7.4% version. Appearance- amber with a slight haze, a small foamy off-white head. Aroma- malty, hints of honey, fruit salad, apricot, berries, oaky woody traces, hops. Taste- fruit juice, strawberries, hints of tropical fruits, mango, earthy malt in the background. Fairly restrained mouthfeel for the abv. Spicy notes, woody tannins in the finish. Interesting stuff.

Collaboration of To Öl with Siren, an IPA with Citra hops and cedar wood, bottle from Gedeelde Vreugde in Sint-Niklaas. Tightly, silky, papery lacing, medium thick, egg-white, creamily structured head, retaining well over a warm peachy golden blonde beer with somewhat khaki tinge, medium hazy with the haze being perturbed by quite vivid, refined sparkling - the whole thing looks appetizing enough. Quite dank but elegantly fragrant aroma of orange blossoms, fresh lime, raw shallot, sweetclover flowers, jasmin, fresh white bread, biscuit, hints of margarine, cheese spread, minerals, and finally, in warming up, indeed a clear whiff of cedar wood oil, bright and green, but not overpowering the delicate display of Citra fragrance. Graciously restrained fruity onset, sweet and elegant, reminiscent of green melon, pear, some yellow raspberry and a vague hint of mango, with a slight sourish touch; carbonation remains soft, mouthfeel is very supple and lean, a tad thin perhaps, but still oily. Lean, thinly biscuity malt base, upon which a delicate retronasal bouquet of citrusy and exotically floral aromas is built, orange orchard blossoming, orchids, with a dash of mango thrown in - and again that ever so subtle hint of bright green cedar wood, lifting things up rather than overwhelming them. Ends with a mild but persisting, very pleasant, bit spicy and grapefruity hop bitterness. This delicate creation is an exercise in elegance and balance, with the cedar wood, acting as an extra uplifting aroma, working well with the Citra properties. Very nice one, but knowing how quickly Citra ages, this is without a doubt one to drink as fresh as possible. Ritzn (1984) - GERMANY - JAN 2, 2018
Aroma is pine cone grassy juice wheat yeast some grapefruit mandarin melisse. Taste is grass juice with medium bitter slight sweet resin. Medium drinkable. I perceive dry lambiek type chalk. Heavy but still somehow fresh. Had better from siren. MelvinKalksma (1826) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2017 Turbid golden/amber beer with slight yeast and with a slight/medium off-white/beige head. Medium aroma; taste starts medium sweet and ends slightly bitter and dry. Loads of orange and tropical fruit; with some wood and citrus as well. Pinball (12598) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2017
clear yellow to orange, small white head.
quite crisp aroma, very malty, but also some super dry hops. spicy herbal notes, but somehow the overall feel to it is very good.
flavor is brown cookie sweet, herbal notes, spices, and hops. very messy and reminds me of italian beer where they've spiced the beer up so much the beer flavors are lost in spices. cedar can be sensed, but imo, really, this is just too weird.

Kicsit opálos narancsszín, némi vörössel. Trópusi gyümölcsös illat. Citrusos, malátás, édeskés ízvilág. Egyszerű, de nagyon finom. LazyPyro (1798) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2017
