Nose
A little rubbery to start then lemon, sweet cereals and hops push through.
Palate
Crisp and bittersweet, though rather gassy. Sweet cereals and soft melon and pear notes line the palate, but this is an easydrinking, undemanding beer.
Finish
Dry, warming and a little bit chewy, with hops and bitterness building and some continuing fruit.
Comment
Not very complex, but a clean, light and quaffable beer for the strength, with a welcome freshness coming from the bottle conditioning.

Nose
Pale malt, a little grainy, some pale stone fruit and a little lemon, and a herbal edge reminiscent of a Belgian triple.
Palate
Quite lively carbonation, lightening the body somewhat. Nice pale malt character, very clean, sweetish, with some herbal notes (lemongrass?)
Finish
The pale stone fruit character (slightly peachy?) dries to a softly bitter finish. Dryish, but somehow slightly cloying.
Comment
An unusual take on the style, the double-fermentation adds some complexity.
