oh6gdx (25974) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottled (thanks sayravai, who left the bottoms up for me). Hazy orange colour, small white head. Aroma is citric and a bit acidic yet still hoppyish bitterness. Flavour acidic lemon and very dry hopping. Mouthdrying hopbomb in finish. Not a favourite, but still quite interesting.

fiulijn (19872) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2008
Bottle from La Cave Bulles, Paris
Blond color; too much carbonation, very lively, huge head, almost like whipped eggwhite, but with a very nice perlage. Nice aroma, dry, spicy (cloves), hops. Dry mouthfeel, light malt aroma, a bit floreal, with traces of yeast. Strong bitterness (just a bit harsh, maybe not the best hops). Refreshing.
