Smells of white grapes and malt with a small amount of saffron to follow. Tasting it the grape is the strongest with hints of honey and saffron. The malt does come through after a few sips. After a while I feel as I have been drinking white wine as well. The finish is crisp and has a aftertaste of grapes. I would buy again.

Slightly orangish-yellow. Quite hazy. Thin head.

Aroma of light pale malts, a little spice.

Taste is complex - a grapefruit-like sourness and rich pale malt An undefined but strong herbiness. Spice. Alcohol.

Different and interesting. But doesn't really ring my bell.
