3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2012 Bottle (50 cl). Appearance: 3/5
Clear amber liquid with a dirty white head that left chunks of foam on the side of the glass.
Fruity, caramel, malt, citrus, some oranges and a hint of metal.
Caramel, malt and some fruits.
Mild, fruity and fairly easy to drink,.
This beer worked well with the salty and fat Easter food last year and I got a feeling it will be just as good this year as well.
Re-rated during 2012: This version is allot better then previous versions.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A grainy, spicy, toasty nose where the blueberry jam, milk chocolate and tomato seeds form an original and hard to describe nose. Quite tight. Following in the same registry, the palate is malty, with a dose of earthy hops and wild flowers, roots toi follow up. Rather salty (celery salt) bitterness. Original flavours in a toasted malt foundatrion. A bit more residual sugars than I’d want, especially that the body does not put them to good use, feeling quite airy and paradoxally creamy yet foamy, never biting, but never full. Lager-like mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Red, coppery body with a medium creamy white head. A beautiful sight. Aroma is peachy hop tones with a pleasant malt balance. Hints of red berries and wild strawberries in particular. Taste is a smooth blend of grassy hops, malts and fruity hints of red berries and honey melon. Not terribly exciting but a very nicely composed beer that I wouldn’t mind having for Easter. Or summer, like now. :-)
