3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a gusher 750mL bottle at the RBWG Grand Tasting, thanks to Aaron Nielsen for sharing. Pours cloudy light orange with a massive white head that eventually settles into thick, rocky lace. The nose is fresh orange juice with bitter orange peel, along with some baking spice. The flavor is exactly the same, with a bit of added bread malt, the full orange and baking spice come through nicely. The body is medium with some light tannin, super lively, overactive carbonation, and a long orange juice and bitter orange peel finish.

Psyched to run through the whole set. Past it's prime though :( my fault. Still a fun night with the gang at Sante.
A - pour is a clear light amber with no head. S - so weird! chemicals galore, fake ocean spray juice notes, tamarind, honey gone wrong, with some orange and tangelo. Wood stain, styro popcorn, cedar sache. M - light and tart. Not much carb. A little slick. T - same as the nose. O - past it's prime won't count against it 3.5
