Brewed from pale and caramel malts and heavily hopped with Hersbracker and Saaz hops, this is a beer for the connoisseur, who does not shy away from a robust hoppiness. Its full, smooth flavor makes it an ideal session beer.

Sigmund (7126) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2008
330 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.0%. Cloudy brownish yellow colour, huge white head. Very nice aroma of banana and spices (cloves, coriander e.a.), candisugar and Belgian yeast. The flavour is fairly sweet (maybe too much), fruity, spicy and yeasty. Moderate hops in the finish.

Bottle: Cloudy, orangey coloured, persistent off-white foamy layer; mainly yeasty nose with a lot of fruity-orangey spots; quite full bodied, moderate sweet flavour; alcohol in the fruity and sweet-malty finish. O.K., a heavy brew, not very exciting.........

FatPhil (15334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 3, 2008
330ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam)
Mid orange, some sinky bits, small tight persistent head. Honey first, then apples and peaches. Soft carbonation, smooth body. Sweet pale malt taste, almost wheaty in its fruity lightness. Slight hint of soap, decent bitter hoppy presence - tingles the mouth just a little. Some burnt edges to the malt too, its that and sticky noble hops that remain in the finish. Covers 7% very well, not a hint that its that strong. I can believe that people want to session this. Quite characterful and complex.

AtlAggie (241) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 25, 2008
33cl bottle. Pours hazy golden color with hints of orange, smallish white head. Nose of yeast and malts with touch of citrus. Flavor follows the aroma, lots of yeast, malty sweetness, but not over the top. Balanced out by light hops and some citrus and honey notes. Found it to be really well balanced and very drinkable. Nice beer.
