Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 18th July 2015 and poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
Appearance: The beer poured a hazy straw golden colour with a very small white head that dissipates quickly.
Aroma: Starts with sour lime and raspberries with hints of grapefruit and a strong peach finish.
Taste: Strong sour notes, mainly of tart lime and lemon but also some grapefruit. Followed by tropical fruit flavours of mango and peaches.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied, strong carbonation, dry, crisp.
Overall: This exceeded my expectations by far and I wish I could buy this again. But as a limited brew and seemingly out of stock in Hong Kong, I fear I may not find this again.
