Intro: A 500ml can, canned on 9th May 2022, poured into a winebar glass.
Appearance: A hazy pale orange colour with a one finger white head that had good retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Grassy and melon notes lead, followed by a wave of citrus, mostly grapefruit zest and rind, and maybe notes of grapes.
Taste: Juicy, lightly bitter, melon forward, grapefruit zest, orange and grass.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Good thirst quenching and easy to drink. Glad we’re getting them fresh in Hong Kong. Looking forward to trying more from them.
