Hazy bright amber color, with large creamy head. Strange aroma, apricot yoghurt (fruit and cream). Good malt flavor, with correct body strength, quite lean; the mouthfeel is rather round; medium sweetness; moderate bitterness, with faded but nice fruitiness, and some hop resins.
Surely a good beer, but this one as well is apparently too old.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (kindly shared by omhper, thanks!). Amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is fruity, some cookies, mild toffee and some herbal notes. Flavour is rather bitter fruity and floral in a nice way along with some tropical fruits as well as bready and sweet maltyness balancing it up. Very wellbalanced and pleasant IPA!

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, thanks Bov! Hazy pale amber, huge lively head. Rich aroma of pear and kiwi. Sweet with medium body and soft mouthfeel. Sugary with some honey, dough and peppery alcohol. Growing bitter finish. Pleasant hop aromas, but needs to lose sweetness to gain drainkability.

from Erzbierschof - hazy reddish beer under a huge creamy foam; strong fruity hops in the nose; quince, star fruit and citrus; a good malt backbone, tasty and lively, subtle but fair carbonation; a respectable bitterness; long hoppy finish, citrus, pine needles, quince and apricot - pleasant and to the point
