Appearance – Hazy amber/copper colour with an above average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Grains/wheat, citrus, coriander/cloves, yeast

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an above average amount of carbonation. I can taste grains/bread mixed with citrus and some faint yeast. There is also some coriander and clove mixed with a peppery spiciness. It finishes with a spicy and lightly sweet aftertaste.

Overall – Probably one of the best Mill Street beers. It's got a nice variety of flavours going on that keeps it interesting. I'd order it again.

Hazy amber/orange colour, incredibly light sheet of white head, some white liquid looking yeast collected at the bottom of the glass, no lace at all. Smell is full of fruity yeast and spices, citrusy orange scents, an underlying candy sweetness is present and more than anything has a very belgian nose on a whole. Taste is of spicy yeast with some floral flavours, fruit comes in as well with obvious green apple, orange and more yeastiness mid palate, at points some sweetness is present but finishes quite dry and fruity. Med-hight carbonation, medium body and a nice enough feel. Overall this was rather enjoyable, felt more to me like a belgian pale but this was quite drinkable and something I would purchase again if I didn't have to get this in a mixed pack.

Spicy nose. Quick dissipating foamy head on medium yellow body. Medium mouthfeel. OK drinkability. Too sweet and yeasty to be really the style, but an acceptable Belgian, with some fruit and sugar, corriander , fennel and other herbs. Fresh.Thanks Pino.

a funky new addition to the sampler pack for Spring 2012. A hazy unfiltered beer that seems to have Hefe like bubblegum notes to the nose but tempered with the farmhouse yeasty smell associated with the Biere de Garde style. A well made beer that tastes like a hefe crossed with Saison Dupont. I would love to see this releases in big 22oz bottles.
