3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Bruce’s, thanks to Leighton. It pours murky golden-amber with a small white head. The nose is wood, vanilla, toasted coconut, floral, lactic and orange. The taste is crisp, melon, lactic, wood, spice, mild acidity, floral Granny Smith apple and lemon with a dry, tart finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Quite delicate and well-balanced actually. Tasty.

Bottle cheers to Leighton. I really didn’t get this beer, just wasn’t for me. Very musky and grassy with floral notes behind it all - obviously rose. I am not one for the smell of roses let alone the taste so probably not the most appreciative of this beer. Not bad just didn’t grab me

Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London. Thanks to Jay for trading me this one. Hazy gold with a creamy white head. Mild tangy clementines in the nose, touches of flowers. Decent funk in the flavor, light sweetness, hints of white bread, some oranges. Light bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Dry finish with light sweetness, modest bitterness, some white grapes, lemons, oranges, slight herbs. Quite delicate. Very drinkable.

375ml bottle (bottled 5/12) in a tulip. Pours pink/amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of flowers, some light tart notes, light malts, hibiscus, and a little spice. Flavor the same with a nice blend of flowers and a tart ale. Average texture. I wish it was more sour, but still really good.
