Keg at Gar Eden. Aroma is big hoppy, boozy fruit. Taste is good, dry, tropical fruit, marmalade, bit of spikiness. Good stuff. Easy drinking in spite of percentage.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A dark, reddish brown beer with an almost medium and beige head. Strongly aromatic aroma that is different than any other beers that I have tasted. Rich, great, strongly fruitful with sweet berries. Sweet papaiyas, fructose, fruit candies, raspberries and strawberries. Taste has same sweet fruits and berries as in the aroma, some pine needles and citrusfruits. Balanced sweetness of fructose. Strong body, low carbonation, not sticky. The great beer that was surprising as itís unique flavours. Balanced, fruit-berry mix with enough of bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, at Haand Festival 2015. An almost clear one, golden in color and with a creamy off-white head. The aroma has caramel malts in the back, with dried fruits, pine cones and resins. Itís a bit sweet on the palate and lacking on bitterness, but thereís a nice malty backbone and lovely flavors of resins and pine cones. Itís full-bodied and lightly warming, with a pleasant carbonation level. Overall, a nice beer indeed, but I find it too sweet and malty. 140524
