Hazy golden colour with a fine white head. What a lovely hoppy nose. Fresh and a mild richness. Lovely fresh and mixed flavour. A bit fruity, lots of citric hops, mild malt sweetness and some spices. Lovely IPA ;-)
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Halden, Norway. Batch #671

10/4/2011 7:51:30 AM Bottle from Bierkoning. Bright orange body with puffy head. Nose is hoppy and fruity with plenty of citrus. Taste also lots of citrus and bitter finish. Quite an interesting blend, that I liked but perhaps too much citrus for me.

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Bottle... Pours cloudy and golden with a large, fluffy, white head. The aromatics are citrusy and fruity with a note of pear and a hint of spice. Full-bodied with dancing carbonation. The flavor is tangy, fruity and bready with a moderate level of crusty bitterness. Dry, medium-bitter finish.

Jado (719) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - DEC 9, 2015
330 ml bottle. Cloudy gold body topped by a thick and lasting white head. Aromas of barnyard funk, lemon, flowers and pepper. Taste is sharply bitter overlaid with funky Belgian yeast flavours with citrus and spice poking through. Fairly clean finish with a mildly spicy aftertaste. Great food beer.

DutchMark (310) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2015
Very nice. Deep yellow with a huge white head and medium carbonation. Fresh floral aroma with white wine and citrus. Flavor is a bit sour grassy with citrus yeast and bitter hops. Lingering bitter hops in the very dry after taste. Quite delicious easy to drink ale.

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2015
Rating #1157 06.07.2014 - Beer seminar at Coop MacTaggart. Pours a hazy straw colour with a frothy white head and lots of lace. Aroma is of farmhouse yeast, pepper, citrus, soft fruits - Clean mouthfeel, medium carbonation, mild alcohol warmth. Taste is a crisp sweetness, tempered with herbal notes, mild pepperiness, mild sourness from the yeast. Great saison. Unreal aroma and depth of character.

Fashawn (516) - Montesarchio, ITALY - OCT 6, 2015
caramel, medicine, Savage yeast and Grass for the aroma. Lacks elegance, not much complexity. Deep amber with thiny white head. Medicine with Burns caramel, no much flavour. This is Just a Corpse.
