2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle from Spirits Manahawkin. Poured a lighter orange/brown body with a smaller fizzy off white head that quickly and totaly disipates. Aroma is not good, medicinal and dusty with a touch of green apple and vanilla candle. Fizzy carbonation dominates the body on this one with perhaps a medium mouthfeel and a quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor of old bread, earth, dough, tea. Blah.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours out as a flat, murky orange, with minimal to zero head. Citrus orange aroma and taste, Light bodied wheat ale where the citrus flavor dominates. Summer refresher nothing more, nothing less.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
pours hazy if not cloudy golden orange with a nice orange cap, some retention and lacing. doughy caramel, sweetish spicy cereals, phenols, fruitiness - oranges, wheat spiciness, bitter herbs and other spices - dill upfront, shy coriander in this miscellaneous spicy concoction, very lightly tart small fruits. moderately low carbonation, light body, slightly astringent and assertive herbal-grassy-very peppery but also citrusy finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nose is extremely sweet and candyish, honeyed, orange, citric; pours cloudy golden with extremely heavy carbonation and a fizzy cola head. Taste is actually not all that sweet, even off-dry; some earthy and anise-leaning character (I’d say it’s a phenol) with some strong-starting alcohol, orange jam, strong honey. Wheat, minerals, spice, very light caramel. Medium-full body, sting of tartness and light burn on the tongue, everywhere an assault. I like the bready bit toward the end, but that’s also washed out a bit by the phenols. Actually really much more fun to drink than I’ve let on, has some rich spirit undertones and stands up against other foods and drinks.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap poured into a shaker. Aromas of orange, cereal and wheat, and a light bit of clove. The appearance is a cloudy orange body with a very thin white ring that doesn’t leave any lace. The beer is a medium sweet with a light bitter. It has a flat, light, creamy carbonation with a medium body and a light, slick texture. A strong spicy (clove) note comes through in the finish with a bit of an orange peel. The aftertaste is a dry spicy note. I’m a bit suspicious that they may have poured me a Blue Moon, but I have no proof.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper pour with a thin tan head. Aroma is almost like a honey mead. flavor is mostly honey with some orange peel and other citrus notes. Some light spice towards the finish honey fades quickly. Interesting take on the style.
