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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer pours a hazy golden yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of grain and wheat, with a hint of orange thrown in. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of juicy orange notes, as well as a ton of coriander and wheat. This beer tastes like a Belgian witbier on steroids. I like most of what I taste but there is too much coriander in the beer for me to be a huge fan. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
