Bawelt (720) - Lyon, FRANCE - JAN 6, 2017
Pourquoi pas. Nez assez houblonné mais plein de levures. Une bouche assez sèche, très verte, finale très amère avec un peu d’agrumes. Puissante dans son petit style. Manque d’une palette aromatique plus fournie.

bierkoning (12912) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2016
Swing top bottle. Blonde. Lychee and mango in the aroma. Malty yet dry flavor with lots of mango, peppermint, soft yeasty notes. Nice.

33cl swing top bottle from a trade with SinH4, many thanks Stefan!! Gushing! Pours hazy deep golden colour with a huge most good lasting off-white head. Aroma of grassy bitter hops, a lot of citrus, some yeast. Taste of bitter fruity hops, citrus, lime, long bitter finish, quite nice!

SinH4 (4046) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2016
Bottle, thanks anstei! Slightly hazy orange-amber color with big white head - which gets quite some floatees and a milky color once you poured the whole bottle. Aroma is lots of fruity hops: Tropical fruits with lychee and mango, some blueberry - a very clean fruity Mosaic-like nose without too much sweatsocks and onions as you have so often. In addition to that, lots of pines, and I get some tea in there. Taste is a refined combination of fruits, first the tropical fruits from the nose which are quite juicy, then heavily bitter grapefruit components and pines take over, all accompanied by a slightly bready malt body. Solid bitterness in the finish, some pepper in there even, stays dry overall, but still full-bodied. Oily mouthfeel, pleasant bitter aftertaste. A great hoppy brew with some BFM twist to it that works out perfectly! I suggest you don’t pour the whole bottle and try to leave the floatees and the milky yeast in there - the second half of the bottle would only score 3.4-3.5 for me.

anstei (1691) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 7, 2016
Bottle from Beers’n’more. Powerful hoppy nose of grass, some pines and flowers. High carbonation, medium sweet body with a late bitterness, but never lets go of the flavour. Juicy throughout. Long bitter finish. Decent.
