Nose
Surprisingly subdued for the strength, with the richness of delicate pale malts and very gentle orange-citrus notes.
Palate
In contrast to the aroma, full and fruity, with rich, silky malt and tropical and citrus fruits. Sweetish and gently warming.
Finish
Quite thick. Malt lingers and there's a developing, drying bitterness with tangy hops growing all the time.
Comment
An easy-drinking strong ale from New Zealand. It doesn't have the idiosyncrasy or bold character of the best Belgian ales but it's well balanced and pleasant all the same.
