When I heard that these two breweries had hooked up, I think I raised my hopes too high. This is a fine beer but for some reason blood orange doesn’t translate into beer all that well in comparison to other fruits like oranges and apricots. I was left wishing it was more Belgian-esque and bigger on the fruit.

Sample. Surprisingly enough it’s rating #1. Clear amber with some red highlights. Nice aroma, sweet yeast character with a touch of the oranges coming through. Flavor is mild orange with some light bitterness and a touch of sweet funk. Nice stuff. (2388)
