cloudy orange colour, fine dense head and a beautiful lace, deep fruity aroma (apple and litchies), yeasty, lot of carbonation, acidic with a robust finishing bitterness, medium-bodied, the finish is long, fruity and dry - refreshing and quite marvellous !

hazy golden-orange colour with a big white creamy head and a beautiful lacing; strong honeyish and bready aroma with light spicy notes (anise); very creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation; sweet with a robust malt body, a touch of finishing sourness brings some balance; long gready and spicy aftertaste - quite on the sweet side but very good

Very pale colour, white head. Citrus aroma, dito flavour. I'm sorry, but I can't understand why the other raters rate this beer so high. Never again.
