Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2011
It’s hazy, warm golden with a creamy head, and a fruity and very delicious aroma. The flavour is moderately sweet and has a nice, dry bitterness and notes of caramel, loads of fruits like papaya, peach and pineapple, citrus and spruce. The finish is dry and bitter. It’s a very well-balanced and harmonic beer.

FatPhil (9260) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 15, 2012
500ml bottle (Old Bank, Turku)
Poured by the barmaid with all the crud, so not necessarily as clean as it could be. Hazy orange, small persistent head. Slightly messy stodgy components to the aroma, but a plasant caramelly sweetness, and good sticky fruity hops. Comes alive in the mouth, a veritable smorgasbord of sticky fruity hops and juicy caramelly malts. Nice bitter tingle in the finish. Big fat and juicy, and feels like one you could return to pint after pint.
