Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 5th August 2016 and poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance: It poured a murky red purple colour with a one finger lightly pink head that dissipates quickly but leaves some nice lacing.
Aroma: Guava, blueberry, raspberry, pineapple with hints of almond and orange.
Taste: It starts off pretty good with some blueberry, Ribena and cranberry before some light grapefruit bitterness and then just falling off to nothing pretty fast.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I wasn’t a fan of its appearance and while the aromas were good, the quick fall off in the taste was a bit disappointing. Perhaps my hopes were too high to start since I really enjoyed Magic #4:21 but since then some of these ‘experimental’ Magic brews haven’t quite matched #4:21’s must buy status in my opinion.
