Nose is light herbals, spice, straw, citric peel, melon.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ The Clerkenwell Share. Thanks to whoever brought this along! Gold pour with a small white head. Nose is pretty sweet and fruity. Peach orchard. Apricot and nectarine fruit salad. Tangy fruit skin. Taste is has some wind barrel character. Lightly tart. A hint of booze. Some cheese/strawberry that I usually associate with sorachi ace. Plum and lemon zest. Very soft carbonation makes the beer feel a bit leaden on the palate. Interesting, but all over the place.
