4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light amber with a finger of brilliant white foamy head. A bold and amazingly multilayerd aroma greets you, starting with a light lemon and lime note leading to soft honey and toffee malt. Followed by sticky fruit sweets, mango and just a hint of resin. The initial taste is slightly less impressive than the aroma but soon starts to reveal more and more tropical notes as it warms and opens up. Mango and orange lead the way and soon hand over to more artificial candied fruit and sweet citrus peel. The package is wrapped up with a creamy mouthfeel and a fruity moderate bitterness

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ok, I havenít rated for a while but as I met one of the brewers today at Bristol Food Connections (Mr Wiper), I feel compelled to dive back in. And what a beer to come back in on. First off, the nose is intense - Curling out of the purpose-made glass like a genie emerging from a lamp; lime juice to start with, a touch of salt, some sour candy. Then the sweetness starts to kick in - candied orange peel, orange and mango Robinsons fruit squash, all that good stuff. The pour is a pale, burnished copper with a slight haze and a creamy beige head. The flavour is stunning; sun-drenched and unctuous with lemon-lime notes, some grapefruit, and pine notes. This pine/spruce richness delivers long in the finish with juicy, rich moreishness. Of the single hop Mosaics Iíve had (Arbor, the mighty Kernel) this is the best. Keep up the good work guys; you rock.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big bubbles in a crystal clear sunset liquid. Not much head but the colour is fantastic, maybe itís the light but Iím taken! Top marks for that. Big peach, strawberry fruit bouquet on the nose - really delicious smelling, like a summery fruit punch! Again, couldnít really imagine better! Wow. A complex flavour which understates the above aspects slightly. Still peachy with a little hop acridity almost perfectly balanced by the earthy malt flavours. The fruity flavours apparent in the aroma are there but subtly. Rich.
