3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 33cl bottle (what I assume as there is no indication in the label). Orange-brown and very murky with small sediment particles. Very hoppy aroma. Pear, citrus and peach or nectarine. Nice bitterness, but doesn’t last too long. Very well bodied and an oily texture, but a little over carbonated and a very slight grainy-sandy texture. This Swiss micro brewery is going their own way, and its a good thing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the webshop. Pours cloudy amber. Aroma is tropical fruits, some forest, little citrus. Mango. Body is heavy and dense, with a healthy bitterness in the background, more than expected at this IBU. Residual sweetness kicks in late, but lasts until the palate. Warming. Quite nice.
