A very fruity hop, to my surprise, and a bit herbal. Taste has moderate bitterness, but simple perhaps. Base beer is very well developed and nicely clean. Good start of a Hop Series tasting session. (33cl bottle from Dranken Geers) Majin (256) - West Des Moines, Iowa, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Poured into a snifter at cheese shop. Dark amber look. Light head, floral hoppy aroma. Nice smooth flow. Delish!!

330ml bottle at home. Appears hazy dark amber in the glass with a loose yellowy-tinged white head that laces well. Aroma has hoppy fruity elements with tangerines, pineapple, and pine-needles to the fore on top of a toasty caramel malt bill. Taste is dry and earthy with a mild sweetness and medium herbal hop bitterness that lingers. Good balance of malt and hop with pleasant smooth mouthfeel and medium body.

Bottel from Erzbierschof - Hazy amber color, thick off-white head, good lace - aroma of pine, caramel anf hints of apricot - pine, resinous, caramel malt flavor - medium body, good carboanation, long dry bitter finish - this one appear to be more bitter than the firsts i’ve tried in this serie. Good but i’m not fan of this hops zacgillbanks (5180) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2013
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. A hazy orange beer with rich orange marmalade and red fruity flavours, bitter woody notes and a sweetness on the finish.

Pours a hazy copper with fair off white head leaving some lace up the glass. Aroma is earthy, moderate sweet tropical fruits, slightly herbal and caramel malts and an overall good malty backbone. Flavour is earthy, pine, grapefruit, mild sweetness, low-medium bitterness that does linger a while, some herbal notes as well as a good malty caramel backbone. sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2013
Ambrée trouble, col blanc cassé.
Arôme de pin léger, moyen caramel avec cette petite pointe de renfermé distincte - pungent de ce type de houblon, malts foncés.
Palais est ici une balance subtile des malts et du houblon qui rend un côté citronné toujours agréable voire herbacé. Fin de bouche conserve un léger relent de levure avec un malt que je trouve plus relevé presque biscuité. Pétillance moyenne pour une amertume rappelant un houblonné vert frais.

Aroma of raisins and an earthiness. Pours a cloudy copper with a one finger large bubble, mostly diminishing, off- white head and moderate lacing. The taste is moderately bitter. Floral, raisins, hay, and an earthiness. Crisp dry finish. Medium-light body and crisp carbonation. A lingering hopp /fruity aftertaste. Overall, I liked this beer. (Judging from the other ratings, it’s like persimmons…either you like them or you don’t.) Would drink again. ShaneJ (896) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2013
Bottle from Beer Cartel. Hazy orange/amber, bit of tropical fruit, apricot/peach, pine, grassy, quite dry finish. Not bad. lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a cloudy copper amber colour with a large frothy white head. Aroma of green tea, resin and peach. Flavour of strong tangy grassy bitterness, resin, peach, grapefrui, pine needlest and some biscuity maltiness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a warming, bitter, biscuity finish. Nice and refreshing.
