This was a great beer. I have had this beer on several occasions but this one was the best. Maybe I had a bad batch before or maybe I can finally appreciate it. The beer was poured in a frosted mug and there was a half an inch of foam. I did taste a little bit of fruit in the beer but cannot pinpoint which one(s). Enjoyed the first sip as much as the last. I am looking forward to my next glass.

For some reason the draught beer seems less turbud than the bottled one.
The smell and taste is also different but these beers are few and far between and both glass and appearance is different...so what am I trying to say...

Nevermind, this beer is full of taste and exotic flavours. Grapes, spices, citrus, bananas...you name it. All flavours glow. I'll have another pink elephant right after this one. Cheers
