Bouteille de 500 ml dégustée le 22 juin 2016 au Pub Pit Caribou de Montréal au coût de $10. Bière blonde dorée voilée. Assez effervescente, bulles moyennes, avec un col mince off-white assez persistant. Légère odeur d’agrumes (clémentines) et de caramel. Saveur légère d’agrumes, de malt sucré. Amertume pas très intense pour le style. (Note: Bière non filtrée ni pasteurisée, bouteille meilleure avant le 24 novembre 2016).

mice (804) - FINLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Kirkas, kullankeltainen olut kivalla kestävällä sentin tiiviillä ja pienikuplaisella vaahtokerroksella, joka jättää myös pitsiä. Tuoksu eksoottisen hedelmäinen, sitruksinen, mutta myös makean maltainen ja karamellinen. Maku eksoottisen hedelmäinen, havuinen ja maltaisen makea. Loppupuolella katkerampaa greippistä otetta. Melko täyteläinen runko, kuiva ja katkera jälkimaku. Lopussa havuisuutta ja pihkaa kivasti. Tässä on oikeastaan yllättävän hyvä liitto makeampaa karamellisuutta ja katkeraa pihkaista havuisuutta.

mR_fr0g (9266) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
Bottle at home picked up from beer gonzo. A slightly hazed bright golden orange coloured pour with a lasting sticky white head. Aroma is nice fresh zippy zesty lemon, woodland pine, soft white bread. Little orange rind on the nose as well. Flavour is composed of semi crisp bready grains, orange rind, pine, hint of cut grass. Crisp and a little mineral in the finish. Hides the 7% pretty well. Palate is medium light bodied, semi sweet with a crisp finish. Very well balanced and drinkable.
