Funny enough this looks like the Midas Touch beer I sampled the other night (surely the only similarity, just saying). Golden yellow body with a white finger of a head that all but settles to nothing.
Smells unique to me. Peaches, pear, citrusy. Tart to the nose for sure, but also a sourness i dont care for.
Upon taste I'm greeted with the orange tart but it's the other rustic grainy notes that my pallet's not quite agreeing with. Musty, biscuity, tangy, lemon-grassy but on the bland side.
The more i sipped this i realized that im not liking is the lemongrass taste which i believe is a result of the orange rind playing its role. Harsh. If that flavoring took more of a backseat it seems this would be easier to drink.

3.55/5 rDev -2.7%
On tap at Boneyard Bistro in Sherman Oaks, CA.
Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, spices, floral notes, and alcohol. Taste is much the same with a slightly tart flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice and floral bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is drinkable but has a better smell in my opinion.
