Cloudy white cream. Aroma is spice. Taste is tangy bitterness. Not very sessional and not my sort of bitterness - a spicy bitter flavour.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml corked and caged bottle, champagne pop, wee gusher. Unclear brownish orange, big off-white foam eventually settles. Aroma is citrusy wit fruity. Yeasty citrus hoppy taste, funky wit spice, herbal, gets more tropical as it warms. Lively carbonation, medium bodied, well hopped. A nicer, fruity hybrid, but still : NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is lemon grass, clove and light sweet malts. Taste is pale malts with most the character arriving from the bitterness. Bitterness leaves a tanginess with some clove, lemon grass and tanin. Appearance is an amber / orange which is slightly hazy. The pearl head is a thin bubbly one with a bubbly body and retains fairly well.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml corked bottle pours a golden orange color with a huge white head that retains well and leaves some heavy lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild with some yeast and light fruits. Taste is much bolder with a spicy hop bitterness and a fruity and grainy malt sweetness finishing dry from the yeast. Medium bodied with generous carbonation providing a pleasant tingling on the tongue. A very well done brew that I highly recommend for others.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Special Edition bottle purchased at Sherbrooke Liquor in Edmonton, AB. Pours an opaque light golden color with a beautiful head. Aroma of hops, pine, and spices. Delicious beer, well balanced. Lots of zesty citrus notes - as a New Zealand beer it’s reminiscent of 8-Wired’s offerings but still absoutely unique. I’ll be getting this again!

Bottle sample during Calgary International Beerfest 2014. Briskly carbonated bright gold with a slight haze. Terrific gooseberry and guava hop character, a bit of pine, and some lovely subtle spice. Superb-- I went back for more!
