Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus, lemon, funk/feet, and grapefruit peel. It pours a cloudy dull yellow with a small white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thick ring. The flavor starts with citrus...mostly orange. The finish has light-moderate florals, lemon peel, faint grapefruit, and a touch of funk. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.
