(bottle date 14 093 - poured into a jet-rinsed Schneider glass)
A: liquid is a nectarine skin hue, hazy... fantastic, sparkly, cotton candy textured white foam - at first, it leaves a bizarre lacing pattern similar to the net-like pattern found on a cantaloupe - it later flattens out into connecting broad bands of lace... keeps a cap all the way down
S: this may be the first time I can honestly say I immediately recognized the aroma of Saphir hops - strawberry (and another berry - dried raspberry?)... strong rose-like floral phenolics... smells like a garden in spring
T: strawberry shortbread cookie... alcohol with a fruit brandy flavor in the finish... up front, a startlingly bold hop flavor and bitterness for a beer made in Germany - flowery, "noble" flavors... doughy undercurrent and a bit of a cookie maltiness and nutty note (perhaps from the yeast) in the aftertaste
M: soft, satiny flow... bit of lingering boozy warmth... mild drying sensation on the tongue... wondering if the extra hopping enhances the plushy texture of what's already probably a plumply round body
O: second time having this - the first time, years ago when it came out, I hate to admit, I may have drunk straight from the bottle while liquored up one night... mildly astonished just how flavorful and enjoyable this beer is... this bottle was only a couple months old - kinda curious how some of the older bottles I have compare... this is a wonderful hoppy alternative to your ubiquitous IPAs

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
One of my favorite new beers, I could possibly even consider this one for a session...a short one obviously.
A: very cloudy light orangish color with big large head, little lacing
S: bananas, faint sour apples, cloves and spices, hops
T: very much of the banana and caramel in the background with some hoppy spiciness up front.
M: light with more than avg carbonation
D: very very good beer that I can drink in large quantities, taste never gets old
Serving type: on-tap
