3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
