Intro: A 440ml can, canned on 12th November 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.

Taste: Lots of moderately sweet melon (melon ice cream) and mango with a moderate bitter citrus rind and peel finish.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Nice and easy to drink. Strong melon ice cream flavour sweetness was balanced with the moderately bitter finish.
