Intro: A 330ml can, with a best before date of 31st August 2019. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A cloudy darkish orange colour with two finger white head that had pretty good retention and left lots of nice sticky lacing.
Aroma: Bubblegum, banana, clove, citrusy mandarin creamsicle, lemon peel and grass.
Taste: Light sour and tart, grapefruit, sweetish floral, clove, banana, with hints of peach and lemon peel. Light bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Easy to drink, but the floral and citrus flavours almost overpower the clove and banana that I so enjoy in my Weizenbocks.
