2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is very complex with yeast, malt, soap, vegetables, ginger, coriander, and leaves. The appearance is cloudy orange/gold with a very large head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is smooth and a tad thin but helped a lot by plenty of carbonation. Overall I think the beer is unique and worth drinking.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 5.8%. Grassy hop aroma. Hazy orange colour. Big stable tan head. The flavour has a citric hoppiness with some malt to balance. It continues citric, but not infected, more like a citrus fruit flavour. Reminds me of a thinner, more balanced version of their Winterlude.
