3.9/5  rDev +14%

A clouded light amber, an off-white beer with good lacing and good curtains.

Spices, citric aromas and some stable. Very interesting mix.

Sweet white bread, orange peel marmalade, spicy with a coriander note.

Medium carbonation, soft and oily, a dry finish.

A very obvious bitterness but an interesting sour, bretty profile.

3.1/5  rDev -9.4%

Light orange to amber with a thin, foamy white lacing for a head with some left on the side of the glass.

Strong pine and hops aroma from this one that was almost like an DIPA this was followed with some citrus and wheat aromas along some banana and a strong grapefruit aroma towards the end.

Very bitter to begin with thanks to the huge hops and pine prescence. This also has some fruity notes and citrus through it along with background wheat, banana and clove & the finish was incredibly bitter and too strong for my liking.

Smooth on the palate with some sweetness and a medium body, the main thing to note was the huge amounts of bitterness throughout that made it a struggle at times and the finish was a dry one.

Not a great beer and not one that I enjoyed. The beer was just far too bitter and I didn't find it particularly well balanced either, meaning it's not a beer that I would be interested in trying again.
