Intro: A 500ml can, lot #268, with a best before date of 30th March 2019. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy golden orange colour, with a two finger white head that had pretty good retention while leaving some nice lacing.
Aroma: Citrusy orange, orange rind, grapefruit zest, grass with a hint of pineapple and mango.
Taste: Lightly sweet and bitter, dank, orange zest, citrus rind, mango, pineapple and a hint of peach and grass.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Nice and tasty with some good juiciness. I liked it better than Ensemble Two which I thought was too sweet, but this one had a better balance of sweet and bitter.

Intro: A 500ml can, lot #267, with a best before date of 30th March 2019. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A cloudy darkish orange colour with a thin half finger white head that dissipated quickly and left only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Sweet citrus, pineapple, grapefruit, citrus zest and rind, pine, grass with a hint of overripe mango and papaya.
Taste: Sweet fruit juice, pineapple, mandarin, orange juice, lightly bitter citrus rind, with hints of papaya and a tinge of alcohol.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: It has some nice juiciness, but probably just on the edge of being too sweet for me as it lacks the bitterness to balance.
