Bottle at the brewery. Hazy orange beer, tidy white head. Smooth palate- but with a crispy edge. Semi dry. Subtle herb, sweet orange and then grapefruit bitterness. The Riwaka was noticeable here but not the Nelson. Dry finish, a little pithy. Need to spend some more time on this one - it’s more complex than I have described. Original rating 3.7

30th August 2011
A little bit of cream in the malt. Nice hops! Mild tangerine and subtle mango. Mild minerals and a little aniseed. Finishes with fresh orange and a dash of grapefruit and a little peach. Just a mildy bitter aftertaste but it has real legs and lingers on and on.

From tank@The Kernel, London. Hazy orangeish golden colour, small beige head. Aroma is fruits, mild yeast, some earth and mild sweet maltyness. Flavour is grassy, wooden, fruity and earthy with some slight yeasty and sweet malty notes. Pleasantly balanced.
