ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle. Lychee, gooseberry, citrus and elderflower aroma. Fantastic. Lots of residual sweetness against which the bitterness struggles for a few sips before the whole achieves the desired balance. Nonetheless a crisp beer. Very tasty.

nihtila (2959) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2015
19.11.2013. Hieman sitruksen ja humalan tuoksua, myös hunajaa? Maku aika samoilla linjoilla: hieman sitrusta ja humalan puraisua, jälkimaussa kuivaa humalaa ja ruohoisuutta. Aika suoraviivainen, mutta jotenkin kevyt alkutuntuma ja lopun bitteri eivät ole tasapainossa. Jälkimaku ei oikein miellytä.

ALLOVATE (2911) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2015
At just on cool and into a snifter. Hazy, pastel yellow and still. Head off the pour holds; snow-white and daubs the glass well. Strong, dried herb and butter note atop hints of fresh baked bread, honey and almonds. Bready, sweet and a little cloying on the palate - OK it’s over date, but this drinks like it’s a year over date. Light bitterness is overdone by the yeasty notes. Body is light but it sits heavy in the stomach. Not much else. Forgettable. (33cL, BBE 04/15, Luckies Liquor, East Vic. Park)
