Had on tap. Has a spicy fruity nose with light malt. It pours hazy gold with a one finger thick foam cap. The palate is big and fruity with apricot over bread finishing with a bitter accent. It is creamy with an average body and average carbonation.

330ml bottle. 19/09/16. Straw coloured. Towering, frothy white head, good retention with some lacing. Effervescent. Aroma of yeast, cloves, lemon, wheat and perfume. Slightly medicinal. Light sweetness and similar bitterness. Light to medium bodied, effervescent and creamy. Pleasant alcohol warmth. An interesting drop in terms of aroma and taste but the mouthfeel of this one is superb and the more I drink, the more I enjoy it. 8.
