Outstanding. Light sour aroma. But yeasty on taste with lemony tone. Got mango and pineapple and has a superb mouthfeel. A dry finish. One of the best in its variety.

Bottle @ Bruce’s. Cheers to Leighton via Josh. The pour’s gold with a small head. The aroma’s of tropical fruits - mango, pineapple. A bit of earthy yeast. Rotting peaches. Similar flavors. More peach, sweet yeastiness. Caramelized pineapple. Light body, soft carbonation. Actually pretty good stuff. A good offering from OZ.
