Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a small off white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is citrus, funk, and oak. Thin mouthfeel with nice tart citrus, funk, and nice sour finish. Very impressive.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, generously shared by Kenny at the Big Friday tasting. It pours lightly hazy golden with a minimal white head. The nose is wood, vanilla, coconut, sour peach, apricot and sherbet. The taste is crisp, tart, sherbet, sour peach, apricot, some acidity juicy white grape and a touch of alcohol with a dry, tart finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. A lot of Duck Duck Gooze character about it. Smooth, crisp and very drinkable. One of my favourites of the box set.
