3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
First half pour was suprisingly clearish golden, but levelled out with a sternly opaque second pour. No real head to speak of. Big chalky wheat, studded grassy nose - limestone and herb rubbed banana skin. Initial taste is shaved lemon, peppery rocket and brassy clove. Falls away quickly in taste, but firm carbonation throughout and a little clean tart strum. Finish is coppery wheat, just a wee bit wide of the mark for me - very involved for the low ABV but slips away cleanly on dewy herb linger.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, best before 2015-03-12. Hazy/unclear yellow with a large frothy white head. Lots of cloves in the nose. Flavour has banana, cloves, citrus, light raspberries, hay. Light body, watery texture, high carbonation, light sweet and bitter with light acidity. It’s quite refreshing and easy drinking all though I am not clove fan #1.
