Can. Lemon coloured. Slight haze. Thin frothy head.
Hints of lemon and tea when smelt.
Earthy bergamot flavour with citrus intermingled. Some straw and orchard fruit present.
Zingy with a refreshing astringency.
Interesting and one for a summers afternoon.
330 ml can, from Être Gourmet, Belgium. ABV is 3.6%. Pale golden colour, moderate white head. Moderate aroma of citrus, tea and dust. The flavour is better, citric with notes of lemon zest and bergamot, hints of tea. Moderate to low bitterness. Refreshing.
Pours a cloudy pale golden color with a medium sized head.
Has an intense nose, offering big chunks of lime, a flowery note and ripe oranges.
This is pleasantly carbonated, has a light mouthfeel to it, with an equally light metallic note during it‘s finish.
Tastes of black tea actually, which blends surprisingly well into a multi layered lemon dryness, enriched by garden herbs, dried flowers and a note of grass. Once the tone is set in this, the beer produces an additional hop smack, consisting of more oranges, together with a fitting note of bready, caramel malts. Finishes light and crisp with just the right amount of bitter limes to provide a pleasant aftertaste.
This is a great tasting beer, with it‘s additives being cleverly chosen. Both, lime zest and tea, add to a prominent and entertaining hop complexity in this, making you forget that this is actually below 4 abv.
Pours a pale light orange with smaller head that leaves decent lace. Nose is light refreshing hops with primarily citrus and some floral notes. Taste is initially very lemony but falls very hollow a moment later. Super refreshing, but very little substance. A bit torn on this as the level of enjoyment would really depend on the circumstances. Very light mouthfeel. Overall, close to good but lacking in several areas.
From a 330ml bottle.
L: Hazy, very pale yellow with an orange core. Snow white head quickly becomes a thin cap.
S: Fruity American hops.
T: As the nose. Plus a sharp lemony tang.
F: Very light bodied. The carbonation and dryness just about save it from being watery.
O: A pleasant but thin APA. The lemon zest is more noticeable than the tea.
