Pours redish-brown with a lot of head. Pretty carbonated. Smell is very pleasant, citrusy. Yaste is mild, not aggressive. The hoppy aftertaste evolves slowly and with excellent notes of freshness. A very good beer!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, hoppy aroma, full of herbs and resin accompanied by dried fruits in the background. Intense and rich, great aroma. Pours clear, red with rich head leaving a very nice lacing. Taste is rather malty, with hints of caramel. good bitterness, light sweetness. medium carbonation. Finish could have been better, it’s a bit too long and stays on the palate - the only downside. Other than that, it’s a very good beer.
