Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (grain, bread), lightly hoppy (flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Somewhat grainy and dull, but ok.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(on bottle) A very vague sent of hops hits my nose and I think that this is not going to be a very "Exkluziv" experience Nice and golden yellow, but the mouth is not much either...intil the hard bitterness sets in at the finish. Very heavy hopping here and it tends to turn acidic and tart, almost like a wallnutschnaps. Never tasted that ina beer before, not for liking though.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours deep gold with a big white head. Yeasty bread dough, with alcohol aroma. Grassy and quite bitter. Lots of herbs and medicine. Hard so see the hops and malt through the mouth numbing herbs. Feels like I was just at the dentist. Tastey, finishes a bit light and sweeter in the finish.
