courtesy of MarkoNM - hazy amber-blond beer with a nice head retention; fair fruity hoppy nose of grapefruit and citrus; notes of caramel; subtle carbonation, juicy palate; a nice well-integrated bitterness; long aftertaste of lemongrass, grapefruit and marzipan; light sweetness herrklemann (620) - Graz, AUSTRIA - JUL 30, 2017
Bottle at Jack & Joe Maribor. Light haze, gold, small white head. Grapes, apple, some citrus, some biscuit malts. Starts out intensely tart and fruity, turns dry, light bitter. Medium body, soft carbonation. Good, but hardly balanced. Loved the dry finish. CanCrusher (1202) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - JUN 22, 2017
Bottle 0,33L. Courtesy of Kita. Murky, almost juicy appearance with big, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is grassy and spicy with some citruses and malty background, Taste is moderate to heavy bitter, but leaves some unpleasant metallic notes in the aftertaste. Bitterness is harsh, texture is very dry, looks like unfinished beer Kita (2352) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle, 0.30l. Murky earthy color with thin soapy off-white head and fair lacing. Pleasant aroma of passion fruit, pineapple, resin and biscuit malt. Taste starts with light sweet and sour citrus, following is grainy, grassy and vegetably with notes of toasted malt and unfortunatelly some sulphur and rotten eggs, too. Mouthfeel is rather dry, while finish is relatively bitter. Medium body, thin oily texture and lively carbonation in palate. Promising aroma, but following is rather defeat than victory...

Bottle, 330 ml, courtesy of and shared with JFK10000. Pours murky yellow, like pear juice. Fantastic tropical fruit aroma, flavor not that good. Fruity, sweetish, light bodied. Bit short finish.
Grumbo (4739) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2016
Bottle received in a trade with MarkoNm. Pours cloudy pale orange with a big frothy off white head. Lovely hoppy and fruity aroma, particularly grapefruit, pineapple and lemon, touch of biscuit too. Medium fruity sweetness, citrus bitterness. Quite light body, slight oily texture, more than average carbonation. Finish is slightly dry and bitter. Nice one. hrabren (2047) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 6, 2016
0.33 l bottle at William’s Pub, Ljubljana. Shared with lovely Anja. Opaque, very hazy dirty yellow to golden, huge creamy off-white head. Looks out of this world. Heavily hopped, extremely fruity, tropical all the way. Sweet and fruity, bitterness develops slightly. Light to medium body, soft carbonation, mild gentle texture, moderate dry finish. Extreme hoppiness as expected, a little off-balance, but very tasty and interesting. fombe89 (4447) - Asturias, SPAIN - NOV 16, 2016

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2017 Pours very cloudy like orange juice, with straw like foamy one finger high stable head. Beer is really cloudy and in this part really reminds on products of american New England breweries from Trilium, Alcemist to three House brewing.
Aroma have notes of some tropical fruits, citruses, pine..flavor is more sophisticated, with fruity notes of hops, which takes on citruses, tropical fruits, with some spicy, peppery elements, supported with white bread like malt backbone. Mouth feel is citrusy juicy, hop bitterness is medium to high, finish is bitter and lingers in aftertaste, body is moderate medium, texture soft, carbonation moderate medium.
After several different bottles and batches my overall is 3.3. Best batch I rated with score 3.5.

Bottle from the brewers. Pours very cloudy and pale orange colour topped with a very small and non-lasting white head. A full basket of tropical fruits with pineapple upfront, mixed with some elder scent. Medium but lon lasting fruity sweetness, balanced by medium hoppy bitterness with short aftertaste. Medium body and very enjoyable. Nice one
