22oz bottle from strykzone.Golden orange opaque hue with a big fluffy head. Pine is the dominant smell and flavor. But not over powering. Very interesting. Glad I got to try it.

Yellow gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Sweet wheaty malt start with floral hops on the nose. Flavor is large citrus lemon/orange zest I think and wheat malt. Medum body with good carbonation. Pretty nice as wheats go

Can-to-mouth... RBSG 2014… I’m rating this blind, at the brewery, with no knowledge of the style or previous ratings. It appears to be clear and dirty orange, but I can’t be certain. Can’t smell much of anything other than a light note of orange Creamcicle. Medium to full-bodied with energetic carbonation. The flavor doesn’t talk to me all that much, but there’s plenty of bitterness and orange zest. Goes great with STL barBque!

Scipio (682) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Pours a clear golden with a thin white head. The aroma is potent and full of fruity citrus. It is very big on orange, some grapefruit, caramel, and grassy hops. The taste is tart due to the strong citrus impressions. Orange remains strong. However, it is balanced equally in strength by grapefruit. Some subtle lemon and grassiness is found in here as well. Sharp aftertaste of both orange and grapefruit is very short. Light in body, thin and slick in texture, and softer in carbonation. This is light and rather refreshing. I could honestly see myself drinking one of these with my eggs during brunch. Its good.

Absolutely loved the orange zest! That is what made it unique and extremely refreshing! Received in a trade as an extra and what an ’extra’ it was! Delicious!
