2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap. Hazy orange, little head, but it looked like there was some film on the surface. Candylike sweetness. Peppermint, banana. Difficult and annoying aftertaste. I managed to finish but just barely.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had on tap at the brewpub. Poura a light orange, little to no head. Has a bit of a minty aroma,overall pleasant. Flavor has some candied sugar notes with some underlying maple syrup, but it is not too sweet or cloying. Decent mouthfeel. Overall, by far the best of my sesion at Lovejoy’s this evening.
