Acid303 (406) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - NOV 3, 2013
33cl bottle, served in Shaker. Pours hazy orange with small/medium lating white froth. The aroma is orange peel, citrus and hints of caramel and pine. Smells so good. Similar taste, one just gets some yeasty notes added to the rest. Dry palate, spicy touch. Medium body, good carbonation. Good job, very balanced.

Garrold (1337) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle from The Dram Shop, Sheffield. Hazy orange. Minimal head. Big, ripe, juicy aroma. Blackberries, strawberries, some citrus. Some light breadiness. Sweet, initial taste, followed by a grapefruit dryness. Wouldn’t mind a little more fizz, but pretty enjoyable. Well, it lasted 4 minutes?
