2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Iron Horse. Very cloudy light orange pour with minuscule white head formation. Little lace. Fresher peach ice cream nose. Some peaches and cream character taken over by vanilla scented candle. Taste is soapy, buttery, blander with some soap cutting mild sweet butter and mild diacetyl. Big spice adjunct hides basic brewing flaws. Palate is thickish for style from the butter. Eh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Churchkey. Served in a tumbled.
Pour is a cloudy light orange color with a pretty decent amount of haze. White head with some pretty sticky lacing. Overall, a good start. Nose is creamy and full of rich wheat plus some orange zest, coriander, and slight spice. Nice and well-rounded without any taking the front.
Taste is equally as good as the nose. Very pleasant wheat base with a touch of spice along with some nice citrus character. The mouthfeel really takes it away. Light body is enhanced by a nice wheat base and there is a touch of spice throughou along with a nice orange presence. Fairly light carbonation carries it through. Drinkabiliy is really nice. This is quite quaffable even after a 15-minute walk through the cold.
Very glad to add the first beer for this place. It’s a good feeling to finally have a local brewery that’s actually in my town.
Serving type: on-tap
