Intro: A 330ml 360 lid can, canned on 20th November 2018, and with a best before date of 20th August 2019. Poured into a Holy Mountain tulip glass.
Appearance: A hazy golden orange colour with a two finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly but left some nice sticky lacing.
Aroma: Peach, canned peach, a little plastic-y, with a dash of lime.
Taste: Tart, peach, mandarin skin, wheat and a lime finish.
Mouthfeel: Dry, light to medium bodied with moderate fizzy carbonation.
Overall: I like the aroma, but the fruity peach flavours, while there, don’t last long, maybe it’s the strong dryness that kicks in. I preferred the original version more.

Intro: A 330ml can with a best before date of 11th May 2019. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A mostly clear golden colour with a one finger white head that had decent retention but left only sparse lacing.
Aroma: Strong melon and citrusy pith, light grain, biscuit and a sweet cantaloupe-y finish.
Taste: Sweet malts, light bitterness, lots of melon, grapefruit, lemon zest, a touch grainy, grass and a long melon finish.
Mouthfeel: Dry, crisp, light bodied with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: Started off pretty good already, but it definitely grew on me the more I drank it as the melon and citrus really came through.
