2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at James’ place for a tasting. Pours a hazy amber with a good amount of floaty swirly little bits. A good amount of acetone, similar to the blood orange. Behind all of the acetone there’s a touch of fruit and funk, but the acetone overpowers everything. Medium bodied, soft fruit, loads of acetone, tangy with a bit of caramel. Lingering acid, more acetone.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle from Mike (who didn’t know how bad this beer was and apologized numerous times.) Thanks for the gesture though! Pours a clear golden with big head. Once the cap was taken off this thing started to semi-gush out with just bubbles. No lack of carbonation. Aroma is a harsh cheese funk with loads of Acetone and some vanilla. Taste is more acetone and vinegar with some cinnamon and sweet fruit near the tail end of the taste. Just not good and off to say the least. Couldn’t finish a glass. What a mess.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at James’ place. Pours hazy gold with a white head. A little bit of nail polish remover, but not as offensive as the Blood Orange version, with some light berry sweetness and tartness. Not bad.

Bottle from MBrady. 150 of 304. Shared at tasting at my house. Pours orange gold. Nose and taste of acetone, soured fruit, dragonfruit and nail polish. Slight earthiness. Acetone and nail polish is less pronounced than in Blood Orange but still there.

Bottle thanks to Ryan. Pours a cloudy orange with paperthin white head. The aroma is strong funk and vinegar. Medium mouthfeel wth light sour fruit and nice tart finish. Easy to drink a good fruit lambic from Dark Horse.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sample at 2013 MBG Winter Beer Festival. I am wondering if I got the bottom of the barrel. Purple brown cloudy and silty appearance. Weird chemical small and taste. Some nice tropical fruit but hidden.

1.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a hazy gold with no head. Aroma is acetone, funk and oak. Taste is sweet tropical fruit, acetone and citrus. Very acidic. The sweetness from the dragon fruit makes this drinkable. It's still not good though

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On draft at 4 Elves (from notes). Pours caramel with no real carbonation or lacing. Smells and tastes of acetone and fruit. Below average on the palate. Disappointing.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Not quite the abomination that is the blood orange. It is still acetone city with just an awkward and disgusting flavor.
