3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2013 300 ml bottle, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 8.5%
Deep orange colour on the body, a bit hazy. Nice two fingers tall snow white head, average retetnion, with a good lacing left behind.
Aroma is fruity, with peach notes, some yeast and light alcohol smell.
Very nice taste, a bit sweet at first, again with peach notes and a bit of bubblegum, turns to a nice hoppy bitterness straight away. Alcohol also traceablr on the taste, actually helps the bitterness to be even more pronounced.
Full body, average carbonation, quite dry on the palate.
I hadn’t had this for a long time and I surely don’t remember it to be that good, but yeah, this beer is a solid one.
