Intro: A 330ml bottle, batch 578, with a best before date of 4th July 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy dark orange-yellow colour with a nice two finger white head that had great retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: A very nice and intense mango yoghurt with touches of apricot and papaya on the side.
Taste: Strong bitterness at the beginning, followed by tropical mango, apricot and orange peel.
Mouthfeel: Dry, medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I completely loved the mango yoghurt aroma that it was giving off. However, when it came to the taste, I thought that the bitterness kind of wiped out a lot of the tropical fruit flavours that you’d expect from such an aroma. It is still tasty though and doesn’t feel at all like its close to 8% ABV.
