Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 15th June 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy dark copper orange colour with a big three finger off white head that had good retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Sour and very fruit forward with lemon, orange, orange rind, grapefruit, passionfruit, lychee, peach and a touch of pepper spice.
Taste: Fruity, sour and tart throughout. A good mix of citrus and tropical with orange, lemon, mango, pineapple, lychee, peach and apricot. There’s a light citrus rind bitterness mixed in there with caramel and a spice pepper finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation and dry on the finish.
Overall: Enjoyable and refreshingly easy to drink despite it being 7.5% abv.
