3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Definite skunk aroma and flavour. Interesting drop, a little undecided, quite light in appearance but medium bodied. Easy to knock back. Can’t help but think it reminds me of skunk!

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Lively carbonation with a nice persistant white head as a result. Pale clear yellowish poor. Citrus, honey and slight pine notes at first but over all a weak hopiness that does not seem to add bitterness or any real aroma and watery lemonade undertone. A weak beer over all.
Will have to try again in summer but over all little bit disappointed in this one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bouteilles de 330 ml. Arômes invitants de houblon très fruité (fruits tropicaux, melons). Robe blonde pâle, très légèrement trouble, effervescence assez active et peu de mousse. En bouche, la bière se montre plutôt mince, avec une belle présence de blé menant à une finale peu amère et légèrement acide. Le houblon montre un sublime caractère fruité et aromatique. Très facile à boire et original.

Bottle. Very nice citrus aromas. Pouts golden in colour. A touch of malt sweetness, which is enhanced by the lingering hop flavours on the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Smells of pine, citrus, sweet. Tastes of a medium sweetness, light tart, medium-light bitter. Light bodied, light carbonation, oily texture. Finishes piny and mildly bitter, but also slightly cloying. Refreshing, pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Consistently voted as one of Australia?s best beers, and it has some strong claims. Pours a cloudy pale amber with good carbonation and a fluffy white head. There are pine and floral notes on the nose, with a big hoppy taste like an American pale ale. Can detect flavours including cut grass, passionfruit, citrus and a bit of balancing sweetness. Lingers on the palate with a dry but not bitter finish. A very good lighter style ale.

Pours and amber colour. Aroma is fruity with some caramel. Taste is pretty similar. Interesting, pretty decent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 22, 2012 Now, here is a beer to get you through summer. There’s some citrus and honey on the nose, and a fair bit of malt in the taste, with a slight hint of bitterness at the end It’s got a lovely passionfruit overtone and it’s very, very clean. If beer was found in nature, this one would be a fast flowing mountain stream. The relatively high carbonation also suits for summer drinking. 330ml is definitely not enough. Can I get another, barkeep?

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - Slightly cloudy yellow rather than gold, some pineapple and apricot notes and then a bit of sourness to taste. Quite thin. Pretty underwhelming stuff if I’m being honest. I suppose 40 degree heat might make a difference, but then don’t we say that about bad Pacific Island beers? Ho-hum at best.
