3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Haandfest 2013. This is a crystal clear dark golden one with a heavy lacing and sidesticking just off-white top. The nose has tones of earthy hops, sticky caramel, red fruits and a little bit of snow. Really good bitterness in this! The mouthfeel is sticky and oily and the carbonation is just prickling and soft. Ripe fruits, grassy and hedge-like bitterness from the hops. Some summery strawberries in the finish. A fine dripa. 25.05.2013
