Bottle at the Half and Half, Croydon. It pours golden yellow with moderate carbonation and a decent white head. The nose is cheese, farmyard, hay, grass and yeast. The taste is hay, grass, honey, lemon sherbet, lime and kiwi with a dry finish. The mouth-feel is foamy like cream soda and the alcohol is pretty well hidden. Above average tripel.
