My rating: 5
My beeradvocate.com rating: 4.65
My ratebeer.com rating: 4.4
Intro: A 330ml bottle, batch 583, with a best before date of 17th July 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy darkish orange colour with a just over one finger white head with great retention and nice lacing.
Aroma: Strong tropical and citrus fruits. Mango, pineapple, apricot, grapefruit and orange rind.
Taste: Blast of mango and pineapple sweetness balanced with grapefruit and orange rind bitterness, for some bittersweet goodness. A dry and long bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Dry, medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: In my opinion, although not quite as good as GBG Beer Week 2016, this was another home run by Stigbergets. It’s got the stunning aromas, and the wonderful juicy tropical and citrus flavours that I enjoy, on top of the nice lasting bitterness. Brilliant stuff.
