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.

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.
