3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale clear orange with a slight pinkish hue, holding on to a thin white head. Up front funky nose followed by grains and confectionary surgars. Taste starts with some barnyard flavors up front that turns to sweet oranges, and then it gets too sweet. Alcohol is well hidden, but has some burn in the finish. Very tasty, but unbalanced. Needs to be dryer.

On tap: The aroma consists of citrus, lemon, orange peel, and light floral notes. It’s a transparent gold with a small white head that leaves a thin sheet of lacing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with citrus, honey, and a hint of bubblegum. The finish has orange peel and light floral notes. It’s light-medium bodied with somewhat carbonation and mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly unclear orange with medium white head that subside pretty quickly. Smell is funky, orange citrus and some spice perhaps . The taste is initially sweet orange, and then leads to some funky fruity yeast that never overpowers, but there is a muddled finish that last. The alcohol actually pokes out as well. As the beer goes on I went from liking a good bit to it just being ok.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma’s a little rubbery at first, to be honest, moving into more bubble gum and a little biscuit and candy citrus, perfume. Flavor is heavy on orange peel, herbal flavor, touch of green apple and bits of bubble gum, hinting at a few shades "darker" flavors like caramel and grape. Pretty enjoyable.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pint on tap. Clear-ish, medium-yellow color, no head or lacing. Mild aroma, citrus-y grapefruit and peach nectar. Taste is an awesome blend of traditional ale and something sweeter. Floral-herbal notes with a measured amount of sweetness, dry too. Citrus-y but not sour. Great mouthfeel and linger. I wish I had had some cheese to pair with it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with white head. Aroma has some nice funky notes, a little herbal, grassy, notes of ripe grapefruit. Flavor is much the same, off-dry with a light tartness. Light to medium body with fizzy carbonation. Overall, pretty tasty.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
22 oz bottle. Pours clear straw gold with a small creamy white head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.
The aroma is musty stinky, almost rotting, oranges with a little bready malt.
The flavor is sweet oranges and musty yeast with a kind of dry and lightly bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall, kind of odd - sweet musty oranges with a dry bitter, kind of off finish.
