3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liqor. Pours clear straw with a fluffy and sticky white head. Nose is all about the zing and zest of citrus with some heavy stone fruits. A solid sweet yeast behind it all. Belgian inspired but hop forward stuff - think zesty lemon rind and peach. Very quaffable and quite balanced. A Summer’s day drink. Solid stuff

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a cloudy pale straw colour with a two-finger white frothy head that retained well and laced OK. Carbonation low with small bubbles. Aroma subtly of light malt and strong but very nice sweet floral and spicy hops. Taste of light malt but over-ridden quickly by strong but nice tropical fruity and spicy bitterness. Light body. There is a hint of cloves (wheat) aroma as the beer warms. Smooth, crisp, very refreshing.

330ml bottle from BWS. Hazy golden body beneath a pillowy white head that reduces to a stable lace. I get aromas of lemons, apricots, grapefruit, pines and golden malts. Palate is smooth and refreshing with a medium body and bittersweet flavours making for easy Summer drinking. Mildly resinous hop finish. No complaints here.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer pours a light misty golden colour with a small white head that hangs around for a while. It is a medium bodied ale with a lively carbonation. The aroma is very pleasant and quite robust for a golden/blonde ale with passionfruit and floral notes filling the nasal cavities. The taste starts with light bready malts for maybe half a second and then the hops come screaming through with tropical and stone fruit featuring. The flavours finish with a firm bitterness and a semi dry finish making this one hell of a refreshing drink.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Definitely signature floral aroma. Golden straw pour with a dishsoapy head. Not very attractive. Spicy taste is a combo of carbo and the hops. Thin malt body doesnt provide much. Refreshing, not outstanding.

First thing that strikes you are those floral hops. Slight citrus, vanilla smell. Smooth on first taste. Almost a crisp, icy sense on middle tongue. Slightly underwhelming finish. Got the Feral malts.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours gold with a small head.
Nose shows grassy and spicy hops, soft light malt and hay.
Similar flavours with the same spicy hop notes and some light sweet pilsner-like malt followed by an assertive bitterness.
Nice moderately light body, could use a bit more carbonation though.
