2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 ounce can - $2.25 at Tasty Beverage Co. in Asheville, North Carolina.
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, yellow-hued body with a thin, rather brief, white head.
Smell: Mercy. A buttery-smelling caramel scent, and a fairly strong one at that overshadows any meager citrus notes and any perceivable spice elements.
Taste: As expected from the aroma, it’s an odd, oddly sweet caramel coupled with butter flavor that gives a curious sensation of kettle corn. Maybe a flash of herb and lemon under there, who knows, really, as it’s mainly the rich, sweet, buttery flavor. I was hoping for an under-performing wit at worst, a delightfully passable wit at best, so this was a bit of a surprise.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-low carbonation.
Overall: Heavens, no!

Tall boy can. Pours a hazy golden orange color with white head. Mineral, metallic, spice, yeast aromas. Harsh, metallic, spice, citrus, dough flavors. Really poor beer. Really, really poor wit.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can from Sam’s Quik shop. Pours orange and cloudy with a white head. Looks a bit like Metamucil in the glass which makes me want to take a shit. Not a lot on the nose. If you really focus you canter some orange peel. Finishes clean. I like the style and this comes nowhere close.
