3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. 2015. Murky dark orange. Scattered lacing and lingering bit of head. Smells like grapefruit, orange. Super full body. Tastes like Donald Duck orange juice (in a good way).

12oz bottle...some crazy a$$ $hit here...a symbiosis of wheat, orange, hops, and green peppercorns with all of them assertive yet co-mingling in harmony. This is a decidedly different wheat wine. Refreshingly easy to drink, it finishes with a surprisingly bitter-tart finish. Way good.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. Pours orange with almost no head. Aroma is of oranges, pepper, and wheat. Taste is big on acidic blood orange with a very peppery finish. After a few sips, you get even more orange. Finish very dry and peppery. The peppery, acidic taste makes it hard to really enjoy. Not my thing.

Bottle. Pours a very lightly hazy, brilliant golden orange with a quickly dissipating head. Aromas of oranges, bubblegum, yeast, spice, alcohol -- smell is an interesting mix between fruit wine and ale yeast. Complex and interesting taste, as well. Citrus, orange, peppery/spicy, "bubblegum" yeast, alcohol. Moderately bitter. The alcohol is definitely apparent. Lightly peppery finish. Definitely a sipper. Really an interesting beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from trade. Pours hazy orange with little to no head. Aroma is a nice punch of blood orange. Really vibrant citrus notes here. Also getting a Hawaiian Punch vibe. Taste is soft, velvety with little carbonation. Blood orange again features nicely here with some barleywine traits coming through. Syrupy. Not getting a lot of the peppercorns though there is some faint spiciness in the background.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Heck yes, awesome gift. Pours a hazy orange golden with a thinner eggshell head that settles to a ring and leaves some spotty lace. Nose is a blast of citrus like fresh-squeezed juice, sweet orange, tart grapefruit, some zesty spice and florals, sweet nectar, some underlying coconut. Fairly sweet, somewhat tart, quite bitter. Medium to full bodied, oily, softer carb, with a drying toasty yet tart and bitter finish accentuated by some alcohol warmth. A really cool brew, drinks more like a DIPA than a barleywine. It’s not thick or hefty, definitely more juicy, oily, and zesty.
