3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 ounce bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with a half inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both OK. Aroma is sweet malt, lemon peel, grapes and some grassy and floral hops. It’s a nice aroma, but it’s also a bit weak. Luckily the taste is stronger than the aroma. The beer tastes like lemon and orange peel, honey, peppery spice, white grapes and a bit of sour apples. There’s also a slight bitter/sour finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit creamy and is well carbonated. Drinkability is alright, I thought it wasn’t hard to drink at all. I thought this was a decent enough brew, definitely worth trying.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
What can I say, this is an amazing beer! Poured from 330ml bottle a deep golden blonde ale with plenty of sediment when holding up to a light. A small white head that disappears quickly. Aroma of lemon zest, vanilla and banana. Flavor is very smoothe and full bodied at first than expresses a semi-sour finish. Palate is left with much vanilla and citrus. One of the best beers I have tried so far!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(11.2 oz bottle) Hazy mango color with hefty white head. Thin lacing. Well carbonated. Taste is malty-orange sweet. Considerable alcohol (9.8 ABV) is well hidden. An off-beat option I would recommend to explore.
