A golden beer with a big, slightly cloudy and blond head. The nose is pleasant and aromatic, fresh, fruits and flowers, apples. Taste of smooth fruits, spices, nice herbal bitterness. The end is quite long, dry and nicely hopped. Pleasant and fresh beer with a nice, quite strong and remarkable hoppyness.

Sample from bottle, RBNG 2014 in Halden, Grand Tasting. ABV was 7.5%. Golden to orange colour, large white head. Distinctly spicy and hoppy aroma and flavour. I tasted only about half of the beers available at the Grand Tasting, but this was the "Beer of the Tasting" for me.

Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours hazy orange with a big frothy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving some soapy lacing on the glass. Smell is yeasty and fruity with crackers, peaches, dry soil, hay, white pepper corns, grapefruit juice, pineapple, lemon zest, dried pine needles, papaya and passionfruit. Taste is bitter, fruity and phenolic with crackers, dry soil, hay, grapefruit juice, pineapple, mango, white pepper corns and hints of leather. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry and light bodied. Finish is bitter with crackers, grapefruit rinds, hay, white pepper corns, dry soil, leather and unripe tropical fruits. Very pleasant surprise of a beer.
