Intro: A 375ml bottle bottled in May 2015 poured into a Cantillon ballon glass.
Appearance: It poured a hazy golden colour with a big three finger white head and pretty good retention that leaves a nice ring of lacing.
Aroma: Sour, tart and very fruity with citrus grapefruit, lemon rind, orange followed by tropical mango, passion fruit and peach. There’s a hint of funk.
Taste: Like the aroma, its sour and tart. Orange and grapefruit dominate with a hint of lemon, mango and funk in the background.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: Thoroughly enjoyable fruity and juicy sourness makes it very easy to drink.
