Thoroughly enjoyed it. Strong malt and sweet aroma with some alcohol. Nice earthy copper color, almost like apple cider with a thick foamy head. Full mouth feel but lighter than expected. Good carbonation. Strong mix of caramelized malts with hoppiness and alcohol. There was a strong fruity esters component as well. Great example of the style.

Shared with EricTeusink. Thanks dude - straight from Brickstore’s cellar! Aroma is sweet light fruit, candy caramel, and still a bit of citrus hops on the nose. The taste is were an explosion of flavor occur. Even at a year old, I could not believe the amount of hops still in the taste. Really bright citrus American hops shine as a sweet candy caramel sweets swirls with some sweet breads, honey and light fruitiness. Good interesting stuff. Still blown away by the amount of hops in there.

750ml bottle @ Maunula beer tasting 091113. Ordered from Saveur Biere.
Hops and fruits at aroma. Dark red/brown copper colour. First taste was "punch". Much different than I expected on the basis of aroma. Hvedegoop beats this.
