Bottle. Pours cloudy amber. Taste is fruity and clear with tones of honey. Body is full and malty. Aftertaste dry and hoppy. Leaves a nice feeling on the tip of tongue by its nice level of carbonation.

Bottle @ Donkey Brewing Santorini. Ramata, velata, schiuma bianco sporco, quasi beige, fine mediamente persistente. Aroma non troppo intenso ma fine. Caramello, fruttato di agrumi (scorza d’arancia), erbaceo da luppolo. Abboccata, molto per lo stile, caramellata, finale amaro ma senza eccessi, erbaceo, lungo e persistente. corposa, non molto calda, rotonda, piena, carbonatazione debole. Equilibrata.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cl bottle at Beer Time in Athens (€ 7.50 - WTF is up with that insane price?!?). BB 14.09.2016. Pours all foam at first, creamy white. As it slowly recedes, a dark amber, hazy body appears. The aroma is jammy fruity. Kissell... or sweet strawberry marmalade. Something strange about it. Not sure if the Belgian yeast. Sweet jammy marmalade and caramel flavour. Medium body. Dryish palate. Seems alright... rather mediocre, if not sub-par, which furthermore makes the price look outrageous. But, eh, in warm weather it’s perfectly drinkable.

Color amber-hazy. Nice malty aromal. Kind of bitter-sweet, nice taste in general with a medium, easy going body . Very good beer in general!

Bottle at a craft beer testing session. pours hazy amber with off-white head. Notes of spices, clove, grapes, some smokiness detected. Carbonation is a bit too much for my taste. Roasty malts, herbal notes, maybe pine.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle. Pours hazy red with a small whitish head. Aroma and taste of a bit of caramel, fruits, a bit of cherry?, and a hint of funk - but just a hint. Taste has a slight sweetness, but a stronger hoppy bitterness without being bitter. Medium mouthfeel, definitely carbonated.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle, thanks to Rouhlas, Pours murky brown with short-lived off-white head. Aroma is murky caramel and sweet malts. Taste is nutty, grainy, malty, some caramel and dried fruits. Not quite ’hip hoppy’ as the label says, but not unpleasant. Just a bit bland and lacking character.

Bottle brought back from Santorini. Hazy amber with little head. Aroma starts with sweet, yeasty fruit with some hops. Drinks like a malty Belgian ale. Not the style I expected, but nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy to cloudy light amber with a decent fluffy head. Aroma is malty, caramel. Medium sweet with an average bitter finish, actually some fruity american kind of hops, probably dry infused. Average carbonation, medium body. Quite ok, but neither really refreshing nor very complex.
Thanks to my sister for bringing me this from Santorini!
