Cloudy orange, frothy head of big bubbles. Well lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, blossom, resin. Medium body. The taste has a malty base and a powerfull roof of hops: earthy, herbal, fruity, piny. Herbal finish. Long. A very good lager tasting not exactly like lager.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft glass @ Billie’s Bier Kafétaria. Amber / orange, creamy white head. Nose is bitter orange hop nose with quite a bit grass, dried orange peel, caramel is light, light yeast, served too cold it feels to me,… Taste is dried orange peel, a bit more on the bitter grass side than fruity, caramel, light iron note, grapefruit, resin,… A bit thin & a touch iron-like body,… It didn’t feel optimal,… It mimicked the profile of a typical USA DIPA a bit too much but you felt a bit like some caramel, malt & fruity-character was missing due to this. Still a pretty pleasant & easy to drink to drink beer. Just a bit more bitter grass forward, a bit thinner & less fruity / hoppy forward than expected.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Hazy orange, lasting white head. Fruity hop aroma, sweet malts. Peachy stonefruit hop character, excoriating bitterness. Too bitter for a lager, even for a pilsner, and the sweet malts are unwelcome if this is truly the style that was aimed for. It’s one thing to call out lagers for being pissy and dull, but it’s a whole other thing to miss the mark on a style so completely as to be unidentifiable.
