yngwie (12722) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2013
On tap at the taproom. Lightly hazy, golden to orange in color and with a small, off-white head. Lots of citrus on the nose. Must be the kumquats I guess. Some lemon peel. It’s lightly tart on the palate, dry, with a nice carbonation. The flavor has lots of the citrus thing, some malt notes, and a good lemony note. Long finish. Definitely a fruit worth trying out. 130811

brokensail (9948) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Hazy orange color with minimal head due to the cask pour. Starts out with a nice vanilla aroma. Tons of kumquat and a very citrusy aroma overall. A decent amount of wood with just a mild rye and vinegar note. A touch of grass along with the wood really the only funk. Restrained acetic qualities and a nice tartness overall. Plenty of kumquat flavor makes this really enjoyable.

Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London - many thanks to Kenneth. Pours hazy amber with a frothy, off-white head. The aroma is lightly funky, some tangy lemon, some berries. Light to medium sweet flavor, lots of fruity tones, peach, kumquat, lemon, balanced tang. Light to medium bodied with fine to average, massaging carbonation. Nice tang on the finish, further citric fruit notes, lemon, kumquat, some mandarin orange, grapefruit and peach. Very drinkable. Solid stuff.

On cask at the Reserve Society Event. Pours with a hazy orange to golden hued body with a small, foamy head. Aromas are of Christmas Fruit Cake, citrus, candied fruits, earthy, sour, funky, a touch of oak and zesty. Flavors are very sour with some additional citric notes, lactic, zesty with some kumquat oil character. Really interesting and fun. Bright. Mild carbonation and zesty over the long and sour duration.
