3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, blend 2, 10-04-2012. Light hazy orange with a large off white head. High effervescence. Wooden, red berries, barnyard, citrus, light green plant/earthy notes, more spices as it warms up. I notice that I am not good at pinpointing spices. Medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation (perhaps a bit towards being fizzy), medium sweet, light bitter and sour. Very light sour finish. Ok soft and pleasant to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark golden, lush sandy bubbly head fades. Rich five spice, cheap bubblegum sweetness. Thick set mouthfeel, little heel kick of carbonation. Oddly bitter and sweet tangy balance. Finishes oddly mint leaves and lime. Odd!
