Deep orange colour on the body, cloudy, with almost two full fingers of white, thick head, with average retention.
Aroma has citrus, grapefruit, light tangerine, nice floral notes.
Lots of citrus on the taste, with lemon flowers, lemon leaves, citrus is dominating. Some orange here and there, kumquat, tangerine, only mildly bitter.
Medium body with good carbonation, numbing feeling on the mouth after a while because of all those lemons.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Erzbierschof Zurich (yup, they currently have a really nice stock of Baird bottles!) The citrus is hard to overlook, but there’s also nice things about this beer: Well-carbonized, a pinch of sourness, dry and refreshing. Definitely an outstanding fruit beer

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle (Pothouse, Tallinn)
Rich, almost biting preserved kumquatty aroma. Sweet, and very zesty. Much mellower taste. Pleasant full body, very fitting carbonation, neither flat not fizzy, just right. Nice sweet caramelly malts, a bit of a milkiness to them, plenty of citrussy hops, but not as zesty as I’d expected. Pleasant bitter bite in the finish, the preserved kumquat returns. Very nice full hops, a bit of seared fat, lovely. 7.5% - no way. Excellent brew, one of Baird’s best.
