Bottle shared at a tasting at home. Thanks Hansen & Zita for this bottle! Hazy deep orange with an off-white head. Aroma of grains, buttery popcorn and a bit of fruity hops. Sweetish flavor with some popcorn, fruity hops and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Smells bad, tastes decent.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
.50 bottle. Light orange, hazy. Fruity nose. Citrus, rubarb, some tropicality. Gooseberries. A bit of caramel from the malts. And some cardboard, unfortunately. Body is a bit thinnish. Dry. But full of flavor though. Nice brew, nice apa. But with a bit of oxidation and yeast residue. Not super clean in other words, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Feels authentic, like a good home brew.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(33 cl bottle from Fish’n’Beer; BBD: March 26th 2013) Pours a hazy amber with medium, creamy white head. Good retention and lace. Aroma is somewhat disappointingly grassy and cereal with hints of something that smells skunked to me. Definitely not remniscient of the Nelson Sauvin that I’ve come to know and love. Oily texture, full body with medium carbonation and a lingering, bitter finish. Flavour is much better than the aroma. Well balanced and with a slight bitterness in the end that makes you want to taste more.
