Bottle 33 cl. Pours a cloudy, yellowish golden with a lacing, white head. Intriguing, spicy aroma. Rich, malty body, has an odd overripe fruit character to it. Somewhat yeasty leading up to a very bitter finish. Starts off well but turns rougher the further you dig in. 061217 TaxiDriver (1847) - Stadland, GERMANY - NOV 12, 2017
A light sweet smell, a litte bit fruity. The large white creamy head has a long duration, the body is pale yellow. A light bitter taste, a little bit metalic and fruity. The body is light and creamy with a lively carbonation. julesxxl (90) - Cholet, FRANCE - OCT 26, 2017

330ml bottle pours pale yellow with foamy white bubbles. Tropical aromas of pineapple, tangerine, yeast and floral characters. Grassy flavours of pine lime, grapefruit, citrus hops, straw and yeast. Medium carbonation and strong fruit characters hide the 9% alc vol well. Mild bitter finish with lemon tartness. peponi (2053) - Strzelce Wielkie, POLAND - OCT 12, 2017

330mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 13/10/19 beerman33190 (94) - FRANCE - SEP 22, 2017
Pours a hazy vibrant yellow/straw body, firm white cream.
Decent nose - yeasty notes of pear, white pepper, apricot with complimentary hop notes of citrus & pine with an underlying biscuit & toast malt.
Good weight on the palate, sort of creamy & silky, kind of chewy, full without nearly feeling like a 9% beer!
Nice maltiness upfront - toast, cracker biscuit, touch of vanilla, combines with more of those pear, apricot & citrus notes, spicy toward the finish, bitterness subdued.
Not much different from the original from memory, still, a very nice beer!
Honey, tangerine aromas. Thickish palate, quite sweet with bitter finish. A rich imperial ipa.
