Intro: A 330ml bottle, bottled in March 2016 and poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance: It poured a hazy golden orange colour with a puffy two finger white head that had great retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Tropical fruits of mango and pineapple with flowery rose, grass and tea.
Taste: Iced tea, grassy, herbal and flowery rose. Lightly bitter.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was nice and easy to drink as its very tea like. Perhaps a bit too herbal and flowery for me though.
