(50 cl bottle from Den Nordiske Ølhandel; Batch #755; BBD; January 25th 2017) Pours a slightly hazy amber, with frothy, white head and lively carbonation. Beautiful lacework, good retention and decent regeneration. Aroma is fresh and vinous with notes of saison yeast and some tropical fruits. Oily texture, medium body with a moderately bitter and astringent finish. Flavour follows the nose but has more herbal hoppy bitterness. An exciting and pleasant beer although I would prefer it with a little less ABV and hop bitterness and ever so slightly more aromatic hops. I guess the aroma would be more hop forward had I gotten it fresher. This one was brewed 12 months ago already.

Aroma was so fresh and amazing and the taste had just the right amount of bitterness and fruits in it to win over me. On the nose the aroma was very hoppy, exotic fruits, fresh grass, some yeast and spice. Full bodied with bitterness and lots of citrus in the body and a dry finish.

Has a hazy golden colour and a decent off white head which hangs around nicely. I really like aroma, it’s quite citrusy and fruity. The citrus taste also comes through, a bit like grapefruit for me. Good mouthfeel which matches well to the beer. Overall, I’d happily buy one again.

Kauge (760) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 24, 2015
Tap at Pudel in Tallinn. Hazy golden colour, head off-white, retaining and lacing rather nicely. Fresh fruity, citrusy, wheaty aroma. Tastes similarily, with an enjoyable juiciness to it. Acidic notes and grassy hoppiness in the finish. Medium dryness and thin carbonation. Did not notice the ABV when drank it - I’m now very much surprised to see it’s 7.5! A well done brew.
