Bottle thanks to Fergois at the 2016 Cotteridge Convention. It pours cloudy gold with a thick white head. The aroma is fresh, clean, floral, cereal, cracker, light ginger and pepper. The taste is crisp, apple, sweet pear, straw, florals, cereal, slightly chewy, cracker and peppery ginger with a dry finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Nice floral notes, but there is a bit too much sweet ester contribution.

Draught. Pours a dark golden color with a moderate white head on there. Very floral and slightly sweet nose, and just a hint of funk. Slightly sour and funky, but easy to drink. Nice.
