Bottle from River’s Bend. Poured clear reddish amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex sour citrus yeasty aroma. Medium body. Flavor was full with sweet yeasty tone and spices with a moderate sweet finish and small alcohol bite. Good brew.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33L bottle. Amber red colour, a little hazy, almost no head. Rich aroma of malt and fruit, presence of banana and some earthy notes in the back. Flavour of malt and citrus, quite dry at the beggining but becoming sweetish, leading to a sweet aftertaste. Carbonation is strong but pleasant enough and the beer is extremely drinkable.

Sell this in bottles in my bar, we’ve also had it on draught - got through 3 30litre kegs inside a week! Quite sweet, toffee & banana flavours, with hints of liquorice. Colour is a deep, rich, amber with a strong sweet aroma. Taste not overpowering, quite easy to drink - once you’ve mastered the glass!

Loved it. The malt permeates and blends perfectly with carbonation. Not too spicy and the yeast was subdued. Loved the coppery color. Highly recommended.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. pours a hazy copper with an orange tinted tan head. smells of citrus and lemongrass with a bit of biscuity malt character. flavor is citrus, toast, yeasty spiciness, and some bitterness from the hops. very interesting flavor profile that fits somewhere between a Belgian Wit and a dubbel. some cinnamon flavor emerges mid-glass. finishes with some residual citrus and some hop bitterness. quite unusual and very interesting.

33 cl bottle at Bishops Arms, Karlstad. Cool glassware! It was the first time I drank it in these cool glasses. I remember this beer to be better than this though. The taste it malty with a nice citrus taste, but not that much taste like I thought the first time I was having this beer, but that’s probably due to a lot more experience since then. But, to sum it up, this is an easy drinking beer which deserves a good score!

Bottle. Amber with some yeast in it. The bottle was about 18 months old. Sweet malt but low on bitterness from the hops. A bit fruity.
Extra points for the nice glass! It looks nicer.
