3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Drinksmonger, Bruntsfield. Pours hazy. Burnt orange in colour. Aroma is a little muted. Bit of straw. Jammy. Orange musk. Taste has caramel and bread notes but is quickly overtaken by a drying bitterness that comes on strong. Good length of finish with juicy citrus that comes out dry. Creamy carbonation. Medium mouthfeel. Quite sticky. Alcohol is present but works. Good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml. bottle drank @ Billie’s Bier Kafétaria. Bottled on 03/15. Batch 0171. Pours very hazy orange, big white head. Nose is very murky orange peel, very dry, dry fruits bitter with lots of yeast. Taste is harsh bitter with no balance & plenty of yeast, raw bitterness almost reminiscent of quinine tonic, very bitter dry aspirin, dried peel & big yeast. Just harsh & overly yeasty really. Dough. Body is overly bitter & dry + overly yeast. Heavy yeast, gives it yoghurt-like yeast. Not sure if age plays a big role or it just wasn’t my thing. It still had a long way away from the BBF date.
