W końcu trafiłem na piwo, które prezentuje możlwości niemieckich chmieli. piękny zapach mandarynek, cytrusów i żywicy. obłędna piana, piękny kolor.
Jest słodowo, ale w tle wyraźnie wyczuwa się cytrusy, zwłaszcza obłędne mandarynkowe, końcówka goryczkowa, przyjemna, niezalegająca. pije się bardzo przyjemnie. Świetne piwo.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle from Les Vignerons, served in a nonic half pint glass. Dark sunrise orange, pretty hazy, with a nice, creamy and persistent off-white head. Fruity nose but not as intense and fresh as I was hoping, notes of citrus, slightly tropical, some caramel malts presence, little nuttiness, a hint of soap. It doesn’t really get better in the mouth, very malt forward, decent bitterness but not that fruity nor hoppy. Nutty, slightly toasted, perhaps also resinous in the far background. Pleasent floral and earthy aftertaste, but the alchool could have been better hidden. Average carbonation, medium to full body, cramy texture. Had higher expectations about this one, so so.
