Tasting notes
Colour/appearance: pours a rich apricot colour.
Aroma: super hoppy on the nose, with pine resin, full pineapple and tangerine citrus aroma.
Flavour: Intense flavour profile, with full hop flavours of pine and tangerine zest balanced by a malt richness. Luscious, full bodied and exceptionally well balanced.
Aftertaste: smooth, with an incredible length of bitter pine.

Food pairings: at 10% ABV, this is a beer that deserves to be savoured and sipped slowly as an after dinner drink. That said, if you happen to have some Crozier Blue sheeps’ milk cheese lying around the house, that’s a bitter/salt pairing well worth trying.
