3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from systembolaget. Smell of dried fruits and some herbs and spices. It pours a clear light golden colour with a small white head. The taste is sweet and very fresh, it also has hints of grass. Palate is close to perfect. Full but not overwhelming, makes a nice finish of an overall pretty nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From last month’s Total Wine summer beer tasting class; from a growler. This has a great aroma with citrus. Strong flavor, almost like potpourri, with flowery notes; the flavor is almost overwhelming; it’s good but I’m not sure I’d enjoy a whole one.
