Intro: A 750ml bottle with no bottled on or best before date that I could see. A slow gusher when opened. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A slightly hazy golden orange colour with a two finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly to a settled thin layer and sparse lacing.
Aroma: Light peppery spice, hints of mustiness, some tropical peach and orange juice with an interesting melon-y honeydew and cantaloupe in the background.
Taste: Quite sweet honey, cantaloupe, honeydew, blood orange with hints of funk and pepper spice.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with moderate prickly carbonation.
Overall: This was nice and interestingly different with the melon aroma and flavours. It’s actually great for summers, but I would have preferred it in a small bottle as it is quite sweet.
