Cloudy golden color. Crazy hop aromas. Fruity, fresh hop aroma and flavor. The malty sweetness is countered by the spicy flavors of the yeast. This beer is a very complex blend of American hoppiness and old Belgian ales. I really like this beer.

750 ml bottle. I’m pretty sure I got this from a trade with deyholla. Thanks Derek! HHOK XVI.
Cloudy deep golden colour with a small white head.
Fruits, NZ notes, grapes, citrus and pine as well as spicy and peppery hops, yeast, mild sourness and grainy malt in the aroma. Great! Fruity hops, spices, grainy malt, yeast, NZ hops, grapes and soap in the flavour. Tasty. I really like the Prairie flavour.

Delicious surprise courtesy my Secret Santa. Thanks! Great beer! Aroma was big and full. Strong peach,mango and tangerine (just as the description says). Pour was a nice hazy light bubbly gold with a one finger white head. Taste was delicious. Juicy light fruits (the same peach, mango and tangerine) intermixed with a nice drying grassy hop flavor. Would be a great summer beer. Mild carbonation.

Bottle 75 cl. Pours a clear deep golden with a lacing white head. Lovely, tropical aroma with what appears like a Bretty edge. Medium body, solid malt base with a lot of great exotic fruit accents - very sophisticated. Some Belgian yeast notes coming through with a bitter finish and some phenols. But lovely throughout. 180214

(bottle) pours a slightly hazy deep golden colour with a frothy off-white head. juicy aroma of orange peel, mango and heavy passion fruit, slightly resinous, with a hint of herbal hops, honey, pale malts and grape juice. flavour is the same, heavy tropical fruit and grainy müsli, with more maracuja, fresh peaches, herbal hops and a dry, light-bitter finish. medium-bodied with soft carbonation. awesome balance and drinkability!

Cloudy gold, with a thick white head. Big grass and peach aroma, very fragrant. Wow, not overly hopped, very nice balance, subtle stuff. Again grass, peach, lingering dryness but not too bitter. Excellent beer.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Look: Pours with huge, thick (medium sized bubbles), off-white (light yellow hue) head. It has slow retention, mostly diminishing. Medium thick layer stays on top for the ride and leaves a fair amount of lacing. Color on first pour is low hazy golden (apricot, pink hue), cloudy as fck on the second pour.
Smell: Dominant apricots then some peach, tangerine, citrus, zest and lighter tropical fruits, pine, noble hop. Light acidity, sharpness suits it very well - together with apricots make it a superb fresh smell. Sweet caramel lingers around also some light funkiness, earthy, herbal yeast. Outstanding, fresh, complex.
Taste: Pine, grapefruit, zest, noble hop notes rise a bit compared to smell. Apricots still dominant. Some earthy, acidity yeast notes too. Everything is connected with well balanced, light to medium caramel, herbal honey sweetness. Also light spice to be found. Medium pine, grapefruit bitterness stays for a while.
Mouthfeel: Relatively crisp, medium body, lightly dry with fair amount of carbonation. Maybe, not sure, some warming alcohol right at start, but goes away very fast.
Overall: Love this one, fresh yet complex and offers a lot to observe and play with. Everything in good balance with nice smooth apricot notes in front.
