4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: cloudy light orange with lots of lacing.
Nose: Spice, mandarin oranges, hoppiness, and sugary sweetness
Taste: Bitter with lots of orange flavor. Itís seriously a mandarin orange that finishes with slight peppercorn and bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with sharpness from the carbonation. super sticky.
Overall: Iím not 100% sure but Iím getting such a mandarin orange flavor and bitter finish that Iíd like to be slightly more malt forward but thatís me being overly picky. Iím guessing this is blue dot.
Solid 94 because of how awesome the hops and yeast shine through.

Bottle from Whole Foods.
Nose of caramelized bananas, citrus. Tripel-like flavors, full esters that seem a bit overwhelming in the first few sips but mellow as the palate acclimates. Spicy peppery close. Pretty good tripel-like beer at only 6.3%.
