77ships (7353) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2016
Sampled draft @ Tilburgs Bierfestival 2016. Hazy orange, only a few bubbles, looks a bit flat. Very oily hop oil nose, bathroom esoteric oil & perfume, caramel, sugar. Taste is weird tea & hop oil, tea, bland oily with sugar,.. Flat hop oil & bit too big sugar. Not really into it.

Gorgosh (424) - SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2016
En sann ulv i fårakläder. Eller möjligtvis en öl i jäkligt cool krokodilflaska, om man nu enbart ska bry sig om det visuella. Som utlovat är det den lokala humlen som gör jobbet...eller till och med hela grovgörat. Aromen är kraftigt fruktig med mycket tropisk frukt. Smaken är tyvärr inte lika tilltalande. Den tropiska frukten finns kvar, men i övrigt är det ett dussindryck. En tydlig bäska som man känner igen och väldigt, för genren, standardiserad maltsmak. Helt godkänd och fullständigt begripligt att den tydligen är en best seller.
