Quite a carbonated brew so much so that it produced a substancial head of fluffy white foam running out of the glass and onto my counter.
Hazy golden sunshine color.
Aroma was malty and tart smelling with green apples and spices.
Taste to me was borderline wit beer with the addition of bottle lemonn juice.
Drinks smooth and refreshing but do so cautiously because at 8 abv the alcohol is well hidden.
Hey, it's a good beer that drinks well.

I won't be the first to say that this is absolutely the top. A very tasty beer, with lots of esters. Almost perfect.

L: golden, pilsener look, quite thin foam, nicely sticking on the glass;
S: lovely, banana, very soft hops, flowergarden;
T: round, but not too sweet, full of hops, but whitout the bitterishness;
M: a little too much carbonation perhaps, but what am I nagging...An impressive, complete creation;
O: you can wake me up at night for this one!!

330ml bottle poured into a goblet. ABV 8.4%.

A - Poured a hazy gold with a 1cm head. Head was quickly gone and no lacing.

S - Sweet bread, fruity with bananas & lemons, herbal notes.

T - Sweet malts, some bananas, citrus, hint of spice, hint of booze.

M - Medium-heavy body, average carbonation, some tang, sticky sweet finish.

O - Decent beer but it wasn't a stand out for me.
