slawek (218) - Kraków, POLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle. Clear, amber color, no head. Medium aroma of citrus and some perfumes. Dry taste with grassy, bitter ending. Unbalanced, but bitterness is becoming a bit unpleasant. Carbonation is too high, long, grassy bitterness. Nice, but i expected more.

MrHangover (2726) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle @ tasting, courtesy of Dennoman. Pours a clear golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is fairly buttery, citric, vegetables and grassy. Flavor rather bitter in a strange way, some woody notes, earthy touches and not really refreshing. The bitterness misses some crispy notes in it, very bland and rather boring actually.
