Popped off the cap and picked up some green grass notes that surprised me at first, but they quickly faded into some funk barnyard notes. Then I start looking up to the light .... seeing a thin cloud with in the body that feels thin on the palate because of some candy sweetness. Appearance is a bit mind boggling to the taste so extra points for that. Otherwise if filtered it may look and smell a bit like a wine cooler (ducks) Just a bit too candy sweet. thinnly sticky. dry finish. The unfiltered is nice and the funk makes up for any lameness. As it warms up to the ending nice little sips of complexity between malts and hops taking over the sweet.

330ml bottle at the Hoppy Pub Thessaloniki. Clear amber copper color with off white head. Aroma is fruity, light malty and yeasty. Sweet and light bitter taste, more hoppy than the aroma. Light to medium body almost oily with average carbonation.

Bottle from brewery. Pours a very hazy red copper color with a small white head. Nose of caramel, and citrus. medium to full body. Bitterness on the finish. Soft carbonation. My least favourite of their beers.

cmc619 (433) - California, USA - OCT 25, 2014
2/3 on the minitour of the brewery. A really strong earth/dirt note that really hit over the top for me, combined with a too-bitter hop bite that wasn’t matched by aromatics.

Jimthechap (1790) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 11, 2014
Hazy amber with little in the way of head on the beer. In fact, the more that was poured out of the bottle, the uglier it got. Aromas of ripening stonefruit - nectarine, apricots and peaches with similar flavours. Not a bad sort of beer but nothing that would knock my socks off.

Bottle. Hazy copper with a big white head. Aroma and taste are sweet like Fruity Pebbles with some citrus and caramel notes. Rich mouthfeel with little carb. Alcohol is somewhat apparent. Not bad but a little unbalanced.

guil0000 (279) - New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 19, 2014
Pours a very hazy red copper color with a small white head. Nose of caramel, toffee, fruity ( ripe fruit, mandarin.) medium to full body. Bitterness on the finish. Soft carbonation. Quite good.

floydslip (202) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Hazy light amber beer with a medium foamy white head that has pretty good retention. Somewhat mild nose of sour yeast, a bit of citrus, and some pine resin. Flavor is crisp with a bracing bitterness counterbalanced by some sweet malt with woody undertones. Refreshing, drinkable beer that doesn’t stand out as unique, but is good quality.

Nordcore (1053) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle 33 cl. Brown, hazy with a short-lived white head. Fruity aroma, grapes, yeast and malt. Light bitter, medium sweet with a soft fruity end. Ok

giorgos_gtc (95) - GREECE - JUN 15, 2014
A mid range beer. Good to be combined with the start of a Friday’s night trekking. Its taste is something like a bitter orange or better grapefruit. Fairly good enough effort..

Armadill0 (284) - FINLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle. Yellow-brown, cloudy with a thick light brown head. Aroma has pine and ripe fruit. Taste has pine, citrus, orange and some wood. Oddly plastic on the aftertaste, turns properly bitter afterwards. Palate is just a bit too watery.
