STEVIE_NIX (35) - - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle from cotteridge wines. this has a lovely hop aroma on pouring. Very resinous. Pours a dark amber with small white head. Taste is initially light but with a big hop bitterness coming in right after. Hints of spice then are overtaken by a real grapefruity peachy mouth. I enjoyed this the more i drank it. the taste remained in my mouth for a good while after. reminded me of Arbors Yakima valley from a few years back. pretty good id say.

MelvinKalksma (1221) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, orange, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Hazy/turbid golden/amber beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium white/off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and orange; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Great appearance and palate. Aroma and flavour are good as well, but nothing to write home about.
