lusikka (6206) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2013
Draught @ Black Door, Helsinki. Pours a hazy orange amber colour with a small head. Aroma of strong juicy fruits, nettles and grapefruit. Flavour of juicy fruits again, floral hops, grapefruit, caramel and biscuity maltiness. Soft carbonation and a bitter juicy finish. Clean and tasty.

jookos (2077) - FINLAND - JUN 25, 2013
bottle. Orange hazy. Initially quite fruity hoppy nose - a bit of oranges, grapefruit, gooseberries, grassyness. later more toasted caramel malts. Body is dry. bitter, a bit sharp, harsh. Loads of hops, bready malts. Dry finish. Ok, but a bit too sharp for me.

Keg at Crown and Anchor. Pours a hazy orangy colour with thin white head. Aroma is slight tropical fruit with a slight cat piss edge and some mild funkiness. It's pretty good. Some pineapple, grapefruit and a dry bitter finish. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at the Hanging Bat. Had this many times at the Bat and always good on keg here. Never had in bottles tho as many here have... Always a pleasure this one. Easy, fruity goodness all round with that cheesy undercurrent thatís hard to nail. Hazy orange,sitting in a bright window on a summerís afternoon. Funky fruit and summer breezes. Cool and still musky fruit pond in sunshade. Tickle on back of knees. Orchards on acid.

Pyrmir (3319) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2013
On tap. Hazy orange with white head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, grain and ash. Taste is ashy, malt and grape notes. Odd but tasty

This is going down particularly well with some Digger Barnes. Iím going to return the favour by giving Owen some DFL. Lost Cause.

DanielBrown (3782) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle at The Victoria, Birmingham. Really very good indeed. Thick, juicy hops which roll around your mouth like marbles. Full flavoured from nose to tail. Like it ale ot.

Idiosynkrasie (3730) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 13, 2013
330ml bottle. Hazy dark orangey golden colour with small to average, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Hoppy aroma has notes of tangerine, kumquat, grapefruit and pine, a slightly herbal overtone, some buiscuit in the caramely malt basis. Taste is herbal hoppy with a strange spicy touch that overstrains my ability of description, kind of soapy coriander or so. Overall OK.
