3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverages - 750 ml bottle. Pours a dark murky orange with a sticky, persistent white head. Pleasant fruity aroma with hints of citrus, pears and some floral notes. Flavor is tangy with some yeasty notes, some muted citrus, a bit of alcohol and a buttery back end. Mouthfeel has just the right amount of carbonation. Not bad - but a bit "hot" with the omnipresent alcohol presence.
