3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
BOD 11/6/14. Pours a slightly cloudy light amber gold. Below normal head volume and retention, normal lacing.
Outstanding nose of sweet tangerine that has a nice crisp airiness to it over a rich biscuit base.
Light medium body with a smooth texture. Slightly above normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish.
The flavor profile is good, but lacks intensity and comes across as a bit weak. Complexity is slight - it is a weak tangerine over a weak biscuit sweetness. Balance is very good. It begins with weak tangerine over a slight biscuit sweetness that flows into a slightly bitter middle. The finish is a bit crisp and a slight tangerine rind bitterness lingers. Up the flavor intensity and this one becomes outstanding. It’s got all the right components in balance, just not enough of them.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shorty at Yard House - Cincinnati. Pours a hazy orange color with a small off-white head. It smells like an orange wedge has already been squeezed into a Blue Moon. The flavor is basically the same as the nose - wheat, orange, and mild spice. Really zesty. Light-medium bodied, with medium to high carbonation and a sharp, citrusy mouthfeel. Pretty refreshing beer that accomplishes what it sets out to do.

Poured from a 22. Aroma is citrusy, sour, and a bit skunky. Flavor is ChapStick and Pinesol. As the beer warms it grows on you...but still not great. Tastes more skunky than fruity.
