Otley Brewing Co. O-Garden (4.8%)

I poured this really badly and as a result I’ve got a bit of a yeast soup going on.
Regardless of that this is an almost jaw-droppingly good beer.
It pours a satsuma orange colour with a light foamy head and the smell is fresh and zippy with citrus and mown lawns.
I was concerned about the addition of coriander, orange peel and cloves but here it’s been done with such a lightness of touch that it lends delightful, gentle tones rather than big bangs of overwhelming flavour.
There’s a good caramel and banana background to this wheat beer and the spiced orange and coriander wash across it as the snappy pith of the hops give a dry bitterness to the finish.
What a super beer this is.
