3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Tanakaya. Drank straight from the can. Nice aromas of tea, mandarin along with some stone fruit esters as well. Average to soft carbonation with a medium body. Texture was a little watery, but still worked with the flavors. The tea takes a backseat on the palate to the mandarin and fruit. Nice dry finish. A good summer fruit beer.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can from CBB. Nose is orange, butter, tea, toffee. Sweet diacetyl and orange flavor, toffee, butterscotch. Completely gross. Obviously a problem with this one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - Light caramel malts and a touch of spice. Cloudy orange with a nice beige head. Pale malts, some light orange and not much else. This is a very thin and boring beer regardless of what they put in. After a minute I do get some peach on the pallet, but by then it is unwanted.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can from CBB, looks like the same bad batch as KL. An orange copper pour with no head beyond the first microsecond after pouring. Tangerine and buttery caramel popcorn doesn’t make for an inviting aroma. The taste is sour candied caramel with a tangerine sweetness, some yoghurt and a slick oily mouthfeel. I am guessing this suffered MASSIVELY in transit. Better from the can but no real tea element to it at all. FAIL. My first from Gilgamesh was a waste of money... also my first drain pour from the US in awhile, cloyingly sweet...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned (6.3%) from Trader Joe’s. Highly hazy amber in color. Nose is sweet and fruity. Fruity citric taste up front with a bit of grain. Some tangerine is noticeable. Not your average beer. Drinkable and somewhat refreshing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle. From a gas station in Lincoln City, OR.
Slightly cloudy orange golden colour with a small white head.
Yeast, orange, sweetness, mild bitterness and some spices in the aroma. I'm not sure if I can like this.
No, I can't. The flavour is weird. Orange peel, mild sweetness and spices in the flavour. Strange gimmick beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very strange beer. Sort of like an iced tea. The flavors come across nicely, the oily texture and minimal carbonation however, do not. Juicy and soft.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Really nice tangerines aroma. Pours a clear golden color with what looks like a tint from the tea. Defiantly a restraint on the hops to let the tea show through with the tangerines peel. Pleasant with a nice malt backdrop.

Smooth mouth feel and zesty citrus taste. Not much aroma if any.If you can find it, try it.
