Beesbeer (452) - WALES - JUL 19, 2013
Very enjoyable. Suprising too. This was far less heavy than I imagined. Starts with a strong floral/grassy aroma, then the flavour is mildly grapefruit with some hint of peachy fruit, then a strong bitter streak, followed by a rounded biscuit ending. Powerful. Enjoyable.
