3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yellowy colour with a rocky white head and a faint haze. The aroma at first instance is spicy with cloves and turmeric? Some bubblegum and banana as well, but the undoubted star is the spice. It is a tangy little bugger this one offering locquot, lemon, kumquat and maybe even a little cinnamon and cardamon. It’s endearing, quenching and likable.

Aroma of ginger and flavour of lemon makes this a refreshing summer drink. Maybe a little watery though...

On tap at Brothers Beer, Auckland, August 2014. A bit hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma and taste of lime, citrus, some spices and yeast. A bit strange to be honest.

massive head overflows everywhere, that was a bit of a surprise, i always enjoy weird things like that...anyway, lots and lots of orange is the most apparent thing, unfortunately there isn’t much complexity around it, and it doesn’t have much bite to balance. but it’s not bad.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear straw yellow color, thin white head and some visible carbonation.
Funky lemon nose mixed with some classic wit nose. Strange.
Lemon and pine taste. Very soapy. Some odd funk in this.
Heavy lemon tart feel to this. Needs more orange. Strange stuff

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Not my kind of style and this is definitely not how I would normally like this style. Loads of lemon zest and sour undertones. Doesn’t come together, not for me

1.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Tasted horrible. Lingering bad flavors due to the overuse of some ’special nz spice’...wouldn’t drink this, even if stuck on a deserted island with crates of this to spare.
