Deep amber colour with a good amount of consistent foam. Faint aroma of berries. Great taste of raisins, malt and sugary treats, great balance. Treacherous, it good down very well and very quick… I loved it, will have more and buy it to friends. The design of the bottle itself is sufficient to give it a go.

Many thanks to ThirstyBird for sharing this bottle! Very great floral nose. The beer starts floral-intense, slightly sourish with an intense and earthy floralness. Nice fresh pine, floral intense, fresh and easy to drink with still a nice earthy aroma. The aftertaste is fresh, intense malty-earthy-dry with a nice pine-like floral hoppyness and a moderate bitterness.
