Bottle. Golden with a white foam. Aromas are gooseberry with kiwi, melon and marmalade. Hay with floral notes. Fruity with yeast and light pine. Flavours are sweet jammy lemon with dry, woody and yeast notes. Peppery, pithy bitter grapefruit and green pine to finish. Herbal, floral and dry on the aftertaste. Very good.

From Beer n Spirits, Knaresborough. Difficult to add to the very eloquent description provided by the O.P. Lovely sharp grapefruit aroma that doesn’t transfer to the taste as much as I expected. A hint of softness on the tongue, and some peach and kiwi fruit in the finish. The tang lingers around the mouth and, I think, there was some toasted almonds lurking in there too. This is sublime stuff, without the huge alcohol kick that beersof this taste tend to come with.
