3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Bevmo. I don’t know why but these bottles seem to explode when I open them and only from Bevmo did this happen. Cloudy orangish blonde color with a huge thick fluffy pillowed head that just won’t retreat. Aroma is pleasant and welcoming with a perfect balance of floral hops and a grainy malt background. The flavor is rich with a sweet honey like taste as well as a hearty serving of grained wheat which I truly enjoyed and see how this could make for a session style beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is sweet malts, orange, slight Belgian-esque twang. Pours orange, with a thick white head. Flavour is sweet, with some caramel like malts and light disguised wood. Skunky hops mixed with orange marmalade. Bitterness is moderate and doesn’t last very long, being replaced by some wood. It’s pretty good but not sure if I’d like it more a bit lighter and drier.
