4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle. Quite a special one here. Pours a bright orange color with an abundant creamy white head. Long lasting foam. Aroma is on the sweet side with a ’predominance of caramel notes and fruits. Peaches and rad brries in the nose with molasses and caramel. Taste is sweet again with a slight tartness in the back. Burnt sugar, fruits and some yeast. Slight alcohol burn too. Full mouthfeel and good amount of carbonation. Overall, very interesting, also if the wheat character is not up front and the fruits could be pushed further to me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Label doesn’t mention blackthorn as the description here on RB does. Hazy orange with a small white head. Honey, grain, straw, candlewax. Medium/full body, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. Seems pointless to me, but inoffensive and hides the alcohol well.

Nice wheaty zesty nose, cloves, touch of pepper tickling the nostrils, citrus hints. Similar flavours, touch of kiwi fruit, grapefruit bitterness, nice wheaty bubblegum hints, light grapefruit & kiwi bitter linger on the finish. Hides alcohol well, but a bit fizzy and a bit thin.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mi è piaciuta. La trovo originale e ben fatta. Bello il colore rosa arancio. Al naso si sentono i frutti selvatici utilizzati ed una acidità che fa pensare ad una lambic. In bocca attacco dolce, poi secca ed acida, comunque il tutto ben equilibrato; nasconde benissimo i 10 gradi.
