3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
375 ml bottle @ HBF2013. Pours a clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma is rather strong and pungent with dried apricot, mango and citrus. Flavour of sweet fruits, floral hops, mango and passion fruit. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a fruity finish with some pungent notes. Refreshing stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
37,5 cl bottle @ HBF
Aroma has fruit candy and quite nothing else. Flavour is odd – feels like gummy bears in water. Also some grainy feeling. Weird stuff, this has lots of fruit candy but does not feel sweet.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruby golden ale. White head. Aroma is like mixed fruit juice, mostly orange with some cranberry or something. Flavor is fruity and at times is good but at others seems chemy or glue-like. Having this breakfast is not a great idea but it doesn’t necessarily suck either.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Hazy orange with a lacy white head. Nose is cherry Life Savers with hints of banana and plastic. Medium light with a soft tingle. Taste is herbal cherry and candi with a dry, minerally finish. Not a bad choice for a brunch cocktail.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong citrus aroma, that gave off a secondary aroma of cigarettes. Yeah, like somebody had just smoked. Neon yellow body, foamy white head throughout the ample. Can’t remember if I ever had a beer from New Zealand. This was a strange fruit beer, it had a touch of chalkiness to it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Highly carbonated tang-colored, lush, lacy cover that drapes the glass. Aroma of Flintstone multi-vitamins with a definite citrus influence. Orange wheaty body, again with some vitamin-like chalkyness to it. Artificial cherry and cardboard notes. Tangy bubblegum finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
375ml corked and wired dark green bottle. Appears hazy bright yellow with a pillowy loose white head. Nose is lemon sherbet with hints of cherry and banana. Taste is sweet sherbet lemon with the cherries coming through at the end. Low bitterness and malt character. Quite light bodied for the ABV which probably suits the style but it still somehow feels artificial. A largely failed experiment in my opinion.
