Bottled, 330ml from Trafalgar Wines, Brighton, E.Sussex. Hazy gold orange with white head. There is quite a yeasty note initially, bread dough then with a slight spicy sourness, some lemon sherbert, some plain grainy malt. Not really sure about this one.

Bottle. Poured a medium rust brown with a white head. Smells bubbly, fizzy and filling. With a sweet taste. In combination I found candy and toffee notes. Good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A murky dark golden beer topped by a bit, off-white head leaving lacings. The aroma is quite fruity and citrusy. Citrus peel mostly, with some pale malts. A touch of booze in the far back. The flavor is a tad too sweet, with citrusy fruityness and some malts and saison yeast. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Short finish with pale malts, canned peaches and some yeast. Nothing impressive going on here. Could perhaps need even more time in the bottle. 140815

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Veramente un’ottima birra, interessante e complessa. Gusto dominato da unaa leggera acidità che si sposa con la speziatura di inclinazioni floreali, note fruttate, erbacee e una punta legnosa molto suggestiva che ricorda la campagna. Speciale!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Fyne Wines, Argyll. Hazy orange-copper colour with little off-white head. Aromas of fresh apricots (distinctive), woody musk and blood oranges. Flavours on the palate are initially very soft, creamy oats, but then a prickly sherbet-like fizz with spicy cardamom flavour takes hold, fading after about 20 seconds with no residual flavours or finish. Almost tastes like a Pale Ale - more nutty woodiness than hop character and very little acidity.
