- Smells great taste don’t live up to it.
Sounds great on the tin, smells great when you open it, it’s beer to foam out over the blow valve, mad a mess, made my brew shed smell incredible and was so looking forward to it.
After putting it in keg and letting it settle I poured a pint, it’s not the best smells loverly but struggle to drink two, I am a huge ipa drinker and lover the citrus, this is the first poor mangrove pack I have had, would not buy again.
- I wanted to love it
On paper its delicious. When you open the pouch, the smell is divine and when you add the hot water the steam is gorgeous. Here however is where the lovestory ends.
I have never brewed anything that foams so much. It required daily cleaning of the fermenter for the first week.
There is no straining bag for the dry hops such as Festival provide, meaning that despite me trying to strain it there are still bits.
It tastes like poor-quality peach,and the passionfruit flavour is non existant. Despite that, it is drinkable, but only just!
