Dipa provning julafton. Klassiskt frgad Dipa. Doften kllartung och bltt grs . Lite torkade frukter och tydligt av mogen pron. I munnen rejl beska och barren finns dr. Viss mjlighet av finare sort. Eftersmak beeeesk, gr, trisst, nada 0%. Men efterbeska r jttefin. Ok Dipa dr eftersmaken var stor besvikelse. Typiskt okunniga Dipa bryggare dr man st in humle och inte tnkt p balansen.
