3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light hazy pale color with a medium fluffy white head. The aroma is bready with floral, orange, and clove notes. It smells kind of sweet but appetizing none the less. Flavor is lemon with a clearly defined orange peel character with some light spiciness. There is a bitterness here that borders on astringent and it’s almost bad, but almost brilliant at the same time... know what I mean? No? I’m not sure I do either. At the same time there is that fruity pebbles thing happening that I’m never terribly fond of unless it’s paired with some other kind of remarkable or unique flavor, here it is not. In this case the fruity pebbles are fairly muted so it’s not cloying or annoying, just kind of there. This is very refreshing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz. bottle. Sweet, citric and spicy aroma, plenty of orange and coriander to be found, along with lighter notes of honey, wheat grain, perfume and faint clove. Lightly hazy deep golden color, head is slight and subsiding. Some heavy spice and light hop bitterness to start, turning citric and acidic, finishing with a wash of watery sweetness and fading malt. Thin and a bit harsh on the palate, body is light-medium. A little overly sweet, and not well integrated. Underwhelming.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is hazy dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), trace hops (flowers), with light notes of melon rind, orange, coriander.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter, unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Oof...pretty unpleasant to drink thanks to abrasive bitterness (perhaps from spices) and a dirty aftertaste. Not much in the nose.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose is cinnamon toast with some orange zest. Hazy Orangey gold color with a medium head. Cotton candy jam on a biscuit with some subtle spicy hops for balance. Big carbonation, medium body, sweet spicy finish. Lots of flavors going on in this, but seems a little too sweet, almost if it was designed this way with the expectation that one would add a lemon. Decent beer though.
