355ml bottle from Alko. Poured amber, slightly unclear with a thick creamy white head. Piny, lemony, sweet tropical fruity aroma. Quite juicy stuff. Feels somewhat thin for the abv, but makes it very drinkable. Hoppy, citrusy, floral flavors with a dry, slightly woody finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Alko. Pours hazy grayish orange with a strong orange-tinged head. Nose of grapes, citrus and caramel. Oh boy what a nice amount of grapes! Malty body with licorice, some alcohol and the some caramel. Bitter but not as sweet as nose might have hinted. Crisp carbonation with a sticky body. The nose had me expecting a much better experience.

Rated ma 04.01.2016.
tap@gallows. Yellow light hazy. Citrussy nose, some hayish, green tart berries on nose, farmy/saisonny feel. Med bodied, crisp, bitter, slight tart even. Golden malty, dry honey, citrus, some tropical yellows. Feels rather belgy ipa. Apparantly not intended as such, guessing the keg hasnt had an easy trip. The finish is pretty harsh actually.
