4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy tan, thin head. Passion fruit, starfruit, grapefruit, gooseberry, quite a bit of pale malt and a touch of alcohol. Soft body, mandarins at Christmas, grapefruit meringue, touch of citric acid...this is quite smooth for the style. You know it’s sugary but you don’t really think of it as a sugary beer.

Draught at the Holborn Whippet, London on 22 February 2014. Poured a hazy golden colour, with a dense white head and some lacing. Sweet aroma of honey, brown sugar and tropical fruit. Initial flavours were equally as sweet, with some medium-bitter grassy hop and a waxy note. Finish was chalky with some chewy malt and bitter hop resin.

330ml bottle from Beermoth. Pours hazy orange, intense yet crisp taste with subdued honey elements, floral hops, subtle corn, some citrus and a decent bitterness, although the alcohol gets a bit strong towards the end. Another delightful beard-stroking beer from Siren.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from utobeer. BB date 31/03/14. Pours a murky amber brown with a white head. Aroma has some pineapple, a little caramel but not overly sweet, there’s a little woodiness too and maybe light honey, but that could be down to the power of suggestion. Medium body, medium carbonation, sticky. Starts lightly funky, with overripe fruit and a light note of veg, with a little brown toast, earthy wood going on too, then booze, and a hit of pretty solid sweetness just before a bitter, slight tonicy/quinine/grapefruit, finish. I wasn’t getting much in the way of honey until later in the drinking, there was also a slight floral thing happening. Anyway, it’s tasty enough, a bit sweet for me.
