Brewed in July. Probably not held in best conditions, but still tasting ok.

Nose is pear, lemon peel, floral hops, and a touch of Belgian yeast clove and fennel. Quite pretty.

Quite a lot of hops on the palate which mostly come across as the noble, floral type. A bit of ester comes in mid way and finish is super dry with a touch of spice and mild bitterness. Great creamy mousse on the mouthfeel with a touch of astringency.

Very dry quaffer that would be great with mild cheese or salad. Hoppier and less yeasty than I remember, but that's the RR way.

On the simpler side for RRB but still delicious and crushable. I think I grabbed this the day I visited the RRB pub on way back from Sonoma w Royle. Bottled 6/15. 5.15%alc.
