Amazing aroma. A dry pilsner-ish aroma packed with hops! Citrus, apples, grapefruit, mangoes, pineapple, the works! Flavor is really good with a perfectly dry malty backbone packed with flavor. I get some sort of apple-ish flavor that i have not had in this kind of a beer before. It’s actually really good. Not the too-young-beer kind of apple flavor, but a nice one! American hops in high amounts here. Really good beer!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ home. clear light amber color and a medium white head. Dry fruit aroma that has red apples, pear, pine, apricots and some lemon and grass and herbs, with a sweet light caramel plus toast background. Nice balance! Dry and crisp flavor with pine,mango, hay and toast and then some caramel. Towards the finish a drier and saison-like taste of white pepper, wet hay, orange and grape and is coming through along with an increasing bitterness. Assertive and long lasting grape-like bitterness. A really good thirst quencher.

If mikkeller ruled the world, all lager would taste like this! Actually, you would guess its a hoppy ipa in a blind tasting, with the lager yeast coming through just at the end.
