4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden. Aroma is a bit thin, some floral notes and caramel sweetness. Colour is very orange, quite clear and the foam is thick and creamy. I must say I really enjoyed the look of this beer. Taste is extremely bitter, mouth-twistingly bitter both on the onset and in the aftertaste. Very pleasant beer to enjoy slowly.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at SBWF 2010. Very pale for it’s style, but taking a sniff reassures you didn’t get the wrong beer. The aroma has a big dose of clean, fresh tropical fruits. Needs some temperature to live up, but when it does, it’s good stuff.
