Bottle from Mitra Bunnik, BB 09.2020. Clear amber color, big rocky off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel and bready malts, sweet yellow fruit, peach, pine but not in the way hops give it. Grapefruit bitterness, dry pine, cookie and caramel sweetness. Well balanced, but a bit too made up for me. I like to see more from the hops.
Bottle at home. Clear darker golden color, white head. Aroma is malts, lovely hoppy, piney and tropical fruitish hoppiness. Flavor is malts, hops, resinous hops and nicely bitter. Medium body, medium and a bit fizzy carbonation. Very nice.
33cl bottle. Pours close to completely clear deep golden with a modest, off-white head. Fruity and piney with citrus, caramel and hints of herbs. Moderate to medium sweet with medium flavour intensity and ditto bitterness. Quite enjoyable.
Pours hazy-murky orange, just a bit of white foam on top. Nose has some spruce resins, quite intense actually, kind of like smelling a fresh Christmas tree. Taste is balanced, that spruce, while still strong, is made somewhat softer with fruitiness and citrus. Interesting combo and actually seems to almost work. Quite successful experiment, I would say.
Bottle from Alus Celle, Riga. Intense piney floral nose. The beer starts nice intense fresh fruity piney, very deep and sessionable. Round and floral, the body has hints of grain there, lots of fresh fruitiness. Easy to drink, lots of piney fruitiness with floral hops in the aftertaste. Nice balanced with lots of pine needles there.
