Robustly full bodied with a glistening chestnut tint, the ale’s complex passion fruit and lychee tartness leaps forward closely followed by a perfectly charming balance of fruit and malt on the finish.

imdownthepub (15652) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Cask conditioned at The White Horse, Banbury, Oxon. Burnished gold with white head. There is a light, fusty note initially to this but this dispels and a kiwi fruit, lychee flavour emerges. Some tart notes, a trifle jarring at times. Apricot sweetness in the close. It’s okay.

ianwelby (1593) - SCOTLAND - MAY 5, 2016
Clear amber beer, white head, light citrus smell. Flavour is quite grapefruity, a bit of sweet lemon in there too. It’s got a lingering citrus aftertaste too. Really nice.
