Longish head
Bubbles: fine. White

Color: Dark orange/persimmon
Aroma: assertive. Bread, hints of oranges and roasted oats.
Refreshing, dry, light and fruity approach.
Bread, hints of caramel and roasted oats, dry coffee beans.
Lingers on pleasantly with welcome acidity.
Changes little with food but for a deeper dryness backed with lighter acidity.
Dry roasted oats and coffee beans making a strong comeback once away from food.

Overall: Deep, dry and complex craft beer!
Lots of character.
Multiple facets keeping coming up!
A challenge for connoisseurs!
