Small white head. Hazy, yellow body with strong carbonation. Sugary herbal aroma with fruity caramelly notes. Dry raisiny perfumy taste with citric herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Dry spicy green tea aftertaste with metallic notes. Not bad, but a bit odd, and the metal detracts.

Pours the color of fresh queezed pear juice. Huge white head. Smells like sweet green tea and tastes the same. Great! Hint of kick very late in the finish. Deliciously refreahing. shrubber85 (11706) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Bottle. Lemon, toffee malt, and orange peel aroma. Murky yellow-brown with small head. Bitter sweet lemon peel and light malt flavor. Light body. Okay but not much to it. jookos (7155) - FINLAND - AUG 5, 2015

Orange amber, dirty hazy. Malty, slight amber bready straws on nose. Some citrus. Med bodied, malty. Strokes me as an old/offy bottle. Doesnt taste like much. Sort of okish, no apparent faults. Just boring. Some pine in finish.
quite unique aromas of plum compote, plum wine, a hint of wild strawberries and minty herbs with a woody undercurrent; all this with a stable retronasal revival, reviving what otherwise would be quite a fizzy, foamy, sourish, thin beer lacking smoothness, mouthfeel, (at least a hint of a) malt base. Or maybe this needs to be drunk quite cold, like: ice cold. Hm. Nevertheless a unique, light summer ale. Theydon_Bois (21423) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2015
