2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nez fleuri et caramélisé, robe tirant sur l’ambré. En bouche, l’amertume prend le dessus, sans laissé vraiment de place aux arômes. Assez moyen.

500 ml bottle @ Henderson’s, Edinburgh, rated on 2015-07-28
Clear golden orange beer with big white head leaving lacing. Aroma has grapefruit, resin, peach and mango. Flavor has grapefruit, orange and malts. Palate is thin with strong carbonation and some bitterness. Finish has medium bitterness and feels a bit watery. Aftertaste has orange and grapefruit. Crisp and refreshing but too thin. Bonus for organic.

Initially promises much with a bit of a punchy nose and a good golden colour. Head last longer than some but the taste is a bit hollow and relies on the acidity to stand. Strawman to be honest.

Amber coppery pour with minimal head, smell is more grape than the advertised grapefruit. Stale citrus grows on you but the palette is not as fresh as I would like it. Overall pleasant combination of citrus and hops.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500ml bottle from Tesco. Room temperature (cool kitchen) poured into tulip glass.
Nice, light coloured ale.
Very mellow and sweet at the beginning. Hard to pinpoint the flavours. Turns a bit earthy, wood, some light fruits but MOSTLY an earthy, dare I say organic taste. Finishes off with a hoppiness but not too bitter. Almost a sugar coated citrus.

Bottle from tesco. The main thing about this is I can taste the wheat. If I wanted to taste the wheat id have a wheat beer. Otherwise I enjoyed it.
