Bottle. Pours yellow with a medium sized white head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is hoppy and fruity. Taste is unremarkable and of malt and fruits with many citrus notes. Aftertaste is a bit hoppy. Doesn’t feel like 8%. Easily drinkable but a bit boring.

markschiedon (222) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2013
Not so special aroma, some citrus. Beer is golden yellow with a firm white head. Pretty carbonated. In the taste it’s mainly the hopbitter that is present. Not much more, maybe some spices. You wouldn’t say it has 8% alcohol.

Straw yellow color with solid white head. Smell is citrus-like hops. Taste is a combination of the three kinds of hops used. Floral and citrus-like with a slight bitterness.
