3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home in London - picked up at the brewery. Pours mostly clear yellow-gold with outrageous effervescence and a super tight, pure white foam head. This beer probably has some of the strangest carbonation I’ve encountered. Lively with big bubbles such that it almost looks like floaties; interesting. The aroma holds dried lemon rind and straw. Light sweet flavor with a pronounced dry mineral character, bitter citrus rind, some grapefruit and tangerine. Light bodied with average to lively carbonation. Dry finish, moderately bitter, more lemon peel, dry and very pithy grapefruit and tangerine, well and dry pale malts, hints of hay. Pretty good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle on a boiling hot day outside Partizan. It pours hazy pale golden with a small white head. The nose is earthy, juicy tangerine, grapefruit, mango and a touch of straw. The taste is crisp, smooth, orange, tangerine, pithy grapefruit, pine, light earth and straw with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth, tasty and utterly drinkable. I destroyed a few of these in a row no problem.
