Head: white, medium, frothy, avg. retention. Colour: golden, clear.
Aroma: sweet fruit and flowers, ripe peach, honey and some harsher hop notes too (faint pine/resin).
Taste: start sweet fruity, followed by moderate bitterness with astringent zesty notes. The fruitiness though, continues all the way through to the finish.
