3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a vibrant orange-caramel color with an enormous creamy-fluffy orange-white head that lingered and left excellent lacing. The aroma was tagny and sweetish with notes of phenol, chalk , citrus and perfume. The flavor was tart, tangy and semi sweet with a bit of chalk and notes of lemon and perfume. Medium length finish. Medium body. Pleasant.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can says "Farmhouse Ale"...but this definitely tastes more like a pale ale. Has a slight Belgian feel...extra carbonation like a saison, but the flavor is mostly APA. Cloudy medium orange appearance. Flavor of caramel malt, mild citrus and hops. This is a good year round beer and works for anytime of the day.

Orange can. Gold top. Served cold. Nose is caramel with light toast. Taste is like buttered toast with a grassy hop flavor. Very bready and toasty as it warms. Less butter. Decent but not great by any means.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
BOD 9/26/14. Pours a slightly hazy orange, the same color as the can. World class head volume, retention and lacing.
Light nose of biscuit and a hint of grassy and floral hops. As it warms, a bit of orange is noted.
Medium body that approaches a creamy texture. Superb carbonation with a nice effervescence in the middle and a prickly rush in the finish.
The flavor profile is borderline outstanding. It is reasonably intense, slightly complex but is perfectly balanced. It begins with a nice blended flavor that slowly separates. Grassy hops lead then flow into a very mild bitterness. Under the bitterness is an orange flavored background. Biscuit malt proves a subtle balancing sweetness at the end of the middle. The finish has a ginger note that exhibits itself in both flavor and a lingering light spicy bitterness. The finish is dry and a ginger bitterness lingers.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. A hazy, pale amber colored beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is rather malty, with a light fruity touch. Some grass and pine cones too. It’s medium to full-bodied, semi-dry and pleasantly carbonated. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, some pine cones and grass as well as caramel, bready malts. Long finish with a touch of pine cones and orange zest. Too malty for my likings, but a decent beer anyway, and after five hours of driving it felt nice. 150614
