Yellow body, white head. Aroma is excellent, exotic fruits, bitter citrus, papaya. Just on the edge of going too far. Flavour is first nice fruity allover, the it starts to turn floury bitterness. Bit disappointment after such a fine aroma. One of the best aromas there is.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. BB 2014. (Kihoskh) Copenhagen, Denmark.
Hazy yellow golden colour with small creamy white head.
Aroma is perfect. Fruits, urinal and resin hops. Bitterness. Perfect I said.
Flavour is just a notch too dense. Deep resiny hoppy bitter flavour. Earthy notes. Farmhouse’s there too. Flavour isn’t that balanced.
