3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Backlog rating. 50cl bottle from trade thanks to McNeill. It pours a hazy straw color with a s large white head. Aroma is hoppy and lightly yeasty with notes of grapefruit, kiwi fruit, citrus peel, pine cones and peppery spices. Some grains and hay. Taste is medium dry and lightly bitter and grassy, with more citrusy hops, notes of ripe apricots, esters, black pepper, bread dough, grapefruit. Finishes lightly estery and quite dry. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, very tasty, but the original homebrew recipe had more yeast prominence

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from BenH. Thanks. Way way over carbonated. Hazy amber colour lasting thick beige head. Almost a Belgian blond estery yeast aroma and flavour. Settles down into a Belgian blond with spicy hops on the finish. Didn’t see it was a Belgian Ale. Explains the huge carbonation. Pretty dry pale Belgian ale. I liked it. Hops on the finish are excellent, touch of grapefruit without being overly dominant. I liked it. My kinda beer.
