Me and 2 other guys payed six quid for this one. defintely not worth the 6 bloody quid. Lots of menthol, citrus, some yeasty sourness. Some clove, toilet cleaner and vomit, fizzy and detergenty. bittersweet flavour, a huge dissapointment(750ml bottle- ChelmsfordBF-03')

Pours a very hazy, dark golden yellow color with banana hues and a one finger, frothy white head that quickly settles into a thin ring.  Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.

Heavily spiced aroma with lots of pepper, coriander, clove and lemon zest.  Reminds me more of a witbier with bready yeast, citrus fruit and a strong banana character.  

Medium bodied but a bit thinner than expected with a zesty, peppery spice presence that dominates the palate.   Lots of coriander, clove and citrus zest followed by bready yeast, banana and an odd herbal/medicinal presence.  Slightly metallic unpleasant flavoring the finish.  The spices are way too strong overpowering everything else.   Too thin and could use more citrus sweetness.  Subtle farmhouse funk in the finish but again it feels more like a week witbier.

The nose offers a decent range of herbal notes but is also rather perfumey. Taste is cloyingly sweet with noticeable alcohol. Rather thick mouthfeel with too much carbonation. Overall not as complex a taste experience as one would expect from the Dupont yeast.
