3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber with big, quickly dissipating head. Aroma with some orangey caramel note to it. Some banana, plums and other fruits. Taste is fairly sharp, tarry with some almost astringent notes. Finish is sweeter, long with spicy bitter notes. Got better with increasing temp, was perfect with the mango slices we had on the side.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big beige lasting head. Clear brownish amber body with light
carbonation. Caramelly tropical fruit aroma with soy sauce and
resin notes. Dry-sweet pineapple mango and resin taste with
mealy minty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, smooth, mealy
mouthfeel. Dry minty fluffy mango and pineapple aftertaste with
orangey and vaguely durian-like notes. Nice and interesting.
It’s a real hop bomb, but in a harmonic, balanced way. (0.75l
bottle, Systembolaget Nordstan, Gothenburg.)

Färg kobbar, kryddig och fruktig doft, tydlig smak av persika från torrhumlen.
Riktig trevlig öl. Lite mer beska hade inte varit fel, skulle kanske ha druckit den runt jul....

Nice bottle. Pours clear amber, with a medium beige head, that quickly pops and disappears. Semi-sour aroma of bisquits. Taste of caramel, fruits and hops. Kinda dry, reminds me of a saison, barleywine-hybrid.
