Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a medium small foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of tart notes with light cereal notes also perceptible. Taste is also dominated by quite a bit of tart notes with some light spicy rye notes that are also perceptible. Body is quite full with medium carbonation. Not bad but a lot more sour then expected which makes it hard to distinguish some of the rye malt.

Muled from San Antonio for me by my buddy Will (Canadianghetto). Thanks Will! Poured from 22oz bomber into my Brooklyn tulip. Pours a pretty cloudy golden orange color. Not much head, no real retention to speak of. Decent appearance. Smell- juicy orange peel, some candied sugar, clove, banana. Clove and fruit are dominant. Taste- a lot drier than I expected, but a nice creamy mouthfeel. I get big clove, vanilla, dreamcicle (all I could really think of to describe the play between the creaminess and the orange/fruit play. What is not here that I was expecting was a big sweet backbone. But, it actually lends itself to making this easier to drink- I will have no problem taking this down. I also get some cinnamon on the end, back of the throat. Overall, this is an enjoyable beer, I am always happy to enjoy Freetail brews.

On tap at the brewpub.
The beer pours a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of orange citrus and coriander notes, as well as a good deal of wheat. The flavor is similar. I get a ton of juicy orange notes as well as some coriander and white pepper. There is also a strong wheat and biscuit malt note, as well as some noticeable alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
