3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at GABF. Pours a lightly hazed deep gold with a fluffy white head, persistent. On the nose, I get the standard soft white pepper notes and a robust pils malt presence. Lingering soft citrus in the nose as well as grassy hops. On tasting, a bit underwhelming. I anticipated far more citrus than is present. Some soft marshmallow and pepper with a hint of citrus blossom. Okay, but not what I expected.

Draft, Belgianfest. Clear light sparkling golden orange, white head. Very nice, bright sour citrus peel aroma. Light body, dry citrus peel and slightly tropical flavors, earthy and floral finish. This would be a nice summertime beer.

Pours dark golden yellow with a slight white head. Nose is banana, spice, burnt orange, lemon, and slight hops. Taste is funky lemon, burnt orange, strange citrus, and funky hops. Doesn’t blend well...not great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft Capital Hill. Slightly hazy golden orange color with a creamy white head. Nose is very light. Fruit juice, bubblegum, wheat, touch of orange rind. Yuzu juice up front and then into some citrus. Kind of dusty throughout and no flavor really sticks. Drinkable, but nothing to go back to.
