3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a good Summer Wine brew. Still aggressively hopped but not as harsh as some. Falls down a little on the classic combination of dry beer and dryer NZ hops. But still a good drink.

Keg @ CPK. Deep amber orange color with a tight white head. The nose is peaches, light sweet grape and floral hops. The taste is mellow sea grass, yeasty peach and jammy fruits. The body’s light, nimble, with active carbonation. Overall, impressive, flavorful, and easy to drink.

Another sw beer I really wanted to like but again it just didn’t do it for me. Aroma is all tropical fruit but it’s too bitter for the abv the hop flavour is muddled.
