3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ The Kernel. Very hazy light orange color, classic attractive Kernel head. The nose is wonderfully fruity and pleasant. Loads of pineapple, bright citrus, cut grass, dirt. Great. The taste is moderately sweet, bright. Mild bitter finish. Medium body. Overall, the nose on this beer really is fantastic, memorable. It tastes good too.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On keg at The Kernel brewery. Cloudy orange with a white bubbly head. Nose is an earthy, minerally, citrous hit with orange citrous and underneath all that some softer tropical notes. Taste is sharp piney, resiny, minerally with orange citrous. Minerally bitter with a bit of menthol/eucalyptus on the finish. It’s fairly hard and I prefer more fruit character in these.
