3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very interesting beer from a brewery that seems to be interested in session beers packed with flavour and balance. This falls squarely into that category whilst delving into the risky arena of fruit and spice. All done nicely here - delicate tropical garden flavour from the juniper berries and new world hops.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not sure if 2013 or 14, assume 13. Pours a clear amber with a fluffy off-white head and moderate carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pine, flowers, cut grass and some apple. Taste is lightly bitter at the front with citrus in the mid-palate. Fruity finish with some spice in the aftertaste. Not bad at all.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, from Slowbeer, Melbourne, Victoria. Cloudy deep golden, small head. Interesting aroma with roses, grapefruit and brett. Dry with light body and crisp, clean mouthfeel. Kumquat and summer flowers. Mid bitter finish. Well drinkable with interesting flavours. Somewhat flat malt character, if I’m to complain about something.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber with a huge white head. Fresh, lively floral and herbal aroma (don’t think I’d have picked juniper if it weren’t on the label) with honeydew melon and a little peach. Light-bodied, getting on to watery. A little caramel sweetness, lots of botanical notes, dry with pepper and juniper at the end. Refreshing. Would hit the spot well on a humid Byron evening.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a hazy orange with huge fluffy head that slowly disappears, lots of carbonation! Aroma of grassy floral hops with some citrus maybe. Taste is grassy and floral with bit of a bitter finish. Nice for a mid strength! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First pour was a 20cm glass full of off-white foamy head that slowly changed to a clear golden coloured liquid. The head settled down to a thin bubbly one that laced poorly. Low carbonation. Aroma of floral sweet hops, an overall pleasant smell. Taste was smooth and dominated by hops which was combination of bitter, earthy and sweet. Light thin body. Short smooth, sweetish finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark amber with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows some nutty and toasty malt along with light spicy herbal notes from the juniper. A little faint.
Similar spicy characters show as flavours along with nutty notes. Extremely quaffable. Gets a bit sweet later though.
