12/20 it's actually pretty drinkable. Was expecting a drain pour but it's quite refreshing, very much a session beer but the elderberry gives it something slightly different ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

radassace (214) - SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2017
500ml bottle. Pours a light amber with a one finger lasting white fluffy head. Nose is pale malts, a touch sweet honey, lemon, grapefruit zest and a little tropical. Very aromatic and flowery due to the elderflower. Nicely carbonated and light, taste is similar to nose, touch of hop bitterness but not too much, Very nice again. Perfect for sitting out back in the sun. Very refreshing.

Belle blonde dore translucide surmonte dune belle mousse bien blanche sur quelques millimtres. Passons au principal, les armes. Dentre on est assailli positivement par des armes de houblons extrmement floraux et fruits (Cascade, First Gold et Amarillo sur mon exemplaire dont la date de premption est fixe au 11/2017...).Ca sent lillet, le pissenlit, la violette, les agrumes (pamplemousse en tte, citron, mandarine, zests divers et varis), mais aussi le malt bien torrfi avec de dlicates saveurs de caramel et de miel. Un ct pic agrable, de petites notes de chocolat au lait, de galette bretonne, de crpes... On dirait une IPA trs civilise, cest simple, mais dlicat et trs quilibr ! La carbonatation est moyenne, la texture un tout petit peu sche et farineuse, et lamertume tapisse bien le fond de la langue en souplesse. Les saveurs malts sont lgres, lalcool est bien intgr et perceptible malgr un ridicule 4.3% qui nest en rien une faiblesse. On retrouve un petit ct acidul propre aux agrumes et des notes de prune et de mirabelle. Le final est vgtal, sur lherbe frache, le foin, toujours avec une amertume longue qui persiste encore et encore, en dlicatesse. Une fois de plus, cest simple, mais cest bien matris, quilibr, rafraichissant, agrable. Une bire qui se dguste bien frache et qui voque immanquablement le printemps, les journes qui rallongent, les arbres qui verdissent, les fleurs qui sortent de terre... Rajoutez a une trs belle tiquette ( ce propos Birds & Bees est lquivalent anglo-saxon des cigognes ou des choux & roses pour les bbs) et vous tenez l une trs bonne bire blonde. Je recommande chaudement ! Bouteille 50cl, cadeau de naissance (pour lanecdote !)... Merci Jeff !
