75 cl. bottle sampled courtesey of Kraddel. Clear orange with an unstable fluffy white head. Lovely full citra nose on this one, lovely, lots of citrus on this one, light lemon, touch grapefruit etc. with some caramel / milky sweetness underneath. Taste is touch tuned down, sweeter caramel, toffee, touch honey, flowers, citrus, grapefruit, creamy citra, light root bitter. Creamy body – quite enjoyed this one unlike the other two of this series.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden colored pour. Big white head. Plenty of lacing. Smells of yeast, lemon, malt, and caramel. A bit dry in the nose. Taste is a dry malt with some bitter hop forwardness. Dry mouth. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium, very fine and dense, lighlty yellowish head, rather stable over veiled orange-ochre beer. Nose yields subsequently dry heather, fruity (berries), valerian/blackcurrant leaf, dry hopbales; citrus... if you want, yes. Very dry, bitterish to bitter hopflavour; again valerian/catty. Bitterish rootspices. Retronasal, again faint citrus. Feels quite carbonated; medium bodied at best. Aftertaste has more outspoken, if indifferent bitterness. This one indeed closely resembles the Mikkeller Hop Series Citra. Same cattiness - I am surprised Duvel/Moortgat managed to avoid this aspect of Citra in their DTH. Overall, quite unidimensional, and not very exciting.
