Bottled (backlog). Ambery orange colour with a small creamy head. Aroma is zest, herbs, some avocado and mild sweet maltiness. Flavour is sweet malts, some herbs, mild avocado and melon as well as some zestiness. Smooth, and quite a "session" feeling over this one.

BOTTLE. Cloudy orange with thick white foam head.. Sweet tropical, fruity hops, sweet candy (chewing gum) on the nose.. Real sweet hops & a sherbet vibe upfront.. Going to melon & hoppy middle finishing with sticky fruity hops.. Lots going on.. Sourced Cellarbrations @ Capel

Hm, har lite svårt att bestämma mig om denna. Den har lite skum bismak men totalt hyfsat trevlig. Lite av en dubbelnatur.

Bit over the consume-by, but what the heck!
Pastel orange and slightly misted with a foamy, rocky white head. Rich, resinous and fruity, clean hops on the nose that are seemingly drenched in grapefruit concentrate, peach and apricots. The palate emulates the aroma displaying a bitter, sharp grapefruit base lifted by notes of pale stonefruit, tangerine and sweet cantaloupe. Carbonation is low. There is a subtle minty note late. Quite light in body with not much to say of malt flavour. This is solid fruit juice pale ale. Very tangy, almost tart in the finish. I love this one. This is a fun beer to drink. Alcohol is well hidden. Sessionable stuff despite the strength!! (33cL, BB 17/03/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)
