Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph. Enjoyed to the Christmas dinner.
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.
