1.5L bottle on Christmas Day, 2012 vintage. Poured a slightly hazy ruby color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was notes of citrus, pine resin. Flavor had some light spicy notes, some earthy malts and plenty of light sweet raisin notes, touch of orange zest. Warming.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aged 2 years (2011 vintage). Slightly hazy copper with a thin white head. Nose is herbal and bright fruity, like cherries covered in juicy NZ hops with a bit of Christmas spice. Flavor is herbal and champagne like with dry esters and a earthy hop note that’s a bit like pine and a bit like mistletoe. Cheerful and sippable.

Pours cloudy dark orange. Large frothy rocky creamy off-white head lasted through the last sip. Aroma is hoppy fruity and plenty of spices. Especially orange peel and coriander. Flavor much the same. Sweet and bitter. Spices. Wheat. Alcohol present but not in the way. Tasty and drinkable.

Aroma: Caramel, lots of hops, grape. Taste: exactly the same as in aroma. You are drinking what you are smelling :) I found my new favorite beer- which I would love to have 50 bottles at home. Awesome balance of taste, smell, aftertaste, appearance. If you pour this beer quickly in the glass,white thick foam seems is going to remain forever.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Frugtig, wit duft med en undelægning af meget let karamel.
Mørk gylden og uklar i bunden.
Meget humlet og imødekommende bitterhed. Fyldig og hvedet. Rund og kun let sød. Frugtig kompleks.

Smells like sticky pot. Changes to orange peals as it warms up.
Thick and malty- med bodied. Not as complex as 2012 ver. Good and easy to drink.

Big bottle. Hops, orange, light caramel on the nose. A little effervescent, long finish. Spices on the palate: clove, coriander, white pepper, pine. Lots of fruit on the finish, and not too sweet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
1.5L Bottle at Aunt Robin’s for the holidays. Pour is murky amber orange with a big tan head and great lacing. Fruity, tangy, somewhat bready, citrusy, orange peel, doughy, and vanilla in the aroma. Taste is grassy, lightly tart, earthy, orange, goopy, bready, and sweet vanilla. Medium body with soft carbonation. OK, but really nothing special.
