Intro: A 12 fl. oz. can with a packaged on date of 7th August 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A clear golden colour with a two finger soapy white head that dissipated fairly quickly but left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Tart, gummy peach ring candy, with a touch of lemon.
Taste: Much like the aroma, tart, sour peach gummy candy, lemon peel, lightly sweet, and a touch of wheat.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I like sour peach gummy candies, and this tastes and smells very close to that, but for some reason in liquid form, it just didn’t translate for me.
