jmgreenuk (9542) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 29, 2015
Tap at Mikkeller Bangkok. Poured a hazy orange straw colour with a round bubbly white head. The aroma is citrus yeast. The flavour is moderate sour with a zesty acid citrus, light mineral, light spice light vinous palate. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Lots of yeast and fruit. Refreshing but not great. I don’t think the Opus One barrels were a big influence.
