3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Well, what can I say? I poured this beer into a Badger pint glass and it was "Frothy Man". The aroma was super fresh, citrus hoppy and with a bit of barnyard in the background that was doing itís best not to be in the background! I took a sip and do you know what the first thing that came into my head was? Ooh Ooh Mr Peevly! Remember the Hair Bear Bunch and Mr Peevly the Zoo director? Iím not sure where that came from, but the flavour reminded me of 1970ís Swizels and Love Hearts! A Sherbet Fountain no less. Hey, this probably explains why much of my formative years were spent in the dentists chair :-( Moving swiftly back to the beer though, it really positively danced around in your mouth. Itís medium sour of course with lots of zesty citrus fruit up front and a more mellow, almost bitter finish. This beer has everything and if I hadnít drunk it all myself, iíd share it with you! Citra in a Saison "really" works! Wow.
