Pours deep amber with a large, lasting head. Nose shows caramel, pine and resinous hops. Also some nutty notes. Similar flavours; caramel, sweet bready malt and nutty notes with heavy resinous pine following. Finishes with a bold bitterness. Could use more carbonation.

cards04 (1639) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 15, 2012
Pours an orange/amber. Long lasting head....very attractive lacing. Aromas are very green. Hoopy, piney, weeds...some medicinal aromas with a bit of honey. Flavours are mostly floral and hoppy...not over powering though. Well balanced. Good.

In bottle at Craig’s. Pours a dark golden colour with a decent beige head. Aroma of fresh cut green hops, rocket, grapefruit, pineapple and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Nicely bitter.

Can tell this beer is a touch old because it has lost almost all bitterness. Nice looking orange beer with a frothy head. Aroma is faint citrus hops with caramel malt flavours. Taste is sweet malt with grapefruit flavours minus the bitterness. A touch of lemon zest is present. A bit of resin and pine hop flavours. A fairly complex beer. Finish is sweet. Not bad, but would have loved to have tried this fresh and bitter (I’m guessing it was bitter at one point). Palate is super creamy and delicious.

rarbring (1262) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2012
Aroma: Smelling funky, cheese, fermented strawberries, nettles and resin.
Appearance: A clouded amber brew, an off-white head with little lacing but good curtains.
Taste: Starting sweet toffee, cheese, grape-fruit, resin, oil and rubber.
Palate: Light carbonation, small bubbles, oily, a dry finish.
Overall: A complex, overpowering and intrusive hop character.
Note: Bottle 330 ml, at De Klomp tasting. Reviewed 2012-02-11.

Desverger (1713) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2012
(330ml bottle from Voldby Købmandsgaard, Hammel) Pours light brown/orange with an off white head with some lacing. Picked up fruity grapefruit/lemon/apple tastes, is nice and refreshing. Good stuff.
