This hit the spot - really well put together and the balance is superb. Medium full bodied biscuit toffee body with a lovely floral bitterness that is both dense and lively at the same time. A pleasure to drink.

Tap at the Brimmer beer box. Golden amber colour, small golden head. Aroma is quite grainy, fruity too, tangerine, touch of lemon maybe, quite biscuity too and maybe a bit of Belgian yeastiness. Taste is nice, fruity up front, slightly tropical, nice bitterness but not overwhelming. Finish brings a bit of spice, bready malt and a touch of grapefruit. Nice in mouth, touch of carbonation keeps it lively but not overly fizzy.

Draught at Kamikaze. Malty nose, cinnamon, orange. Glowing orange-amber color with lace. Malty, spicy flavor, grassy hops with orange, honey, peach. Interesting. Pretty nice, though not so surprising.
