Bottle. Pours a deep golden straw with large billowy bright white head. Aromas of light stone fruits, apricots, plums etc, dough yeast and a touch of earthiness. Not too bad. Flavours show some fruity sweetness before a very dry finish. Lively mouthfeel. Nice beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle from Slow Beer. There is a lot of foam in the initial pour and it takes a while to settle but when it does there is a bright orange beer. There is a lot of fruitiness in the aroma with peach, melon and plum coming through. The flavour is full and rich in the mouth with a strong body a slight alcohol burn on the palate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy rose gold with a large white head that lasts very well. Lightly funky and spicy aroma with plums or cherries, light toffee, some banana. Taste has some toasty sweetness with plums and banana, a little tartness that’s also plummy, finishes dryish with tangy spices (pepper, anise) some wood. Highly appropriate for Australian Christmas - it’s got some European seasonal touches, but is light-bodied enough to work in the heat. Effort.
