3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled at Bioshop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Before pouring it strikes me that the design label makes it feel branded (=commerical) and I get negative vibes from it. It pours clear bright golden with rich, exceptionally firm head and slight sediment. The aroma holds grainy malt, honey and a twist of lemon. Faint citric hops leads onwards to a salty finish. Dryness, clean malt character and spritzyness lends it an elegance, but it somehow feels artificial - like a make-up. Somehow this is like Russian champagne.

330ml bottle. Hazy pale golden yellow colour with a big frothy white head. Aroma: citrus fruit, yeast, spice. Taste: citrus fruit, yeast, pale malt, spices. Dry, hoppy bitter finish. Medium body, fairly heavy carbonation - rather gassy/bubbly in the mouth but it settles down after a while. Nice brew.

Yellow, clear, with high, white, head which disappears pretty fast. In aroma sweet & sour, spicy with fruitiness reminding peach and plenty of tropical, citrus hoppy notes. In taste, there is ’belgian’ spicy & fruity traits with some malty background, it’s dry and crisp. Medium carbonation and easily drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
6.5%ABV. Belgian Pale Ale.
Poured out light gold. 6ºSRM.
Nose has some beery aromas. There may be some light formic acid as well. Light phenolic aroma on the nose. Overall a very refreshing nose on a pale ale.
The foamy head reminds me Delirum Tremens the first time I had it!
Mouthfeel is carbonated and beery. Palate has pale malt with water biscuits, saltines and a pronounced minerality to it, reminiscent of Perrier or San Pelligrino. Even some sea salt. Brief sweet malt. Some light wood near the middle with fresh wet pine or young oak or maybe cherry. Then the hoppy bitter that is solidly bitter but not a fresh hoppy bitter, closer rather to a perfumed, woody bitter of incense water or more appropriately what I imagine old bong water or hookah water to taste like.
Finish is actually brief for me with the bitter fading pretty quickly.
