3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at the brewery (which, although the tasting room is a tent in a parking lot, is worth a visit). Pour is orange brown, medium carbonation. Nose is bready, touch of caramel. Taste is fruity and bitter, bread crust, orange. Pleasantly chewy mouthfeel. Pretty true to style. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at some random kegger in Oakland. Nice beer, it’s got some hearty grains and some good orangey hoppiness. Tastes like it might have rye in it, that sort of tart chewiness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy orange-golden with a soapy white head. Asymmetrical lacing around the edges as the head dissipates. Some green grape and unripe banana. Medium to full bodied mouthfeel with very little carbonation. Clean flavor with some tart fruit that gets accentuated by the hop character at the finish.
