Bottle from Saucy Pears.
Appearance - beautiful amber with an attractive fluffy head.
Nose - orange and hinting of pineapple. Slight funky edge, very yeasty.
Taste - orangey yoghurt. Then it finishes with a tangy orange note.
Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish.
Overall - solid but not sure there should be this much yeast influence.

Deep, clear copper-red beer, with creamy white head. Fairly thick, with moderate carbonation. Strong caramel and grapefruit aroma, slightly floral, with a dry finish: pinewood, resin, faint burnt toast, and a lingering spicines. Rather in-your-face, but not at all bad.
