Nose
Juicy pineapple leads the soft tropical fruit presence.
Palate
Mellow fruity flavours cover the palate, courtesy, it seems, of both hops and the fermentation process, with pineapple and orange particularly prominent.
Finish
Dry, hoppy, bitter and a little bit chewy, with fruit lingering.
Comment
Unfortunately, this South African beer was rather lively on opening, which meant that the sediment lifted and the beer became thicker and chewier than intended. The flavours remained good, however.
