3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2013 Tap: opaque brown-copper body, lighter amber near top and bottom. Creamy eggshell head, a lace ring or two is left behind. Aroma is juicy, spicy orange flesh and orange peel. Slightly sugary, Pez candy like, a bit of wheat, too? Taste is wheaty, tastes like a fruited wheat beer... Need to confirm. Hint of orange zest, not as strong as I’d like it. Kind if normal orange, not much "blood" orange. Very mild tartness mid palate that fades to a dry, wheat finish. Light toasty malt, too. Thin, crisp mouth feel. Okay... Orange vibrancy grows with warmth. Beer gets better. Pretty nice fruited ale.
