Wunderbar in der Frucht, etwas Sirup dahinter, heftige bitterkeit, dafür herausragend im Hopfen. Stark, aromatisch, vollmundig. Gute Sache !

ON Tap Pivo&Burger fest Ljubljana 19.7.2015: Pours golden amber haze colour with white creamy head. Aroma is without notice of an alcohol and is one of the greatest parts: very strong, fruity sweet notes. flavor is somehow in the shadow of aroma: But still very proper: Firstly fruity sweet with long lasting dry, bitter finish. Hop bitterness is very well balanced with malt sweetness, namely is not too exaggerated.
