Best before date: 08/08/2013.
Appearance: Amber color with fizzy white head that hold relatively well. A bit of lacing. Medium low perceived effervescence.
Aroma: Medium to medium high in intensity. Amazing depth and elegance. You can pretty much pick up on anything from citrus (Grapefruit, Orange, Coriander) to all sorts of flowery notes (Mint, Roses, Pollen.) Pretty amazing stuff, especially considering this bottle probably isn't that fresh.
Taste: WOW, i love this! It's just straightforward delicious! The profile is less citrusy leaning and more flowery, nutty and toffee-ish.
Palate: The palate is spot on for my taste. Medium to medium full bodied. Medium low carbonation. Alcohol warmth is subdued but in balance. Medium to medium high bitterness. Finishes sweetish with lingering citrusy, earthy, minty aftertaste.
Overall: Wow, i can't believe this is scored so low! (Relatively speaking) It has the most amazing balance, is enjoyable, has a lot of depth, finesse and flavor. Probably just lacking a bit in the flavor depth department but it's still world class. On a side note, after checking the hops used, i have got to say, they really achieved something special. For those of us who brew, to get 4 different hops in and make the hop character taste seamless, rich and deep is just nothing short of masterful.
