4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
from CraftGallery - very hazy dark blond beer with a long lasting white foam left; nice lace; solid and fresh aroma of passion fruit and melon; assertive, very tasty palate; solid but subtle carbonation; a fair bitterness (subjectively more than the shy 26 IBU announced); dry and long hugely fruity hoppy finish of passion fruit and lychies

Bottle, thanks anstei! Hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma is melon, passion fruit and other tropical fruits, just a hint of sweatsocks, some yeastiness. Taste is sweaty, more melon and maracuja, bready finish. Very nice, simple and straightforward.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the web shop. Pours hazy pale yellow, not a beauty. It seems I have to look more into galaxy if this is what it can do. Some light citric notes and a little fruity, yet not overwhelming. Medium malt body with a fine bitterness and a lively carbonation. Very pleasant to drink, too. Nice.
