4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Copper brown bodied and creamy pearl white head. Lots of yeast residue, maybe poured too much. . Rich fresh fruits like papaja, mango and grapefruit, but a malty yeast base like American IPAs can do so well. Taste isn’t as rich but more fresher and with lots of flavour. Good bitterness to make this drink range refreshing. Like the balance between sweet nose and crisp hoppy yet full body. Well made. Summery but without compromise. (33cl bottle, okay price)

Tap at Mikkeller Bar. Hazzy orange with a small foamy off-white head. Aroma is ethereal and tropic fruity with notes of peach, mango, passionfruit and pineapple. Quite sweet and medium bitter in the mouth, with a fruity and semi dry finish. A little too much fruit punch for my liking.
