Fashawn (439) - Montesarchio, ITALY - AUG 15, 2015
giallo chiaro con schiuma bianca non particolarmente persistente. bollicine in libertà, la birra è limpida e piacevole da vedere, anche se la schiuma così poco presente non la rende perfetta. Al palato è un avventura, profumo intenso e nitido, anche abbastanza vario. Dal Kiwi e anans iniziali, si passa subito alle note di ago di pino, scorza d’agrumi, uva spina e melone retato. Bellissimo bouquet di odori, magari non il massimo della persistenza ma sulla varietà e sulla pulizia c’è da togliersi il cappello e rimanere ad occhi chiusi ad immaginare un insieme spaziale di frutta, fresca e buona per la bella stagione. In bocca ha una leggerà acidità iniziale, data dalla componente agrumata. pompelmo rosa, direi. Anche l’uva acerba, l’uva spina, risaltano. Amaro presente, dato dalla scorza d’agrumi, con un passaggio blando e calcolato dall’iniziale sapore di pompelmo al complesso d’uva e la leggerissima nota fruttata. Amare, si congeda secca, molto secca. Il ritorno è di uva dolce, nel retrogusto, per una birra complessa nonostante il tenore alcolico contenuto. In bocca è leggera, ma non acquosa. Sempre bene legata, coerente, ha una carbonatazione media, percettibile ma che non disturba mai la bevuta. In definitiva un’ottima birra, di quelle che si lasciano bere con molto, molto piacere.

On tap.Nice hazy Light Yellow color. Expected a lot of hop flavor but they didn’t arrived. A little bit watering. Not an impressive beer.

Pours really classical golden, bit of white foam but not much of it. Aroma is very hoppy, even fruity - but dry. Nelson is coming through and contributes to "full" fruity character this beer has. Taste is hoppy, light, and fully enjoyable. This could be called also a session IPA I guess, only much better balance compared with the most session IPA’s that I have had.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2015
On tap at Haand Festival. An orange colored, unclear beer with a small, white head. The aroma is of the citrusy kind, orange peel mostly, with some pale malts. It’s quite bitter on the palate, with a touch pale malts. Orange peel. It’s dry and medium bodied, with a high but nice carbonation level. Lasting finish. A tasteful and quenching beer. 140524

Bov (10594) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 5, 2015
from Erzbierschof - hazy blond-yellow beer with a moderate foam left; fresh hoppy aroma of mango, star fruit and apples; light oily and moderate malt backbone; subtle carbonation; gently bitter and pretty dry, a bit short aftertaste yet fairly tasty with more fruity hoppy tones of berries and star fruits - deeply drinkable
