2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 11/8/13
Aroma: The nose is rather sweet, lot of honey, some orange, spice, and wheat
Appearance: It pours a cloudy orange color with a thick froth of white head
Flavor: The taste is sweet as well, with lots of honey and coriander flavors on a wheat base
Palate: The body is medium, it gets a little sticky, and it finishes tingly on the tongue
I found this one to be a little too sweet for my palate, though it certainly isn’t a bad beer. Still though, I can’t really imagine rushing out for one of these again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bonne couche de mousse blanche sur un liquide orangé légèrement trouble aux accents d’orange, de mandarine, de pêches et de blé. Au goût, les oranges sanguines dominent en introduction, suivi par des notes toujours fruitées (agrumes douces) mais aussi céréalées et presque tranchantes, probablement dues dans ce dernier cas aux levures. Petit côté poudreux. Elle est très sucrée, trop en fait pour être réellement désaltérante, et sa finale sèche est un peu émoussée par la pointe crayeuse en conclusion de gorgée. Savoureuse, mais pas vraiment sur les bonnes notes. Elle demeure plutôt agréable, mais loin d’être inoubliable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Randalls Fairview Heights. Lots of globules of sediment were loosened while it was being rolled. The beer is unfiltered golden orange and has a big white fluffy head. I smell cloves and oranges. The blood oranges are tasted first and take it far from a classic hefe. There is also a saison quality with sourness and earth. The hop choice does not work and it has a sourness to it. This one is kind of confused.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy, light amber pour with a tall, chunky, off white head. Lots of floral and citrus in the aroma, a little banana and a decent amount of coriander. Taste starts off with tons of coriander and ascorbic acid, some dusty grain and citrus pop in, but mostly coriander and ascorbic acid. Light body, with a heavy, sharp and very blanketing carbonation. The high carbonation and the fact that it tastes like somebody crushed Vitamin C pills in it make this a little unpleasant to taste, but once you get past the weird tartness it isn’t that awefull.
