Gravity at Birmingham Beer Festival 2012. Purple grape flavour, sticky and fleshy. It’s a bit weird, but I do like it. Fruity floral aroma too. Chris is on the bar, and he’s always good value.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, Rehills, Ncl. An unusual beer, in that the aroma is bittersweet, but has buttery notes and even some cheese in there, which did put me in mind of yeastiness. As advertised, the kiwi fruit is certainly there and there’s a nice fruity explosion in the finish, with some zestiness too. Maybe needs a touch of refinement, but good nonetheless

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask, gravity at Dudley Winter Ales Festival Sat 26th November 2011 with Bob Pours gold a little hazy with a white head. I think on day one this may have been a cracker but day three and it has started to wilt a little, despite this it is still one of the better beers that I’ve had here today. Little soapy hops in mouth with the fruitiness shows but its not as crisp as I guess it could and would have been, Likeable. A6 A3 T7 P3 Ov14 3.3
