3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden, very large head that lasts. Aroma is grass, bread, lightly fruity with a little bit of yeast. Medium to light body, fairly high carbonation. I really wanted to like this more.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 37,5 cl) Hazy, golden with a rough, off-white head. Aroma of malt, flowery hops and a little yeast. Medium body with a very soid malt base, a heavy carbonation with huge bubbles and a little yeast. Very flowery hopping that also leaves a distinct bitterness. Huge yeast sediment. Exciting. 050208

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (750ml). Poured a hazy orange color with a tinge of brown and a large frothy head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of honey with hints of grapes and some grassy hops. Flavor was of tropical fruits such as passion fruit with a decent bitterness, some honey and a spicy/peppery finish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation, dry texture, creamy mouthfeel and a good finish.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2008 Bottle (750ml champagne-style), poured a cloudy pale gold with a white foamy head. A pleasant aroma, with both fruity and flowery characteristics, as well as an evident yeast presense - citrus fruit being the most dominant. Effervescent on the palate, though reasonably smooth with that citrus again coming through well. The finish releases a more earthy malt palate. A soft mouthfeel, with some qualities that are reminiscent of a Belgium blond ale.

3.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 20/20
Overly fizzy. Dry and grassy-herbal. It’s almost got some peppery flavors. About US$6.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml bottle - peppery straw golden colour, huge rocky pure white head formed. Light spicy peppery hop aromas waft past. Very well carbonated and that is the first ’hit’ dry all through, grapefruit like pith finish. Some pepper and a touch of lighter citrus in the mix. Premium price and this one has delivered although earlier samples I’ve had have been far from worth the money.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of light sweet malt and citrus, perhaps floral hop. Hazy golden color with a decent white head. Medium body with fizzy, approaching creamy, carbonation. Flavor is interesting and complex light fruit. Definitely some citrus. The finish is pretty dry, lightly bitter, crisp and clean. It is very good. Perhaps in the top ten lagers I’ve ever had. Maybe better than that. The bitter really persists in the long finish.
