2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl. Bottle. Light copper color with a thin white head. Aroma has a bit of funky yeast and orange. Shows some acidic characteristics and earthy tones which are probably also attributable to the yeast. Flavors of orange, pine nuts, grassy hops and bread. Decidely fizzy, but not necessarily overcarbonated. Leaves a rather unpleasant tang on the back of the tongue and is almost harshly dry.
