3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My Bottom Line:
Caramel apples lightly roasting atop a well-positioned citrusy tartness end up balanced by the earthy hop finish. Yet another very drinkable and carefully crafted Baird fruit beer.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circulates around the orangey copper.
-The daidais citrusy discourse is an able companion the grain bill.
-The body of this Baird fruit beer is just like most of the others: lean, lightly carbonated, and extremely drinkable.
On tap at the brewery tap room.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A bit of a style mystery for me (later found out there is a fruit called Dai dai??). Soft hoppy nose with notes of Cointreau and orange peel. A soft Cointreau mouth, with little bitterness despite the aroma hops and Bairdfs love of bitter in most of his beer. Dry orangey finish. Not bad, but the beer makes much more sense now that I know its a fruit beer.
