75 cl. bottle shared with Ivo and Rick @ Rick, thanks to Ivo. Hazy golden with a big white head. Bit of a gusher upon opening though. Hoppy flowery aroma with a hint of yeast. Hoppy bitter taste and aftertaste. Great lightfooted beer.

Thanks to Mr. Hangover for the share of this amazingly well aged beer. Poured a slightly hazy medium amber with a small off white head. Aroma of a DIPA, tropical fruit a go-go. Medium body, flavour as the aroma, mngo, peach, grapefruit. Bitter sweet finish. MrHangover (4617) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle @ Deans Winter Shelter Tasting, thnx to my grandpartents for picking this up for me somewhere. Probably around 4-6 years old bottle. ABV stated on the bottle is 5.2. Pours a clear golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma of madeira, mango and citrus. Very fruity and even hoppy after these years! Flavor is quite sweet, hoppy and definitely age noticeable in the sweet, madeira and port notes. Aged incredibly well for such a low abv beer. Awesome! jmgreenuk (9559) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle at Deans Winter Shelter Tasting. Aged from 2008. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is grass hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a hoppy malt bitter palate. Aged immensely well. Really enjoyed this. worldbeertaste (1804) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2013
5-6 years old bottle. Medium gold with a white, thin, lacy lasting head. Delicious smells of various hops, mango, passion fruit. Very fruity. Medium frothy oily body. Tastes of sweet tropical fruit, with a pineapple, apple and fruity, zesty malt. Amazing after all this time. Still as happy and carbonated as if it was just made.

Sampled from bottle @ Deans Winter Shelter Tasting. Hazy yellow color, medium sized white head. Aroma is quite hoppy even though it’s quite an old beer. Taste lightly malts, hops, fruity, lightly bitter. Unbelievable after about 5 years and with this low ABV. Superb! kermis (13883) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2013
