Since it was released April 1 and likely made only once it seems I’ve managed to pick out a beer that is not very fresh for its style.
Murky orange to apricot color, fluffy off-white head. Head looks nice, though the extreme lack of see through is more than I’d expect even with "unfilt and unpast" in a beer, doesn’t look very tasty at first sight. Phenolic, hoppy, light fruity scent, also sweet and herbal, like you mixed in some meadow plants of some sort. Mineral, light bitter, grassy taste. Fizzy thin mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Grainy, pith aftertaste. Unpleasant bitter harsh finish.
The grassy notes mixed with the overly harsh bitterness makes me wonder if brewers perhaps used extensive amounts of whole flowers in the beer, but that the beer itself was not very stable when it comes to keeping the hop notes over a few months. Might have been better fresh if there were more hop notes to mask the harshness better, at this time though, the beer got dumped.
Didn’t really get any honey notes, unless the lind/Tilia cordata was that meadow green I couldn’t place my finger on what it was?
Bottle from Systembolaget, e-order in May 2014.
A bit hazy golden/orange with a huge white head. Aroma of citrus, grass, bread and some apricot. Similar taste. Fairly soft and not that bitter.

Good fruity aroma. The taste is also fruity but also watery. Decent bitterness finishes the beer that is trapped in the upper part of the mouth for a long time. Pretty mediocre according to me.

Gyllengul öl med vitt skum. Brödig, maltig med inslag av citrus och viss gräsighet. Samma återkommer i smaken. En trevlig sessionöl. SaintMatty (7362) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2014
330ml Bottle - Hazy gold/amber with a foamy head. Slightly earthy aroma with notes of citrus and grain. Tangy and hoppy taste with peach, grapefuit, apricot and a hint of mango. Fairly enjoyable but a bit ’raw’. BiffNilsson (270) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2014
orangegul grumlig vätska med obefintlig vit krona som snabbt försvinner helt. Ganska liten neutral aledoft.
Smaken är bättre än doften men även den är liten och kolsyran är trött.
Dessutom finns en bismak i ölet som jag inte riktigt gillar.
Ingen höjdare från klackabacken denna gången
