Yellowish golden colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is fruity, wooden, floral and also has some mild toffee and sweet maltiness to it. Flavour is sweet malts, some fruity and floral notes along with a nice earthy/grassy bitterness towards the finish. Mild toffee too. Hides the abv rather well, and in fact I’ve written "rather thin palate"...
Draught at SBWF. Cloudy amber, coarse head. Green hop aroma. Sweet with medium body and soft mouthfeel. Caramelly wit resiny very bitter finish. A bit aggressive. rlgk (18851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2013

draft @ ACBF 2012 // head was beyond ridiculous (especially considering the ABV), Urbain was scraping it off with a spatula as he was pouring it from a pitcher // murky brown orange // smells very, very hoppy, peaches, apricots, mandarin, super concentrated pine resin,… very sweet also loads of sticky sugar (mainly candy) & fruity syrupiness,… // taste is very sweet at first (almost got a five squared flashback), fruit syrup, very fruity, candy sugar, nectar, honey, cloudberry jam,… then bam huge lasting unbalanced almost floral bitterness, huge dry pine hop finish (very, very piny – you get the 300+ IBU’s), booze, liqueur,… // syrupy body, low carb. // unbalanced, ridiculous, memorable & special Koelschtrinker (20768) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 31, 2012
Konzentriert hopfiger Beginn mit grasigen und vergleichsweise geringen Bitternoten. Der Hopfen bleibt stark und kann sich kaum entbreiten. Extrem intensiv, dennoch sauber. 9/12/10/12//12

Tap @ ACBF 2012. Amber color, cloudy. Tobacco and malt in the aroma. Very sharp oily hopbitter flavor, with cigar tobacco, citrus, malt and peppermint. Dried tropical fruit. Peach pineapple. Complex, but also a palate destroyer. Extreme but quite pleasant.
