Taster at the source. Pours clear amber. Aroma is light tropical fruit over quite some pine trees, mango and needles. Body is medium, strongly bitter and rather sweet, with a low but lively carbonation. Some residual sweetness, light soap. Lingering bitter palate with some mango. Good.

Bue à Berlin dans la Brasserie Lemke. Bière ambrée au nez houblonné et résineux. En bouche elle est houblonnée et résineuse. Bonne bière. WillemsUrenkel (1819) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - APR 28, 2017
0,33 l bottle from Beer Supreme Oldenburg. Red golden in the glass, nearly clear, more than one finger white head. Typical hopy with some floral elements on the nose. Taste starts really nice, hopy, resin, the floral part is more in the background, increasing malty. Some honey. Pleasant bitterness and hints of dry grain to the end. Enjoyable stuff.

Tap at the brewpub. Beer in the glass clear golden, small head. Mild hoppy aroma. Starts mild, light fruity-hoppy notes, more and more dry background. Fruity notes like peach and mango. Finish mild. Okay. victorsampson96 (91) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2017
UPDATED: APR 4, 2017 (From the Keg) Clear amber beer, small white head, steady carbonation up the side of the glass. Light floral aromas, grapefruit, rose petals, light lemon peel. Remarkably sweet for an IPA, but that doesn’t detract from its appeal. Lovely smooth texture, almost creamy. Apple, pear drop, caramel biscuit, leading to a dry finish. Hints of minerals and pine resin at the end.
Easily sessionable IPA, very pleasant to drink. The hops don’t punch you in the chops, and this makes this a lovely old-school IPA.
