Intro: A 440ml can, canned on 2nd October 2020. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A hazy straw golden colour with a two finger white head that had decent retention, while leaving some spotty lacing.
Aroma: Sweet, tart, candy, lemon cake, lemon, vanilla.
Taste: Sour, tart, sweet, lemon sour candies, sharp, acidic, lemon, vanilla.
Mouthfeel: Sharp sour acidic, light bodied, with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I loved the aroma as it was like dessert, and the taste was fine, but the mouthfeel didn’t quite match up. The sharp sour acidity was too much and reduced what could have been a nice easy drinking sour, to something that could only be sipped.
