Color is a cloudy honey orange color with a thin layer of white head. Aroma is of citrus, pine, and caramel malt. Taste is heavy on pine and citrus with light malt sweetness. Medium body and crisp carbonation. Overall this is an old bottle (at least 3 months old) so taste may be a bit off, but seems a little too heavy on the pine and citrus.

Look: Copper amber; Bit of cloudiness and some lacing.

Smell: Typical pine and citrus notes.

Taste: Grapefruit and pine. Not much else.

Feel: Non-descript.

Overall: A bit one dimensional. Decent body; heavy on the citrusy pith. Not enough malt-sweetness to
counterbalance. Better examples available.

Finger plus of creamy off-white color, mixed bubble set with divots across the surface, retention is just above average, the lacing is broad and sticks well if not exceptionally. Clean, clear coppery color with widely dispersed bubbles of larger size, shines well in the glass. Fresh, if at times hollow, nose of wet leafy matter, dried pine sap, tarry earth, black tea, mandarin oranges and jasmine, the pineapple, apple, pear to apricot fruit guileless and of few words. Light to medium-bodied with a creamy texture which helps it flow with relative ease, the carbonation more of a subtle churn than prickle. Does not really emphasize any specific element, seems intent on blending it all into a whole. Orange and minor pink grapefruit, flowers, pine breeze and mineral water, stays fresh rather than indulge in anything beyond a patina of breadiness, caramel and brown sugar, not dry yet nowhere near “sweet” either. The peach, apricot, apple fruit clean and not tropical. There is a bitter and unbalanced quality to the finish which stands out because of how integrated and unassuming it was beforehand. You’d run out of conversation halfway through dinner if sat next to it.
