3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home split with Sarah, picked up a GBBF 2014. Golden orange coloured pour, mostly clear, with a lasting sticky loose white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts, with some grassy cascade hops, light pine needles. Flavour is composed of nutty, light caramel base malts with nice wet grass and berry fruits. Nicely balanced malts and hops. Palate is semi sweet and moderate carbonation. Very drinkable. Could see myself drinking a few pints of this. Lingering grassy and lemon hop with a little caramel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted on 10/27/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at the grocery store. Pours hazy dark orange with a thick beige head that slowly recedes to average, rocky lace. The nose is fairly fresh grassy, lightly herbal hops, with a bit of brown sugar bread malt. The flavor is a bit more herbal with a bit more malt that comes through sweeter than expected based on the nose. The body is medium with average, stinging carbonation and a medium malty, lightly herbal finish.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Nose dough and pine, lightly spicy, my second straight from Widmer that takes the Lagunitas tack [unfortunately, neither pulled it off]. Pours lightly gradient orange with slight carbonation and a sudsy beige head. Taste lightly sweet, light body and only lightly effervescent, still weighed down by minor alcohol. Toffee and earth, little lining of toast here and there, but otherwise the malt is simple and weak. Mildly soapy, no astringency or tannin problems, light herbal and woodsy swipes but no more direct pine or caramel (and pretty minimal citrus, too). The blandification continues.

Di colore ambrato scarico o ramato, ha una schiuma un po' grossolana, biancastra, dalla discreta persistenza. al naso marmellata d'arancio, caramello, scorza d'arancio e qualche sentore vegetale. Il gusto è intenso, biscotto, caramello, marmellata d'arancia anziché pompelmo fresco ed un crescendo amaro con qualche nota di resina e di pepe. Discreta beverinità.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a thin beige head of foam. The aroma has dry, old floral notes with some caramel and cardboard as well. The taste is sweet, but oxidation is too strong. Medium carbonation and body.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lovely dark golden brown colour, just a wisp of a white head; enticing peachy orange aroma; tastes fairly straightforward: orange, bitter, dry finish; simple, but not excessively harsh; nicely balanced and a pleasant drink.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to cheap. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Hop aromas have dropped off greatly but there is some earthly hop aroma left. Backbone beer is decent though. Light caramel sweetness. Light bitterness.
