Intro: A 16 fl. oz. can with no canned on or best before date. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy dark-ish golden orange colour with a one finger white head that dissipated quickly and left only some lacing.
Aroma: Mango, peach candy, pineapple, mandarin, citrus rind and pith.
Taste: Sweet and lightly bitter. Pineapple, mandarin, orange rind and pith plus some alcohol lingering in the background, which was surprising.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and light booze.
Overall: Quite nice, although it would have been even better if the light booziness could have been hidden behind the fruit or something.
