavour. Very lively carbonation, quite (hopoily) slick, medium bodied; Maybe a tad too slick. It gets a kind of alcoholic fruitdrink character, this way, if on the bitter side; Refreshing, no doubt.

Bottle at Mikkeller Bar, july 19th 2012. Hazy orange body with a creamy offwhite head. Hoppy aroma of several exotic fruits and a matching malt presence. Taste follows, with peach, pineapple, grapefruit and a light pine note, combined with caramel. Good bitter and fruity aftertaste. One of the most refreshing apa’s I’ve had in a long time.
