COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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 (3142) - 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 (31) - 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

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.
