bosta (115) - - JUN 22, 2013
500ml bottle (4,2% ABV). Pours hazy yellow with nice white head that gives plenty of lacing. Aroma is fruity (citrus and a bit of elder) and hoppy. The same goes for the flavor. It is fruity (citruses), light and refreshing. It has a modest bitter and dry aftertaste. This beer really delivers what it is advertise on the label. Overall a very refreshing summer beer.
