750ml bottle, served in a teku glass.

Pours a vibrant lighter yellow body, hazy and cloudy, one finger white head with good retention time and thin collar, no film and not much lacing. Smells of lemon, a bit of vinegar and lactic tartness, moderate floral notes, oak, light peach skin, sugar, not much alcohol. Flavour is complex; with lemon, a bit of Bretty citrus, fair amount of floral notes, more but still mild peach skin than in the nose, a bit of sugar but not quite clear rum flavour, oak, minerals. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a bit on the lighter side, effervescent and crisp, refreshing. Overall, a very tasty, relatively unique AWA that I felt holds up against some of the big names out there. It has a different profile with a decent bit of fruit in it, but even that is a bit different in a good way.

Poured from an unmarked bottled purchased at the brewery into two Ake Apothecary snifters. Pours a golden yellow. Smells funky with light peach notes and rum notes. Tastes starts off spicy and finishes with sweet peach. The right amount of tartness. Has a great mouthfeel with incredible bubbles. Leaves you wanting more. I don't give this 5 rating lightly however this beer stood up to my expectations.
