Tart gooseberry and soft peach on the nose. Gooseberries and fruit to taste, before an intense bitterness that’s as sharp as a macaw’s screech!

Bamsen78 (5010) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2014
Bottle from Ales By Mail. Pours clear golden with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit and hops, with touches of yeast. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with fruity and malty notes. Lingering, bitter afteraste. A little decarb, possibly because it is several months aftert the BBD. Still, quite okay.

AlbionOakley (32) - Poulton, Lancashire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2014
Nice, crisp and refreshing. Very hoppy but with a bit of a chalky bitterness which puts it behind the same brewery's citra effort ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MichaelAwesome (6434) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle from Witrose in East Cowes shared with McTaps. Highly drinkable piwo with big aromas of spruce, lemons, other citrus fruits and a bit of hay. Bitter ending which is is equalized by a fine sweetish forefrunt. Cripsy, special, amazing piwo which is a bit unusual.

McTapps (6448) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose in East Cowes. Beer pours out in a light hazy golden colour with low, airy head and crisp body. Aroma of hops and spruce. Taste of fresh hops, mandarinas, citrus, spruce, pine, mild herbs and light peppers. Wonderful refreshing. Loved it due to its well-balanced bitterness and aromatic finish.
