3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught at Kaisla) Poured hazy amber with medium sized, dense and white head. Aroma contained citricness, grapefruit and malts. Palate was medium bodied and stinging with medium carbonation. Flavours were citricness, fruitiness, grapefruit, some pine, toffee and bitterness. Aftertaste contained bitterness and pine resin. The bitterness unfortunaly was too close being acrid. Otherwise this was quit good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
First beer proper of 2010. Pours a beautiful burnished orange under a thick collar, whitening the glass with lace. Pungent hop-drenched aroma of orange peel, lemon and lime jelly, pollen, spliff, celery...Some almond peeping through under the head. Big, bitter, mouth-drying chalkiness a bit HTDC; bitter orange and quinine with digestive and nut husk traces. Not quite as floral and mandarin juicy as promised by the aroma. Belgian condition+boatload of pungent US hops should, but doesn’t quite = sex in a glass.
