2.35/5  rDev -23.5%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

The beer builds an enormous airy head while slowly being poured into the glass. The colour is dark amber-red (40 EBC), the liquid is a bit hazy.

The smell is sweet with lots of caramel-toffee. Hoppy notes of grapefruit, lemonade, resin and spruce. Hints of perfumed detergents in the background.

The taste got harsh bitterness, sour fruits and sharp bitterness. Hints of wood and dried flowers. Light body. The aftertaste is bitter with nots of green plants/tree sap. The finish is bitter with chemical flavours.

The carbonation is sharp, which is surprising given the high head. The liquid is light and a bit harsh.

I think this one is on the way of going off. Not good.

3.78/5  rDev +23.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A: A massive beige head fills the glass. After a little while the liquid starts to replace the head. The color is hazy amber. Rich lacings.

S: Bitter hops together with floral; pine and citric. Nettles and grass along side with tropical fruitsalad - pineapple, grapefruit and oranges, but also peaches and apricots. Caramell malt, semi-sweet.

T: Follows the smell, but the fruityness wins over the bitterness and the nettles. The sweetness from the caramell malt balances the fruits.

M: Body is on the lighter side, while carbonation is rather strong. Aftertaste is short and mainly bitter.

O: This is a bit thin but otherwise not bad at all.
