Bottled
Pours a very very light brown body with huge foaming thick white head that stays
Big rye & hops aroma
The hoppiest rye beer I've had and I think that creates a unbalanced conflictin flavour that is certainly interesting
Slightly to much fizz tbh

Found it here in Serbia, bottle 0,33 l

A - Brandy mahogany amber color, excellent creamy foam, medium carbonation. Love on first sign.
S - Refreshing and nice. Hops and fresh malt. Some caramel in it.
T/M - Creamy with warm aftertaste, also bitterness in the back. Malty and spicey.

O - Except that warm alcohol taste in the back i do not like, everything else is very good.

33cl bottle. Clear orange pour with a medium height white head with good retention. Smells like honey, citrus and pineapple. The taste is more bitter and dry than the aroma suggested. Herbal hops, some honey and citrus.
