3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Butters’ Slutfest: Orange blossom and lemon aroma, reminiscent of sorachi hops. Hazy amber, with floaties, medium yellow head. Orange peel flavor from beginning to end, but finishes tart like a cumquat, but not as sour. Refreshing and tasty. Very unique.

Hazy orange pour, white head. Citrus, orange juice, sweet malt, bread, light spice, and tropical fruit. Tastes pretty good, the more I drink the more orange I notice.

Bottle at abraxas. Hazy orange-sickle. Stale pale malts maybe the bottle is a bit old. The delicate orange is late to the party but fun to have. Light on the tongue. Fresh and delightfully dry. I wish I had a fresh one but even old it's good.

Thanks sebletitje for the share. Pours hazy orange gold with a white head. Nose is orange, malt, spice, citrus fruit, sugary light fruit, and star fruit. Flavor is a lot of sweetness and light fruit that is beginning to make me think that there is a basic Japanese fruit for beers like these. Light bodied and very sessionable, enjoyable beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
As Shizuoka Natsumikan. Hazy orange color with a medium head. A very plantish and leafy aroma, like walking into a greenhouse. Very light flavors of fruit and flowers. A touch of bitterness on the finish. Fairly non-descript. I am not familiar with the fruit used in this beer, but it may be too delicate to stand up to a beer, as it really does not seem to have added much.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy dark brown orange color. It looks more like a meal than a drink. A slightly tart mikan nose erupts, along with citrus fruits, cotton candy and some sweet maltiness. Sweet malty mouth is well balanced with ample hops and a refreshing tartness. Mikan, candy apples and cotton candy all come through. Sweet malty finish. Yum. This is one of the better fruit beers I have had.
This kicks ass over his other Mikan ale (why a brewery brews two mikan ales, I don’t know).

Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. The look is cloudy, bright orange color, with an ok off white head. The smell is fruity, hops, flowers, and tropical fruit. The taste is hops, low bitterness, flowers, some malts, and fruits.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
633oz bottle. Big white foamy rings of lace surrounded the glass of this clear orange ale. Flavor of toasted grains, chocolate, and sour tangerine. Not sure where the chocolate comes from, since it doesn’t match the color. And the tart clementine is a very dominate flavor in this offering. Aroma of citrus zest and bread. I just can’t get over how much malt character there is and to be toppled by such an acidic sour orange tartness. It’s a fantastic fruit beer.
