3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Crispy, soapy and well carbonated. A beer to quench the thirst. Dry and moderately bitter. Hops are citrusy and aromatic like US hops. It reminds an American Pale Ale but with an extra dryness and a light funkyness. The strong carbonation is just right for this beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ BBB. Pours hazy deep golden with a rather big frothy and fluffy offwhite head that slowly dissipates while sticking to the glass leaving some thick lacing and trace. Smell is fruity and slightly funky with crackers, pink grapefruit juice, pineapple, star fruit, lemon grass, hay, pine needles, dry soil, barnyard, white pepper corns and lemon zest. Taste is bitter, fruity and tiny funky with crackers, grapefruit juice, pineapple, papaya, star fruit, freshly cut grass, pine needles, dry soil, minerals, barnyard, pepper corns, kumquats and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry, tiny astringent and light bodied. Finish is bitter with crackers, grapefruit, pineapple, grass, pine needles, dry soil, minerals, barnyard, kumquats and lemon zest. Refreshingly dry, fruity and slightly funky offering. Nice!
Re-rate! Second glass! Yum-a-dum!

C’est le clone d’une vieille Orval. Les yeux fermés je n’aurais probablement pas fait la différence avec cette légendaire trappist

Af krana á KEX. Tap takeover í gangi, ég sit við barinn og reyni að sannfæra næsta mann um að þetta sé ekki sá sami og cloud 9 wit. Vel þurr og mátulega beiskur oní það, brettið gengur vel samanvið en heildarútkoman er ekkert voða spennandi?

Oh boy. It’s one of the best farmhouse pale ale I’ve ever drunk. Great aroma of fruit and funky; awesome taste which brings total refreshness. Highly recommended one.
