Pours cloudy orange with a soft white head. Another great beer from Roots. Fruity nose with a great rye character and a light herbal finish. Great hop balance throughout, aromatic in the hops and fruits. This brew is so easy to drink, great beer for having a few pints of.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Reaaallly unfiltered. Thick head. Gorgeous, absorbing fruity aroma - peach, thai basil, incredibly fresh malt, rye, cinnamon...and on it goes. Outstanding. Fresh rye character, light malts and a fruitiness that is lighter than on the nose but still holds pear, apple and orange. Very quaffable brew. Killer stuff.
