Hazy mid amber with wild bretty gooseberry nose. More banana yeast esters as it warms. Medium body, sweet, fresh nz hops, rich yeast esters, barrel character. Spot on.
Cask @ Euston Tap. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are rich fruits, little caramel, malt, hops, berries and has a nice sweet finish. johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle from Grape n Grind. Lemonadey, fresh nose with gentle spruce and caramelised orange zest. Pours a slightly hazy orangey amber with a medium beige head. The flavour is interesting - thickly complex with forest floor, candy and dirty sock notes freshened by lots or orange citrus and finishing with some lemon curd biscuit and the tiniest hint of maraschino cherry. Very nice, but not a lot of the nelson sauvin hop coming through. Scopey (14699) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2013
Cask at Euston Tap. It pours clear deep amber with a medium beige head. The nose is toasty, earth, spice, metal and light fruitiness. The taste is crisp, fruity, gooseberry, white grape, toast, wood, spice, good deal of bitterness, metallic twang, white wine and candy with a touch of alcohol towards the finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Nice fruitiness and great balance. Rather nice.

Bottle from the brewery. Deep amber in colour, with a slight off-white head and trace of carbonation. Spicy malt aroma with some caramel, but also sharp lime and floral hops. Full bodied, with a yeasty, continental edge, marmalade and stone fruits, some candy sugar sweetness and a lingering, dryish finish. A lot going on and enjoyable.

Cask at Euston tap. Copper colour thin off white head. Aroma is saison tangerine, some phenols. First sip is quite tart. Some light tart cherry, wine tanin, slight acid in the finish. Dry finish. Interesting beer. Beermack (725) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2013
Keg at Barley Mow, Bristol. Pours a hazy amber gold. Funky sweaty citrus and tropical fruit, big and pungent (slightly cheesy) fruity yeast getting in there too. Dank tropical fruit and pungent yeast notes upon tasting, more peach and some definite NZ white wine fruity dryness. Lingering peaches and funky mango, very vinous and dry. Challenging but interesting gear, very pungent and fairly messy flavours at work, enjoyable though. madmitch76 (24785) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2013

Euston Tap. Cask. Clear amber beer with a small white head. Palate is semi dry with nice carbonation. Minerals. Peachy grapey fruits over light sweetish malt. Whisper of sweet esters. Light crisp finish with a minty cool aftertaste. Interesting!
