jamesie1857 (1944) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2015
330ml bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield - Hazy orange body, not much in the way of a head. Nose is some kind of citrus, I also got some salt and pepper crisps as well. Taste did nothing for me, but again the citrus was there in abundance. Not sure what they were trying to pull off, but it didn’t work.

nihtila (2833) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2015
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours clear golden, some yeast on the bottom. Nose is yeast, spices, apricot, fruits. Funky. Not the most common aroma. Not the taste either. Herbs, funky yeasty notes, passionfruit, apricot, wheaty malts. Occasionally I like these hybrids.
