3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light amber with big fluffy unstable off white head. Massive hops with tropical fruits, tangerine, lime, flowery and light resin. Then a light malty body with a touch of nuts and caramel, but the whole ale is quite thin and dry and the malt backbone takes a backseat. Therefore mainly bitter and slight tartness and the sweetness is very light. Light to medium bodied with quite a lot of carbonation. Pretty nice stuff for the abv.

50 cl. bottle split by 3 @ “Memorabel Tastingkje”. Thanks to tderoeck! Average creamy off-white head. Good lacing, lightly cloudy amber. Nose is typical pine resin & grapefruit peel hops mixed with some herbal notes (les usual) touch more malt presence, cereal. Taste is touch sugar, bread, cereal + 50/50 herbal + pine & grapefruit peel hops, herbal lingers more in the finish, faint vanilla upfront. Medium body, touch malt feel, good carbonation. Standard fare but well-done and definitely satisfactory.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
BOTTLE 50CL from Cunningham. Thanks, Henrik.
Look: hazy amber, light tan frothy head.
Aroma: delicate hops, not too intense, tropical fruit, flowers, no resin, a touch of citrus.
Taste: a strange acidic bite at the start, despite the low carbonation, tropical, fruit, low-to-moderate bitter finish. medium body. Nice, but not earth shattering.

500mL bottle batch 1066-A best before 06-11-14. Guess I should've paid attention to the date (that isn't always on bottles) before buying it at Sherbrooke AFTER the best before date. Cloudy orange with a bunch of suspended particles. Still a good amount of tropical fruit, pine, and citrus aroma. Taste is sweet with a hearty bitterness. A bit watery.
