Bit hazy amber, big light brown frothy head and good lacing, looks good. Fresh citrus and pine, like walking in a forest after rain. Caramel also. Tempting aroma. Soft round feel, medium to full, thick, long finish is nuanced with bitter citrus , caramel and flowery notes. Looks good, smells and tastes great, good balance, long enjoyable flavors. I really enjoyed this, great stuff!

Bonne ! Nez entre des agrumes douces et un fond tropical (mangue) : joli équilibre. En bouche, on a une attaque assez ronde, fruitée qui part vite sur une amertume nette sans être agressive. Finale plutôt sèche et portée sur les agrumes. Très agréable.

Bobson (76) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2016
Bottle @ home with Thompson. Smell gives some yeast and herbs. Looks very cloudy although that could be from the previous beer. Tastes fresh at the start but then gives you some yeast and herbs. Overall, extremely solid beer I’d happily drink again.
