Melker (267) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2013 Gul/guldig färg. Lätt grumlig. Stort bubbligt skum.
Luktar grapefrukt, apelsin, citron, lite tall.
Ganska söt smak i början, lätt karamellig. Övergår i en riktigt stor beska som ligger och trycker i munnen länge! Linnet (1909) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2013
Ar: lots of hops, grapefruit, resin, pineapple, citric, pine, black currants, leaves, floral, fruit candy, light notes of vanilla, bread, caramel, berries.
Ap: amber colour, medium off-white head, lacing.
F: big bite, but also a very pronounced maltiness, grapefruit, fruit candy, resin, caramel, bread, slightly metallic and in my opinion the fat malt backbone somewhat subdues the hops, slightly warming finish.
P: medium body, soft carbonation.
T: you can’t deny the craftsmanship, but I would have liked a more pronounced hop character. Div (25) - SWEDEN - APR 5, 2013

Sweet, very fruity aroma. Tropical fruits, like mango, guava, papaya... Tastes less then expected from the aroma. I miss something. I thought for a while but couldn’t figure out how to describe it. Strong bitternes crawls up in the aftertaste and lingers.
Recommended temperature is 11-14°C according to the description. I poured it around 10°C, and enjoyed it more before it passed 15°C, as notes of dough and alcohol begins to show.
Draft @ The Rover Gothenburg: Hazy yellow colour, with a big nice head. Aroma is dominates of a "bomb" of fruits, orange,flowers, maltynes. Flavor was a bomb for my mouth, a werry nice fruity, orange,citrus complex mouthfeeling. Big body and a dry bitter finish who is endless!! Well done!!!!!!! jolo (1152) - Uppsala, Sweden, SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 8, 2013

Taste is sweet, bitter and fruity with grapefruit juice, resinous wood, alcohol, pineapple, papaya, peaches, mango, oily pine, sweet bread, black tea, lemon peal, honeydew melon, crackers and hints of butterscotch and black currants.
