3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 150 cl. Pours an almost clear deep golden with a creamy off-white head leaving some lacework. Distinct peach and citrus in the nose. Medium body, fruity but in the driest sense and then again lovely grapefruit accents, pine and peach from the American aroma hops. Nice one - and very far from a "traditional" christmas beer - whatever that is. 261209 261209

Bottled@Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Ambery orangeish colour with some reddish hints. Small slightly off-white head. Aroma is fruits, earth, some yeastyness and also some Cannabislike sweetness. Flavour is quite much IPA-like as for the hoppyness, but also has some rather strong yeasty and earthy notes.

Pours hazy amber with a good, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is super hoppy. Grassy, grapefruit, peach. Some caramel and wheat as backbone. Medium carbonation, nice dryness. Rather creamy. Flavour is dry, sweet wheat, some caramel, coriander. And a sh**-load of dry bitter hops. Lightly fruity and grassy. Lovely balanced beer.
