Intro: A 22 fl. oz. bomber with no clear bottled on or best before date. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A lightly hazy golden orange colour with a big three finger white head that had good retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Citrusy orange juice, orange rind, lemon, tangy, lightly tart and a touch of brett.
Taste: Similar to the aroma, citrusy, orange juice, orange, lemon, lemon zest, tangy, grass, brett with hints of tropical fruit, pineapple.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Not bad at all, but not as good or complex as the Femme Fatale Blanc that I had just tried a day earlier. Still worth a try though.
