3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle dated Sep 2015. Well-chilled. Hoppy, with strong, sweet and tart aromas of raspberries, cherries and strawberries. A little floral. Clear, golden amber appearance with a light frothy head. Very fruity to taste with only a mild bitterness. Lacks complexity. Medium body with a silky smooth texture. Gentle carbonation and a slightly bitter, abrupt finish. Overall a pleasant Summer ale that goes down easily.

Smells of orange, lemon zest and spruce. Very fresh, with some citrus. Taste is lightly malty with some bitterness coming trough, looks pretty nice with average retention but large head, finish isn’t very exciting but it’s a nicely done and tasty beer. I really enjoyed drinking it.

shared @ DE-CH-F TriStateTasting. wine gum nose, with the characteristic taste of young spruce tips eaten directly from the tree: lemony, sour, fresh, with a bitter finish. A simple beer, but nicely done.

500 ml bottle, BB Jan 2015
Thanks to Seanyfo for this one! Pale orange in the glass, malty-neutral nose. The beer starts malty and bitter. Nicely smooth. Caramel, hints of citrus, but all a bit weak. A slightly sweet taste is in the foreground, bitterness comes closer to the end. Bloomy, flouwery hop-aroma join in as well. The aftertaste is long, a bit too sweet (for me), nicely bitter, floral hops and caramel malt.
--> all in all a very interesting brew! --> 11/12/10/10

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle thanks to Keith from Williams.
Appearance - somewhere between golden and amber.
Nose - very much malt dominated with just a touch of herby-citrus coming through to clean things up.
Taste - honey nut cornflakes with lemon.
Palate - medium bodied, creamy in texture and fairly refreshing finish.
Overall - another good ale from Williams if not one of their best.
