3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at JDW WIQ, London. It pours a clean golden color with a small off-white head. Aroma is spicy and herbal with some green tea, thyme and sage. Taste is sweet fruity herbal and spicy, with more sage, thyme, green tea, strawberries and peaches. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, not a spice herbal fan, but the fruity sweetness here complements them well, nicely done.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Olde Dog, Herongate. Pours a pale gold with a thin white head. Licorice, aniseed and orange peel on the nose, thin and light on the palate. An initial licorice and coriander seed kick has an orange oil edge to it. Quite a dry licorice wood aftertaste with a citrus echo. Not entirely to my taste.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2012 On tap at The Philarmonic in Liverpool, England. Golden colour with a small white head. Floral hoppy nose and light fruity. Strange brew if they mean it is a witbier. But ok, it is really good. Frutiy and cictic hoppy flavour, with some caramel in the background.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted this in The Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in March 2010. Cask, handpump dispence. Crystal clear pale amber with a thin white head. Superb Del Monte aroma with fragrant tropical fruit notes. Thin refreshing mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Pale malt base leads to a juicy plethora of fruit notes with honeydew melon, cherry, lychees and pineapple. Slight bitter tang of hops which enhance the fruity malt component in the refreshing aftertaste. Finish has sweet syrupy fruity overtones. Good summer session ale.
