UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 A: Hazy orange/straw/copperish body. Thin off white head. Little lacing remains behind.
S: Wheat. Moderate maltiness in the form of caramel and roasted tones. Slight citrus/floral hop character.
M: Much of the same. Caramel malts and floral hops. Slight spice hints. Slightly funky.
M: Medium body. Thin is spots. Alcohol is dominant in others. Decent finish.
O: A miss from PBC here. Nothing really keeps the tongues attention and the ABV is a bit to hight to warrant a second glass in a sitting.

Golden color with a big burnt sugar and citrus/candy aroma. Flavor is of burnt orange and candies from Halloween that you didn’t really want. WTF?! This pretty much makes a wheatwine look like Mad Dog 20/20.
