12oz brown bottle. No freshness date.
Pours a very murky, rich peach coloured beer, large bubbles and a snapping white foam head that settles to nothing quite quickly. Loads of yeast! (unfiltered)
Sweet bread, light citrus, faint herbal and a bit of grain in the aroma. Very faint nose, overall.
Smooth, medium-bodied. An upfront malt sweetness and strong/distinct honey sweetness pairs well with the bold fruity flavours of melon, peach and apricot. Tea-like herbal character lies beneath and adds depth, while a light citrus sharpness of sweet oranges splash the malt sweetness from the palate. Touch of spice (clove). The finish dries out a bit, getting a bit crisp, with residual a residual fruit sweetness that lingers. Alcohol becomes a bit pronounced as the beer warms.
Although not traditional, this is an interesting, and very fruity, take on an unfiltered wheat beer. I could see myself relaxing and sucking back quite a few of these on a nice summer day.
Thanks to trbeer.
