Golden orange with ring and some lace. Nice orangey spicey gummy aroma. Semi-sweet orangy fruity herbal with finish herbal grassy bitterness. Tastes like a nice saison. I think we will need a gluten free category soon though, just to help gluten-free people sort it out.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from Scott. Poured a golden/orange with an average sized frothy off white head. Aroma has a bit of funk about it with notes of grains, curaco and a hint of white wine. Body is nice with a medium-full mouthfeel and average carbonatoin with a lingering aftertaste. Flavor of grains, wet cereal, funk, lemons and a hint of yeast. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 07/19/2012. Pours hazy orange amber, sparse large-bubbled head. Nose is citrus, oregano, grassy hop character, grain (sorghum I guess), and strange, light rubber character. Taste has zesty citrus and fruit, spice, bitter grains. Light, smooth body, very dry. Meh. It seems this one was better on tap?

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Pat with Tom and Pat, pours a hazy glowing orange color with thin head and med. lacing. Aromas of peppermint, brett, seafood scum, coriander, and artificial orange. Taste is pretty much salty mussels with metalic funk, and bitter ashy grains. Not pleasent at all. Weird herbs, clams, vanilla, and other shit spice. Bring on the topper.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of Pat. Shared with Vincent and Pat. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange with little head. Nose is light citrus, soiled tampons, oysters, and acetone. Taste is sweet and metallic like Robocopís taint. Thankfully there was a Heady Topper nearby to wash away this taste.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. 12 oz. Courtesy of my buddy Mark at work. Thanks, Mark. Pours nice clear orange with a thin wisp of white head. Aroma of a band-aid drizzled with honey. Tastes like orange flavored plastic. You know, I just donít feel this beer deserves the rest of my attention. Itís terrible. Listen to TerdFerg: stick to the Topper. That beer is beyond awesome. Cheers. And on a personal note, please stop with the goddamn gluten-free bullshit. If youíre allergic, donít drink beer. You donít see Reeseís making peanut-butter-free cups for people with peanut allergies. Take heed.
