Bottle. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of malt, some fruitiness, caramel, wheat, mint and spices. Flavor is sweet and fruity with some malt, spices, grains and citrus. Medium body, soft carbonation. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Bottle, An unclear, golden beer topped by a small, off-white head. Rather neutral aroma, fruity, sugary and with some grass and flowers. Almost flat on the palate, medium body and semi-sweet. Grass, flowers, canned peaches and a generic fruityness in the flavor. Not much bitterness going on. Peachy finish. Lacking big time on bitterness and carbonation, but it’s quite interesting anyway. 141011 Meilby (11495) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014

Bottle at T Bois 40. It pours murky golden orange with a small white head. The nose is soft, fruity, tangerine, marmalade, juicy, candy, berry and dried mango. The taste is crisp, bitter, tart fruits, apricot, peachy, and sugar with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. On the sweet side, but not bad. Ok. mmahut (1859) - CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle. Hazy golden copper body with no head. Aroma has light citrus malty touch, little bit acidic. Little bit tropical. Taste has fruity sweetness, light earthy bitterness. Body is full, low carbonation, soft. Very interesting if this is mostly by the grain character. Silvan7 (1243) - Samarate, ITALY - SEP 1, 2014
On tap @ Birre in Piazza, Eataly 2014. Birra ambrata, velata, con schiuma beige sottile non molto persistente. Abbastanza fine. Aroma di frutta gialla, pesca e prugna in maggiore evidenza, zucchero candito. Luppolo aromatico presente ma non da protagonista. Dolce amabile, maltata, poco corposa, e poco carbonata. Facile beva, abbastanza equilibrata. la dolcezza marcata del malto non trova un contrappeso altrettanto deciso nella luppolatura o nella tostatura. Decisamente godibile, però.
