3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Served a hazed, medium copper-hued body (at least in the subtle afternoon lighting of the restaurant), with a ivory-colored head.
Smell: Fruity, floral, with a juicy bubblegum scent ale Juicy Fruit with a backing of perfumy orange peel.
Taste: A bit sugary initially, with those tropical juices giving a taste of Juicy Fruit chewing gum, though the bitter orange peel, light spice, and alcohol help to cut through those sugars in lieu of hops and bitterness. Still, it ends sweetish on the finish as well as a bit warming and with a lingering hint of orange.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Light carbonation.
Overall: I’m always left wanting one notch more body to these beers and two notches more carbonation. Every time, really.
