3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours a mostly clear, golden-yellow with a medium, white cream head. Bready aroma with hints of spice, fruits and phenols. Fairly sweet flavor, more spice and fruit, some light caramel, mild hops in the finish. Light to medium in body, very smooth, with average carbonation. Not wild by any stretch of the imagination, so I think that’s something of a misnomer. Very good, though, and quite drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Mostly clear, golden ale with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. Fantastic retention. The aroma is herbal and fruity – mango, lavender and mild clove – lightly acidic and funky. Full-bodied and mildly creamy with moderate carbonation. Bittersweet, herbal, spicy flavor. Leans bitter, but presents nice tropical fruit sweetness to compliment the citrus pith and rind bitterness. Lengthy bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale straw-coloured pour. The nose is very fruity and almost tropical. The hops have a nice citrusy character that accentuates the fruitiness of the yeast. Sort of a mix of pineapple and dried plums. Lightly minerally bitterness and a fairly nice integration of yeast and hops – not particularly Bretty though.
