LCBF. Cloudy orange with a small head. Smells very fruity - lots of orange in particular, with some banana and mango. Medium body, high carbonation. Taste - slight lemon and peach. Nothing offensive about this and a nice smell, but not enough going on in the taste to score highly.

Draught at Craft Beer, Clerkenwell. Cloudy orange/golden beer with a nice offwhite head. Fruity aroma, pine apples, peach, fruit cocktail, hay, caramel, pear, mango, citrus, some floral notes. Hoppy bitter flavor, pine needles, grapes, citrus, hay, peach, raisins, woody notes. Hoppy fruity finish. Good beer but I was hoping for even more with this hop-combination.

Bottle from the brewery drunk at home. Hazy orange amber gold with lasting off white head. I seem to have drunk most of this and made no notes. Yes the tropical fruit is decent some biting acidity on the finish. It’s pleasant without being top notch. Full of flavour on the finish though.
