2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A 0.5l bottle. This is a clear deep golden one with a small really big bubbly off-white top. Dammit this smell of wet dog. Wet schaefer. Oh my this is not god at all. Fruit beer? Well, perhaps the dog ate a fruit before they put him in the mash. Thank god it tastes a little better. It’s really soft on the carbonation and light oily on the mouthfeel. Have to admit that I was serious reluctant to tasting this after that aroma, but it’s actually not all that bad in the taste. Would never have guessed that it was grapefruit here, more needles nope and ripe melon. Well hopped with bittering hops and a light malty sweetness. Actually not that bad at all, but the aroma? Can’t stop thinking about that poor dog.. Well, it’s perhaps not the worst way to go? 16.05.2013

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Slightly hazy deep golden color, weak head. Aromas of nutty and honeyish malt as well as grapefruit. Honey, grapefruit, nuts. Not sweet like many fruit beers, which is good. Does not taste bad but leaves cold.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle. Mostly clear orange color. Minimal white head, little bits of lace. Kind of an older english malt type flavor, little musty. Some grapefruit juice, but way less zesty than expected. Some malty english-style hops. Sweeter taste. Lightly bitter. Medium body. Lighter, smooth carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Not a fan of this. Thought maybe I could polish a whole 500ml bottle myself, but now I’m looking for people to give the other half of the bottle away to

50 cl bottle from Meny Liertoppen. Pours a bit hazy light orange with small white head. Fruity aroma of grapefruit and other citrus. Fruity/zesty taste. Light body, heavy carbonation, long strange bitter finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A slightly cloudy, dark yellow beer with a quite weak and white head. Aroma is quite mild, but fresh, fruits, malts and red grapefruits. Taste is quite dry and biscuity, some fruits and artificial like grapefruits. In the aftertaste there are some bitterness and citrusfruity sourness. Light+ bodied, slightly harsh carbonation. The grapefruits are tastefull, but they are not fit in the entirety with balance.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours cloudy orange with little carbonation or head. Aroma is breast and slightly fruity, similar to a wheat beer. Flavor is bitter and slightly sour, with a lingering bitter finish. Mouth feel is flat and thin. A timid and not very satisfying beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aromat silnie grejfrutowy. W smaku bardzo gożkie, a przynajmniej jak bitter. A spodziewałem się słodkawego piwa owocowego, tym bardziej byłem mile zaskoczony. Jedno z nielicznych piw owocowych które są gożkie z którym się zetknąłem. Wygląd po przelaniu jest niezbyt atrakcyjny, piana tylko na centymetr i jest gruboziarnista, w ciągu mniej niż minuta znika.

Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms, Bristol, November 2012. Gold with a slight white head. Lots of grapefruit and not much else. One dimensional to say the least.
