Bottle from Paiste2002, thanks! Blonde. Peach and melon in the aroma. Initial fruit flavors (peach, melon, pineapple) followed by an earthy oily hopbitterness, lingering on in the aftertaste. Full of flavor, but the balance could be better. BeerandBlues2 (13323) - Escondido, California, USA - DEC 12, 2008

Expensive, big bottle shared with Arild and Finn H. at The Rake, London Bridge. Slightly unclear, sunset coloured body. Decent off-white head. Floral hoppy to the nose. Tangerine taste supported by hints of dark spices and quite heavily, dry hopped ending. Well integrated alcohol. Rather sweet textured, but still pleasant to drink (01.08.2009). thewolf (12598) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2008
Bottle @ Chris_o’s Pre-Beer Exposed Tasting, September 2008.hopdog (12584) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2008
pours clear golden with a small, creamy white head. Aroma is super hoppy (pine) and wonderfully fruity. Fine, dry mouthfeel. Flavour has some forest, pine, low yeastiness. Not much maltiness behind the heavy hoppiness.
22oz bottle. Poured a medium and lightly hazy golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of bread, citrus, candi sugar, and fruity. Tastes of bread, black pepper and other spices, fruity, citrus, and floral. Alcohol content hidden. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - DEC 19, 2008
22oz bottle-pours a rich white head that laces and hazy yellow/gold color. Aroma is pine/citrus hops, some mange, coriander/pepper, medium malt-bready. Taste has a lot going on. Perfumy/spice/citrus hops-somewhat bitter, spice-too much, black pepper (which dominates and detracts), some medium malt/grainy, yeast. Dry. OK for sipping. Some alcohol comes through. Thanksjwc215 for picking this out.
