Marko (3965) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 21, 2014
At the "expensive beer tasting" with heavy, hrabren and ogivlado. Poured a dark amber body with a small white head that went away slowly. SSweet aroma, dull maltiness, some alcohol, but some fruity tropical hop too. Sweetish, mild tropical fruit note in the taste, going into a dull herbal bitterness, good fruity notes, some reminiscent of gummibears. Some alcohol, slightly too much for a second. Though it’s close to going the sweet & sticky way, it’s saved by a fresh citric note, edged with lemon gummie bears. The bitterness here is only medium. Oof... I was expecting something I’d love, got something that went from a disappointment back to "kinda like it". It’s a very good beer, and I might be ever so slightly underrating it, but I don’t feel comfortable giving it more than this.

RexTalionis (2515) - FINLAND - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours unclear amber in color with a white head. Tropical notes, some grapefruit and funkyness in aroma. Sweet malty notes, bit of citrus, apricot jam and yeasty spicyness in taste at first. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. More leaning to some tropical fruityness, funkyness and grapefruity bitterness in the end though.
