Intro: A one pint can with a Julian canned on date of 32517 (I think, as it was a bit blurred), meaning that it was canned on 21st November 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy pinkish orange colour with a big two finger white head that dissipated quite quickly while leaving only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Wheaty, orange, mixed berries with a hint of lemon.
Taste: Tart orange and lemon, wheat, with hints of mixed berries and rhubarb.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: This had nice tartness but just a bit too grainy for me.
