Intro: A 440ml can, with a fresh before date of 2nd June 2022. Poured into a winebar glass.
Appearance: A hazy, slightly murky orange colour with a two finger white head that had decent retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Mango, melon, grapefruit zest, citrus rind, resinous, pine.
Taste: As you’d expect from the aroma, fruity, mango, melon, grapefruit zest, citrus rind, floral, a bit soapy, resinous, piney.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to soft carbonation.
Overall: This was interesting and mostly fine, but it had this soapy, floral, zesty flavour mix that didn’t quite work for me.
