Bottle from Thistle News, Aberdeen. It pours hazy golden with a thick white head. The nose is tangerine, orange, tinned fruit, straw, mild sulphur, farmyard and marmalade. The taste is pine, resin, orange, tangerine, sherbet, assertive bitterness, warming alcohol and marmalade with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty tasty stuff!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Kick. A small, white to off-white head sits on top of a hazy orange-golden body. The aroma is mostly fruity, tropical fruits, peaches and pineapples, pine cones and grass. Malty sweetness too. Quite bitter flavor with enough sweetness to bring some balance. Full body, soft carbonation. Mostly bitter finish, with lots of fruityness. Pleasant indeed, but not fantastic. 130620

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Yellow, hefe-hazy. Nose is super fruity hoppy. Tangerines, grapefruit, currants. Some pines, caramel malts and vanilla apricots. Mango, exotics. Obviously this is a hop-heavy drink, but I’m pleasantly surprised not to be overrun by green grassy leafyness. Body is full, bitter. Sweetish flavors, but leaves a dry bitter finish. Ok, but I prefer IIPAs filtered and sterile. Everything just gets amplified, which includes any yeasty residue.

Bottle@home. Copper haze. Small head. Red grapefruit. Intense bitter hopping masking the alcohol very well. A brew that evolves in the glas. Super.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2013 Tap (Pudel Bar, Tallinn) (5:4:4:3:9=2.5)
Massively sticky stodgy aroma. Almondy (german bock-like) grains. Sticky and sweet. Resiny stickiness too. Dirty bitterness in the finish. Too sweet and sticky. Heady, covers the alcohol only by overpowering it. Very disappointing. I pulled a pretty ugly face with every mouthful. Yes, even worse than normal!
Rerate: Tap (Pudel Baar, Tallinn) (5:4:6:3:12=3.0)
Still cloudy, and still has a distinctively plasticky aroma that I associate with heller bocks. Smooth palate, not so sticky. Full malty body, but the hops smother that, fruity, fleshy fruits (that’s in part the malt sweetness). No ugly faces this time. Not my style, but certainly adequate. Useful rerate.
Rerate: 330ml bottle (?, Tallinn) BB201503, Drunk201312 (6:4:6:4:13=3.3)
Poured much clearer - just a haze. Orangy straw, tight off-white head. Still getting that bocky-malt almond aroma, but not as much as before. Not quite so plasticky. For it’s strength, quite light in the mouth, pleasant carbonation. Again, that heller-bock maltiness in the retronasals. Simple malty body follows, but that’s drowned in the hops. Not quite as fruity as before, but this is a month older, maybe the hops are fading? Tingly bitterness, a touch fatty too in the finish. Covers the alcohol more subtly, definitely an improvement. Worth the re-rerate.
