Medium, just off-white head over hazy ochre-orange beer. S.A. clearly there, ascertained by the blue mould cheese aroma. Bit of incense, and alien fruit. Blue cheese, mushrooms, citruspeel, very bitter, but in the finish, there’s a latent sweetness. Certain backthroat heat, very carbonated, quite slick, medium bodied. Restrained aftertaste, resiny. Quite good indeed - just as the Mikkeller single hop series S.A.... And again Barley wine seems designated for this hop, IMO. Thanks to Stefaan!

kerenmk (2195) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 4, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the new Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. Pours cloudy amber with white head. Soft, ripe mango aroma, fresh hoppy bitter taste. Medium-to-full body, slightly fizzy and very nice.

BierFiend (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours golden with a thick white head. Smells of hops and spices. Thick hops flavor with an alcoholy finish. Light carbonation on the tongue.

gEUS (998) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2013
750 ml bottle - pours clear yellow with steady yet thin head. Aroma is green harsh, pine, banana. Thin body, lack of balance, a bit too bitter.

McWorta (553) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 15, 2013
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 Dark golden colour a bit hazy, silky white head fading a bit but then lasting. On the nose develop interesting aromas of exotic fruit, some mango and spring floral aromas. Light fizzy and develops a lovely light oily lacing on the palate. Medium body, fruity sweet but well in balance, some hints of bitterness but quickly overwhelmed by chewyness. Soft on the lips and the finish is overall rather short but has a linger on the palate silently with some dryness. Astonished of this - I like it!

DSG (5634) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the new Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks beerandbeyond. Hazy golden with a white head. Hoppy aroma of Sorachi Ace with lemongrass, floral spiciness and some sweetish fruitiness. Flavor of Sorachi Ace with fruitiness, woody and floral spiciness and moderate bitterness. Medium-bodied. Pretty quaffable.

suprchunk (2088) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Clear golden colored pour. Huge white head. Frothy and leaves a huge amount of lacing. Slight floral aroma. Huge peppery hoppy flavor. Some citrus. But very peppery. Not that bitter, but does have a nice malt sweetness. Very nice beer.

Bontus (625) - Flanders, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2013
75 cl bottle, Delhaize. Good price! Pours hazy to clear yellow. Citrus nose, spicy pineapple, more earthlike, bitterness is well rounded and well balanced.
