Pours pale amber/orange with a large head.
Nose shows overt peppery, herbal and spicy hops along with strong orange peel notes. Some doughy wheat underneath works well as a base.
Flavours include some light malt sweetness before orange peel and herbal, spicy hops come rolling through by the truckload, leading to an assertively bitter finish.

A: Pours a slightly cloudy amber beer into the glass. Creamy, off-white head with uneven sized bubbles. Heavy lacings.

S: Smells citrus, strawberries and biscuit malts.

T: Starts with strawberries, citrus and dry grassy tones. Ends with even more grassy tones.

M: Medium body. Medium carbonation.

A clouded brass colored brew, a small white head, goos lacing and good curtains.

Smelling chemical, fruit esters, soap, some lemon soda.

Staring with sweet white bread, then spices and fruits, like a bubblegum with coriander.

Little carbonation, a soft and slightly sticky texture, a medium body and smooth finish.

Very hard to capture, could be ok instead of rosé or cider. But not really my kind of beer. Could be juice for clowns.
