Notes

Tasting notes:
Exceptionally fruity (apricot, citrus, slight peach), light body, low malt character, smooth hops to start and finishes more harsh but still smooth.
More notes a few weeks in the keg;
More mellow, the bouquet is unreal and so in your face. An expensive beer to brew and so fucking worth it.
