Bottle at Bruces, from TGG Bend, 31/07/13. Hazed golden amber with a thin off white head. Nose is vinous, tarte apricots, bitter orange, light funk, subtle burnt citric fruit notes. Taste comprises tarte orange, soured apricots, lemon rind, light boozey tones, funky notes, grassy farmy light earthy notes. Medium bodied with a little oomph, fine carbonation, dry finish, The alchohol is very well integrated or a double digit affair - great work!

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Colin Theydon for this one. Pretty hazy gold - amber beer. Little pale cream coloured head. Softish palate, semi dry. Light carbonation. Light seltzer minerals. Nice mango syrup, as if poured from a can of tinned mango. A little fresh orange. Very light sourness and white wine. Whisper of vanilla. Light dry finish. An approachable sour which drinks well below it’s abv.

Amber blond with fizzy white head. Aroma is muted with a bit of funk. Flavor is sweet and a bit tart, really clean and refreshing. Body is thicker than expected. Good beer overall.
