nickd717 (4429) - Sofia, BULGARIA - FEB 18, 2017
Draft in the Poconos. Is this supposed to be ranch dressing flavored? It sort of is. Hazy yellowish golden pour, nice head retention. Aroma is ranchy, faint citrus, bread, floral notes. The flavor is milder than expected, dry, medium bitter for the style. Not much hop flavor. Medium body, average carbonation. Ok only.

EerieDrinks (84) - Malm, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2017
2 finger, white head. Semi-clear, golden coloured beer. Aroma is sweet, pungent fruits. Honeydew, orange, pineapple and passionfruit. I wouldve guessed Centennial hops but apparently its Azaccas doings. Slight whiskey smokiness in the aroma too. Tastes like a darker version of the aroma. Grapefruit bitterness is prominent and quite tart and dishcloth-y at the back. A bit sticky. Feels pretty heavy. Overall, good but not really what Im looking for in this style and its a bit too boozy.
