Bottle from Systembolaget. Light amber color, frothy and lacy head. Hoppy aroma has citrus fruits, piney resins, dried apricots, kiwi, and floral honey notes. Some sweetish maltiness comes through, propably from wheat malts. Bitter taste, quite strudy maltiness is quite round. Medium sweet. Bitterish finish is slightly too round and "heavy", propably due to wheat malts. Now the hops are slightly masked. Soft, smooth palate, medium body.
