Best before June 17, 2014. So.... not super fresh.

Appearance: Hazy orange with some floaties.

Aroma: Ooh.. Sweet honey like malts, orange, apricot, sticky brown sugar, faint pine, light tropical fruits, very nice smelling beer.

Taste: Unbelievable. So refreshing but not light at all. Sweet honey, apricot, tangerine, some hop bitterness, light lemon.

Body: BIG creamy mouth feel as expected.

Overall: This has been described as a cross between a pale ale, a wheat beer and a cream ale. It's that hard to classify. But who cares anyway? It's freaking DELICIOUS. Highly Recommended. You wont be sorry.

lots of flavours coming through - beautifully balanced!

aroma: bready orange/grapefruit/pine

taste: light brown sugar, orange, orange peel, orange candy, grapefruit, bready malt, slight raisins and spice with a hint of smokiness. Loved the taste and balance of this beer.

very enjoyable, achieving it's aims of a sweet and bitter balance.
