3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy dark bronze orange with a huge light khaki head. The aroma is medicinal with some oranges and apples. There is also a pleasant green fresh cut wood scent. It’s like you entered an orchard and cut some branches while eating part of the harvest. The taste is like light brown sugar mixed with some iced tea. There is also some light mango fruit in the finish. Hints of dry wood throughout. Highly carbonated, this is a decent brew.

Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of fruits, and so is the flavor, leading to a slightly spicy finish. The body is a bit thin.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, orangey body with a medium-sized, dense, off-white head.
Smell: A touch of lemon, more than a touch of orange. Also notes of orange blossom honey, light caramel, and yeast (though only everso slightly).
Taste: Light caramel and honeyed maltiness with a medium sweetness. Small pinch of lemon zest. A full helping of orange oil. Slight yeast character. Restrained bitterness. A bit peppery near the end. Lingering orangey taste on the drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Well carbonated.
Drinkability: Oh, it’s not so bad, really, though it could stand to use a greater depth of malt character.

An orange appearance with a carbonated white head. The aroma reminds me of fruit cake with some spices, dark fruit, and orange peel. The flavor contains some peaches, apricot, oranges, and spices. The mouthfeel is a bit sugary and carbonated. Overall I really enjoyed this beer.
