Cybion (183) - Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2017
Bottle, 330 ml. Pours mildly hazy yellow/straw No Visible carb, head dissipates quickly. Looks like pineapple juice. Nose is sweet and fruity/juicy, with orange, lemon, light pineapple, touch of coriander, lots of spice spice, almond/marzipan. Taste is spicy and sweet, starting out with citrus, orange, blood orange perhaps, grapefruit, spice (unsure which), leading on to some spicy bread in the middle with the long, dry finish comprising mild coriander, clove, and Belgian yeast. Traces of herbal hops and bitterness throughout. Body is light-medium, texture is somewhat thin but not too watery, carbonation is mild but noticeable. Interesting stuff, not quite what I expected from a wit.

Maris (1487) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2016
From a 330ml bottle on 31/12/2016. Pours a milky straw colour with little head. Has a quite odd, slightly off, spicy aroma. Taste wise, its also unusual, with some sharp orange, coriander and nutmeg. Bugger all bitterness is present, which is not entirely surprising. Light bodies with moderate to average carbonation. Just didnt work for me on any level.

GeorgePratt (69) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2017 Bottle from Harvey Nichols Manchester. Aroma of flora, ginger, coriander, citrus. Presentable cloudy straw colour with disappointing white head. Sweet and smooth intriguing ginger taste with dry, light finish and a bitter linger. This is probably one of my favorite beers at the moment.
