Brewer Description: (from bottle) Born and raised in Byron Bay, Stone & Wood take a fresh approach to brewing handcrafted beer in the Northern Rivers of NSW, one of the greatest places on earth.

Intro: This 330ml bottle was dated best before 7 October 2015 and was poured into a Hoegaarden pint glass.
Appearance: The beer poured a hazy pale yellow with a one finger big bubble head that disappears fairly quickly.
Aroma: Excellent aromas! Very tropical fruit forward especially mango, pineapple, orange, peach and apricot.
Taste: Like the nose, the taste is of tropical fruits. Mainly mango and peach with a slight bitter lemon finish.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied, crisp, medium carbonation, refreshing.
Overall: This was a good beer, very easy to drink and great for a hot summers day. The one thing stopping me from giving it a must buy 5, is that I would have preferred a higher ABV maybe up to around 6 or 7%.
