330ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Thick looking in the glass but very very murky and cloudy. Thin dribble of a head with an aroma that is a cross between earthiness and fruitiness. Quite lively in the mouth with a dry aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught @ Beer Temple.
Pours orange-yellow and very hazy. Little foam.
Nose is modest berry fruits, but this is silence before the storm.
This baby explodes in your mouth with light yeast, STRONG hard dry hops and hints of berries. Modest ABV. Only gripe is palate is a bit flat and left for dead after drinking, but with such hops that is to be expected.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 10C on a hot night. Hazy verging on soupy gold with a loose white head that fades to a coat. Aroma of sharp grapefruit mingled with pepper and juniper. An odd orange/ berry/ iodine note that’s not that prominent is presumably the seabuckthorn.Taste has oranges, grapefruit, berries, juniper, pepper. Bitter finish with citrus and lingering spices. Interesting, invigorating.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Cloudy orange with white head. Aroma has lots of dusty orange, slightly sharp like blood orange. Taste of sharp orange, not much else going on actually, it’s pretty much fizzy orange juice which is good. Crisp and well measured bitterness. I could drink this all day, very refreshing

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Murky orange with a nice foamy head. Aromas of flowery hops, fruits, buckthorn (?) and something i can’t get a hold of, birch or something. Hoppy bitter taste, medium carbonation. Even more bitter in the end.
Pretty cool, something different. Still lacks the final touch though.
