ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Nice looking orange pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is tropical coconut, a bit of barnyard and funk. Slightly sweet on the palate. Interesting concept, but there’s a little to much cloying sweetness and some of the flavors don’t mesh well. Ok.
