355ml bottle, poured into Leffe chalice.

A: Golden, hazy, half finger head, not great retention but lots of lacing.

S: Cascade, mango, citrus.

T: Mango, citrus, grass, pine, apple, balanced out by slightly bitter finish. Not overly bitter and hid the booze well.

M: Smooth, light body, well carbonated. Went down very well.

O: The longer I nursed it, the stronger the aroma and taste became. Less bitter than I expected, I hope the long journey didn't have a negative effect. Very good.
