Didnít really care for this one. Very phenolic yeasty aroma with passionfruity NZ hops. More yeast and phenol flavour again with loads of passionfruit and a late, strong bitterness, which I found to be an odd combination. Funnily enough I also thought this one tasted like it used Wyeast 3522 too so maybe Iím just stupid...

Big Hoppy aroma, yellow in colour with big fluffy head. hopyy taste and was like drink hop pallets directly.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2004
Tropical aroma, quite hoppy. Heaps of kiwi fruit, passionfruit, lychee to start with, with some citrus passiona in the end, lightly spicy. Start is sweet, but bitteres out nicely towards the end. Pretty tasty stuff.

pretty seriously passiofruity. some sweentess and spiciness but alas a little bit of kero nastiness just crept in towards the end of the glass. otherwise very good

an enormous whiff of passionfruit yoghurt and crushed ants - weird but appetising. body is nice and malty, chewy with honey and nougat, and finishes really hoppy with more passionfruit and spice. pretty interesting, a saison and an IPA in one.
