3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(330ml bottle shared @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Dec 15 2015) Aroma of bitter orange peel, citrus juice, sweet pale pit fruit, slightly bready caramel malt, floral hops, a little yeast character with spicy phenolics. Fairly sweet malt core at first with caramel, orange, pale pit/tropical fruit notes, bitterness builds with orange peel, floral hops, slightly spicy, a little toast to the malt. Finish is medium bitter, orange peel, hops with citrus and slight pine, light roast. Fairly full bodied and rich, above average carb, more a red ale than a wit. Nice orange flavours from additions and hops, good balance with malt sweetness, warming but not overbearing winter beer. Good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Hazy orange pour with beige head. Really nice, fresh aroma, fruity and slightly estery. Taste leans towards an amber ale, quite bitter and hoppy. Overall it’s an interesting blend but definitely heavier on the amber ale flavor profile.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I like the beer a lot, but I wouldn’t consider it a winter warmer due to the lightness in color and heavy hops. the white is too light and the red ale is just hoppy. The beer is really tasty, but not to style. Opaque red with a nice dry finish. Tap

A hazy amber body with a scarce white head that leaves lacing on the glass. Nose has notes of lemon peels, caramel and white pepper. Taste is quite sweet with a mildly bitter finish. Medium carbonation and fairly rich palate. This is a bit too sweet for my palate but the aroma is nice and refreshing.
