4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From bottle. Pours golden and hazy with small head which stays long. Aroma is fresh, contains grass, pine and herbs. In taste it is...incredible I would say. Nelson Sauvin is there but in a pleasant way. First time I’ve encountered this. It’s different, it’s really good. Try it if you can.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: citrus, mango, lychee, riesling wine notes.
Appearance: hazy straw color, nice white head.
Taste: high bitterness (white grapefruit, pine), mango, quite dry, well-balanced.
Palate: medium body and really high carbonation (overcarbonated), bitter finish.
Overall: Quite good stuff, but really overcarbonated. It is really difficult to drink this beer in a such form.
