2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a golden, very pale, watery-looking body with a small, white, short-lived head that leaves some lacing. Fairly strong aroma that is quite crisp, with notes of pale malts, citrus, caramel and faint hints of tropical fruits. In the moderate flavours the fruity notes are more of the generic kind, without any tropical notes. The taste is light to moderate sweet with a light bitter finish. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel, light body, dry texture, lively carbonation. Not too bad.

Bottle. Pours yellow with a big creamy head. Aroma is very fruity with yeast and hops, some crisp champagne-ish whiffs with minerals, wine grapes and Nelson Sauvin. Body is full with average carbonation. Flavour is bitter with peach and light tropical notes of passion fruit as well as some pepper and a sweet fruity finish. Very fruity, yet crisp. Curious indeed, as well as quite nice.
