A bright, golden summer ale brewed with a blend of Belgian pale malt, Cascade and Bobek hops with a late infusion of fresh elderflowers and lemon zest. Fruity, aromatic and deliciously refreshing.

Bottle. Citrus, lemon, flowers... elderflowers!, some white grapes - those Bros really know how to compose a compelling scent in beer. Smells like a summer meadow in the Polish highlands. Light, dry, crisp, floral taste with a pronounced, grapefruity bitterness. As with many Williams Bros beers, I have that feeling that tastewise it could’ve been made even better but it’s already very good as it is.

Un’abbondanza leggiadra e non invadente di gusti e aromi, che accarezza il palato come una brezza primaverile. Ampie note floreali, pungenti sentori citrici e agrumati si intrecciano incontrandosi in un piacevole finale amaro che abbraccia la lingua. Io l’ho trovata molto fine e davvero squisita. Può sembrare eccessivamente leggera, ma in una birra come questa è un pregio.

Bottled. Hazy golden, coarse head. Bread, glue and citrus up front. Dryish with light body and clean mouthfeel. Soapy with some pear, white pepper and paper. Mid bitter finish.

Thanks to Seanyfo. The beer starts very nice floral, fresh, highly drinkable. The elderflowers fit in ideal. The aroma hops create together with the flowers an ideal and fresh summer taste, the beer is dry, nicely bitter. great! --> 12/12/11/12

Bottle bb 03/15. Pours a clear gold colour. Aroma is a bit pissy with some lemon and a light maltiness. Light body, a bit thin. Big carbonation. Light and crisp with lemon being the main hoppy flavour. A bit boring really. Mild bitterness. Fine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. A lighlty hazy golden beer topped by a dense, white head. Weak flowerey aroma with citrus notes. The flavor too is quite flowery, with some citrus and a malty hint. Medium body, dry on the palate. Some bitterness chimes in towards the else quite flowery finish. A rather boring one, and perhaps a bit too much elderflower focused beer, but it slakes the thirst and goes down easily. 121130
