growler pour. deep golden. tart with light peach and a hint of tequila. perhaps more interesting than good, but definitely drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Churchkey in D.C.
The beer is light orange hued, with a thin, but lasting head that leaves a fair amount of lacing on the snifter. The aroma brings peach and agave - surprise! I really enjoyed the flavor of this beer. Nice and light with crisp carbonation. Interesting and intriguing flavor, yet drinkable (not a guarantee from Short’s). The wheat comes through nicely, making this an appropriate choice for the hot season (I really enjoy wheat beers in warm weather). The body is a bit on the thin side. Overall, a decent brew. I would have it again.
Serving type: on-tap

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sweet peach and agave nose. Taste is slightly sweet, some peach and grainy malt, slightly oxidized. Not worth trying.

Draft at brewery. Pours a golden color. The aroma is a strong wheat and malt mix. The taste is pleasant. Nothing crazy but a good drinking wheat beer. Not tons of peach flavor though.

Can’t say this is one of my favorite pours at Short’s...very astringent with little peach/agave/wheat flavor. Probably need to re-taste this on its own, but still the 1st impression was not a good one...

Draft at Short’s. Hazy medium orange-brown body, thin off-white head. Light grassy nose with slight tartness. Grassy, nutty body, sweet and tart with fruit juice and a crackery finish. Agave is subtle. Light and refreshing.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
4oz pour at Churchkey. Pours a hazy, bright orange with zero head. Nose is fruit salad, peaches, flowers, honey. Flavor is really gross, buttery, garbage, over ripened fruit, wet fruit peels, leaves, light citrus. Medium bodied, trashy finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Churchkey for Shorts Tap Takeover. The pour is a hazy light orange with a scant white head. Nose is cantaloupe and honeydew melon. As it warms and opens up, red apple skins and prominent acetaldehyde come through. Taste is pretty classic diacetyl with unpopped buttered movie popcorn. A great example of two common brewing flaws.
