[backlog] 06-04-15 / 330ml bottle bought at South Melbourne Market. My first beer after 2015 spring fasting. Nice bitterness, tea leaves in the finish. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 3/5

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle into shaker. Distant aroma of sweet tea and bergamot. Cloudy orange/copper beer with creamy white head. Taste is subtly tea-like but the finish is much more assertive. It’s long, tannic and dry. Occasional sweetness balances it nicely. Drinking this on a sunny Sydney winter Sunday listening to Paul Kelly. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Robe blonde, reflets ambrés, mousse peu abondante. Nez marqué par le coté bergamotte, earl grey sur un fond de houblon et d’écorces d’orange. Bouche tout en fruit, en fraîcheur et en élégance, fine bulle et finale amère sur les agrumes. Belle bière parfaitement maîtrisée.

This is a great favourite of mine. The ipa hoppiness is beautifully in my view balanced by the tea flavour. A superb drink

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden beer with a thin white head on top. Aroma has loads of Earl Grey tea in there, a bit musty and dusty, light fruity yeast and cardboard. Flavor has the dry herbalness from the Earl Grey for sure, but lacks anything else. Gets a bit one-dimensional after a while though. Sweeter citrus in the backend. Light carbonation, dry bittersweet aftertaste. Okay beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle. Slightly cloudy, orangey golden colour with average, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Citrusy hoppy and floral-leafy aroma, well integrated Earl Grey bergamot notes support citrusy notes of lemon and orange, a touch of lavender and viola; maybe the leafy notes are too smothering in the end. Taste is bitter and slightly citrusy hoppy, leafy, slightly floral, hints of bergamot, a touch of lavender and viola, some orange, disguised caramel malty basis is more supportive than discretely shining through. A tightrope walk permanently at risk to crash into the soapy bath salt abyss.
