500 ml bottle. Hazy golden orange colour, medium-sized off-white head. Very pleasant hoppy grapefruit aroma. The flavour is caramel-malty, with citrus fruits, pine and a very nice, lingering bitter finish. Not really a Christmas beer, but nonetheless very tasty.

Bottle. Pours a hazy light amber with an off-white head. Nice lacing. Sweetish, dusty pine hop aroma with a bit of citrus. Flavour is sweetish, bitter and (pine) hoppy. Slight notes of orange peels. Bitter finish. Very nice. 22-11-09. raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - NOV 21, 2009
Bottle 0,5 l. Yellowy beige with offish white head. Nose is insanely nice, fresh hops, grass, flowers, perfume. Flavor has a lot of hops, perfumy soapy flowery hops with a twist of grass and some gummy bear juiciness. Not much malts to compensate, alcohol very hidden. It’s all about hops and this is an extreme beer. Quite a treat, but not perfect. And nothing christmasy about this really, which is good. rane (1060) - Nibe, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2009
