2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
16oz Can. Thanks Sean! Aroma has a mingling of soaps and spices, lavender and orange peel. Flavors are a little tough out of the gate, there’s a sharp bitterness in the finish and a bit of oxidation up front. It smooths out and reveals a strong juicy hop flavor component, which is nice, but out of place. Not my favorite style, but not the worst rendition ever. Excited to try a new Michigan brewery with some pretty cool packaging.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz can purchased last month for $1.99 at Siciliano’s (MI). Poured into a Belgian snifter. Attractive can with a clever name.
The beer poured an orange-amber color; hazy with a small, weak head that soon reduced to a thin partial top coat and a ring, but continued to leave decent lacing.
Aroma: spicy and yeasty Witbier; a bit funky and fairly fruity but not much banana.
Taste: carries over the traits of the aroma, but a nice dry tartness is the dominant quality. Well chosen light amount of spices with a citrus, wheat and malt base.
Feel: Smooth, dry finish; light-medium body; medium+ carbonation.
Overall: Nicely tart.
