3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance alone makes me want to taste it. Aroma is hard to explain...I have all these images of rustic vegetable gardens and fields. Trying to pull a word from my brain and all I get is "Round". Taste is equally perplexing and enjoyable. This ale is smooth and relaxing while at the same time citrus and lively. Baird out did their selves with this one.
Bottle @ home. A year old. Pours a hazy golden liquid. Aroma of malt, grain, herbs, grass, mandarin juice. Taste is dry, crisp, a little sticky and medium bitter. Flavors of grain, maltiness, some corn, grape fruit, mandarin and oranges, herbs. Finush has some pine, oramge peel, and pine resin. Lasting bitterness.

Pours a cloudy golden with a thin white head. The aroma is a bit lighter, consisting of mikan, wheat, grapefruit, and lemon. The mikan in the nose stand out most. The taste has quite a bit more bitterness than I was expecting. Equal grapefruit and mikan dominate. Underneath I find floral hops, wheat, and some mild cereal, and hints of spice. Long mikan aftertaste. This one is medium in body, with a slick texture, and is average in carbonation. I found this rather refreshing to drink. Fules (1306) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - OCT 3, 2016
Kicsi, gyorsan eltűnő hab, borostyán szín. Enyhe, citrusos, fűszeres illat. Déligyümölcsös, citrusos, fűszeres ízek. Közepesen testes, enyhén keserű és szénsavas. Nem jött be.

330ml bottle pours a hazy golden color with sediments on the bottom of glass and a finger of white head on top leaving only a few spots of lacing. Aroma is oranges and orange zest with some herbal notes. Taste is an orange zest and citrus hop bitterness with a fruity and malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a nicely hopped and tasty fruit beer that is quite enjoyable.

33 cl bottle @ Timo A. Bottled on 23.10.2015.PanMarek (462) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2016
Pours clear pale golden color with a small head. Aroma is herbal, some grain notes, mild citric tones, grass and pale malts. Flavor is orange and mandarin, some grassy notes, maybe corn tones and some juicy notes. Decent.
Citrus nose with a dank, hoppy finish and touches of malt. Taste is complex with a moderate hoppiness dominating. There is a touch of sour as well as citrus. Medium body and fizziness. Based on the description, I was expecting something much more challenging. The fruit notes are unusual but subtle. I had this from a bottle that may have been old. Would like to try on tap to compare. RW80 (2659) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2016

330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear amber color. Small size, white head, disappears. Old cloth, yeasty, some malts, bit of burnt rubber in aroma. Acidic citrus, tart, spicy hops, grapefruit skins in taste. Grapefruit skins and peel in aftertaste. Medium fruity bitterness. Medium carbonation. Alcohol is hidden which is nice. Bit harsh to drink, but still drinkable.
