Intro: A 16.9 fl oz (500ml) bottle with a Julian bottled on date of 02516, meaning it was bottled on 25th January 2016. Poured into a Cantillon ballon glass.
Appearance: It poured a hazy straw golden yellow colour with a close to two finger white head that dissipates slowly and eventually settles to an extremely thin cap and leaves sparse lacing.
Aroma: Strong tropical fruit aromas with passion fruit, unripe mango and apricot followed by a touch of citrusy tangy lemon and mandarin plus funky goodness.
Taste: Lightly sour followed by lots of tropical and citrus fruitiness. Apricot, mango, peach, passion fruit, tangy mandarin, lemon and a restrained but nice barnyard funkiness on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, light to medium bodied with high prickly carbonation.
Overall: A very well made dry hopped sour ale. Lots of tropical and citrus fruitiness in both the aroma and taste with a restrained sourness and funkiness. Would love to drink this again.
