3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very good, cream-yellow head, slowly collapsing over hazed amber beer. Fruity hops, cakey malts, aromas of lytchee, orange, rosewater, pink grapefruit and rhubarb. Bitter, near-metallic, but yet fruity hopflavours & -oils. Grapefruit, orangepeel, but also slightly peanuts or Brazil nuts. Gets quite a bit earthy, later, even a bit of cacaopowder - melanoidins? Medium bodied, quite slick. Really nice, but not spectacular.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Un pronunciato profumo di agrumi, molto piacevole. Un bel colore ambrato-aranciato e un cappello di schiuma beige che lascia tracce sul bicchiere mano a mano che diminuisce. All’assaggio è subito preponderante l’amaro dei luppoli. Ma è un amaro piacevole che non disturba. E’ molto beverina e spinge a berne subito ancora. Poco frizzante e con un finale in cui resta la piacevolezza dell’amaro e poco alcool.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from bierkompass. Hazy amber-golden colour, large off-white head. Lovely aromatic hoppy nose. Rather shy malty base, making way for loads of aromatic hops with a slightly citrusy, buit mainly resiny character, slightly grassy. The hop flavours have a big impact because there is only a shy malty base to complement and balance off this delicious hoppy bitterness. A pleasure, a really delicious beer.
