3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, started at 9C, liked it more as it warmed a little. Clear amber with a large white head that never disappears. Interesting aroma with slightly toasted malt and lots of fruit - dried, ripe, under-ripe; citrus, stone (apricots, sugar plums), tropical, pears. Some baldly sugary booze too. A big, fat, complex/possibly confused noseful. And then it’s a lot lighter-bodied than expected, although it’s certainly still sweet. I’ll withdraw "baldly" from "sugary booze" too. Medium low carbonation is very nice - just enough to lighten and no more. Sweet hay and some toasted notes, caramelized banana, intense citrus that seems almost sour, some herbs. Firm bitterness. Interesting beer - I don’t really understand how it’s so characterful despite being really very clean.

Amber with a foamy head. Peach, tea and yeast in the aroma. Dried apricot, yeast and tea feature in the hoppy and sweet taste. A bit hard on the alcohol but overall a very good beer

Hazy amber orange. Long lasting bright white head. Great looking beer.
Nose is stonefruit, peach mostly, peach pits and caramel.
Taste is stone fruit, banana, bubble gum, rum, and sweetness. Lots of character in this.
Medium bodied, light carbonation. Banana grows through drinking. Alcohol is well hidden. Good stuff.
