Draft at Isaac Newton’s. Pours honey with very little head. A bit of citrus on the nose. Grapefruit and floral notes on the tongue. I get a bit of earthiness on the finish kind of a woodsy thing. this is a beer that kicks you right in the bollocks. Fantastic!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. Mid yellow / straw colour with a thin white head and a little lacing. The initial aromas are reminisent of a beligian yeast and slighlty floral similar to Triple Karmeliet. The first flavour is lemon citrus and lovely Sorachi ace character with cocunut in the finish. Highly carbonated and slightly thin on the palete.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is spicy and rather herbal with fresh cut wood and light lemony notes. Taste brings more spice notes, herbal notes, lemony zest, woody notes and dusty yeast. Body is medium with a strong, bubbly, effervescent carbonation. Finishes with more fresh cut wood, peppery spice, fresh herbs, yeast notes, light lemon, and sweet maltiness.

On keg at the BrewDog bar in Edinburgh. Pours a golden colour with a thick white head. An orange citrus aroma with caramel and alcohol also. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lingering tangerine. Tasty.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From bottle. Pours golden with some yeast floaters and a tight white head. Complex fruity aroma, something I haven’t had before, some lime, zesty, lager yeast comes across very nicely with the other notes, slightly herbal, medicinal, floral. Taste has citrus, zest, exotic fruit, lime, light caramel malt and the lager yeast ties it all together, there are lots of flavors I haven’t experienced before. Crisp and refreshing on the palate, perfectly balanced. I could drink 5 pints of this. Top marks for originality, a unique beer

3.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma is fantastic and unusual with loads of fruit that has a white wine quality with a woody, earthy background, almost like an oaked chardonnay. The taste of the beer never really lives up to the aroma, with taste and body a little thin with a background of vaguely unpleasant sourness. An interesting beer nonetheless.
