750mL thanks to t0rin0. Clear tea amber pour, wispy foam. Nose is black peppercorn, sharp steak au poivre, bizarre Faro sweet tea, spicy potpourri orange, and strange funk. Taste is sweet southern iced tea up front, sugary. Palate is not bright, more of a musty, sticky past its prime. Overall, I cannot say this is good in any way.

Corked 0.75l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. A lovely warm amber orange colored thing this with a small islandy and lacing off-white head. It has a fruity bretty aroma with peaches, red berries and a little wood hint. Yeah, Smells really nice! Oh, it’s sweeter than I thought. Soft and really thin on the mouthfeel and also soft prickling on the carbonation. Red Berry sweet with thin raspberry lemonade. Surprisingly sweet, and not very interesting or even good to be honest. Smells quite nice but I’m a bit disappointed in this hybrid. 23.10.2013 ThirstyBird (3000) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Sampled @ RBBSG II. Courtesy of BelgBeerGeek. Pours a bright clear copper color with a light tan ring for carbonation. The smell is tart fruit while the taste is a nice balance between sweet and sour with cherry, a little saccharine then a dry ending. Bright carbonation and light+ body.
