What beautiful aroma, pineapple and maybe some grapefruit all around. Wish my house could smell like this when I wake up. The beer itself is warming and has a slight bitter finish. Tastes very American to me, which is a good thing. Bottle from De Bierkoning.

Bottle thx to Benzai. Ruby colour with a small off-white head. Smells some hops, bit malty, slightly like a new plastic shopping bag. Tastes very bitter, the same plastic bag taste like in the smell, hops, sweet. It has a weird taste and the best way i can describe it is plastic shopping bag. Full body, soft carbo.

Almost clear reddish appearance, small off-white head. Aroma of red fruit, hop. Red fruity hops dominate the taste, with some malts beneath them. Nice beer, though I had hoped for something better.
