reebtogi (5347) - Edmonton, Alberta, - FEB 10, 2013
660ml bottle pours a slightly hazy straw color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and pine with some light grains and hints of pineapple. Taste is a citrus and pine hop bitterness with some light malty and fruity sweetness with a hint of tart from the pineapple. Very nicely balanced brew with a light body and moderate carbonation. A fully flavored beer which satisfies the palate while being easy to drink. Very well done.

GoufCustom (1407) - HONG KONG - APR 19, 2016


330 ml can bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Looks: Cloudy hazy light golden with lumps of yeast particles; Less than one quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Excellent sticky lacing and zero carbonation.

Aroma: Strongly fragrant and sweet Ale malt, with passion fruits, papaya, mango, floral nectar, honey, yeast, lemon zest and strong fresh grass.

Taste: Mid to light sweet fair Ale malt, with strong grapefruits, strong floral, molasses, resins, dry biscuits, yeast, strong lemon, strong biter hops, strong sharp grass.

Body: Close to light body. Slick and fairly oozy palate.

Mouth Feel: Fairly good Ale maltyness in a thin but very slick background. Very intense citrus flavors in solid grapefruits, strong lemons and sharp grass. Low sweet, quite Oozy and yeasty. Very refreshing!

Hoppiness: Passion fruits, papaya, mango, floral nectar, lemon and fresh grass in nose. Strong grapefruits, floral, resins, strong lemon and sharp grass in taste; Bitterness is strong for a lasting, very high astringent bitter sweet finish.

After Taste: Dry. Citrusy and strong bitter to mouth.

Comments: The brewer wants us to guess the hops here (sans Riwaka), and my two cents are mixes of Motueka and Nelson Sauvin. Anyway, I am surprised by its intense sweet tropical fruit aroma, and very strong citrusy hoppy taste all the way. It looks light but nothing wimpy in all aspects. A winner!

procraste (441) - FRANCE - APR 17, 2016
Jolie robe pâle avec son petit col de mousse fine ... amère citron / pamplemousse ... Classique ... Bien élevée & agréable à boire avec son faible ABV ... Finalement assez anodine ... Ni mieux ni moins bien que d’autres en somme

mateuszk (1583) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 11, 2016
Citrus and zest in aroma backed by old socks note. Fruity and citrusy in taste. Light bodied, fizzy carbonated, crisp. Finish is bitter. OK session beer ruined a bit by the of flavour aroma.

Puszka nabyta na Warszawskim Festiwalu Piwa 2016. Kolor jasnozłoty, mętnawy, piana niezbyt a raczej średnia. Aromat cytrusów i goździków, smak owocowy z cytrusami, orzeźwiające. Goryczka dość mocna, grapefruit. Dobre pijalne piwo.

Swaroga (1949) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 19, 2016
Cloudy light yellow color with a small but creamy head. Aroma has a distinct citrus peel, mango, pineapple, pine, resin, sponge cake and cat piss aroma. Mostly dry with medium strong bitterness. The bitterness has bay leaf and grapefruit peel notes and it’s lasting. Overall easy to drink and quite hoppy. Good one if you don’t mind a typical UKs cat piss tang to it.
