Draught at Qbrick. Pipe tobacco and light fruit cake nose. with a bit of citrus. Reddish-amber, no head. Strong bitter citrus initial / perfumey orangey mid and final. Thin-medium body, with some astringency. Interesting. Unusual flavors, to be sure. Pleasant as a fruit beer.

It poured a nice amber gold with a great head & nice fruity aroma. A nice malty, lemony beer.Lots of citrus pretty good, as time went on the flavor of lemon became a bit much. Overall, not bad.

Draught at Tadg’s. Huge citrus fruit nose, dekopon all the way, and sweet orange. Soft and oily, rich malt and tons of fruit, citrus, tart, also rather bitter from the fruit as well. Good, but the fruit is a bit overwhelming.
