Intro: A 330ml can with a best before date of 20th December 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A nice clear ruby red colour with a purplish hue and a one finger pink head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Berry fruit, vanilla, ice cream and yoghurt.
Taste: It was like watered down mixed berry juice with hints of vanilla, lactose and yoghurt. The taste disappears to nothing quite fast.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Tastes too watered down for me to enjoy it fully and on top of that, the taste disappears really fast from your mouth and just leaves you with nothingness.

Intro: A 330ml can with a best before date of xx October 2017 (xx was rubbed off). Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy straw yellow colour with a one finger white head that dissipated to nothing almost immediately and no lacing.
Aroma: Mango, orange, mandarin with a dash of lemon, lightly tart, but not getting much ginger.
Taste: Sour unripe mango, ginger ale, orange, lemon and wheatiness on the back end.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: Was not great with my first sip, but I must say that it grew on me and got somewhat better. I think it was the ginger that threw me off at first.

Taste: Generally quite light and short, but there’s mango and peach followed by bitter grapefruit rind and mandarin rind.

Overall: Aroma and taste were nice but was a bit disappointed that the taste was quite light and abrupt, especially when compared to top Stigbergets IPAs like GBG and Amazing Haze.

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 14th September 2017. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A nice hazy golden orange colour with a just under two finger fluffy white head that pretty good retention and lots of nice sticky lacing.
Aroma: Starts tropical with apricot, peach, mango followed by some citrusy grapefruit and mandarin with hints of pine, straw and grass. It’s nice albeit a bit weak.
Taste: Sweet malt, peach, mango, grass with a short lasting grapefruit bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Aroma and taste were actually good, but it would have been better if the aromas were stronger and the finishing taste was longer lasting rather than its current abrupt end.

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 25th December 2018. Poured into a d’Achouffe tulip glass.
Appearance: A cloudy purplish red colour with a one finger pinkish head that dissipated quite quickly while leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Cherry, raspberry, lactose and yoghurt.
Taste: A bit light, but its sweet and sour cherry with a light hint of yoghurt.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I liked the aroma, but its taste was slightly on the watery side, yet surprisingly medium bodied. Having said that, it definitely grew on me the more I drank it. I would get this again.
