3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours hazy dark orange with a lasting thick creamy off-white and very lacing head. Aroma is mango, citrus, spruce, grapes, and crystal malts. Taste is moderate sweet and bitter. Body is medium, texture is creamy and perhaps a little slick, carbonation is medium. Finishes hoppy aromatic. This is the best looking beer I’ve had for quite a while and it tastes really great too. I do however prefer the regular/summer edition over this one.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
aroma is sweet fruit. maybe some hoppy sort of bite to it. appearance orange with a very long lasting head. taste is a balance of hops and malts, light sweetness medium bitter. fresh piney hops linger in the aftertaste. Palate on this is perfect for drinkability, the finish is long, but light enough not to hamper ur drinking pace, body is light, medium carbonation.

T: not as good as the previous version, but still a solid example of the style.
