Thanks to Drewbage for this beer.
The beer pours an orange tinged yellow that is not quite clear. The head is nice, big, and fluffy and lasts. This is kind of weird, but I swear I saw a smiley face in the foam after about half a glass. :)
The smell is of orange blossoms, floral and citrus hops. Very pleasant. Reminds me of Essencia dessert wine.
The taste is solid. It is not over the top or in your face. It is a nice beer that slides down smoothly. The orange-tinged hops are apparent and appreciated.
Mouthfeel is smooth and slightly oily. A little acid tinge.
This beer is very drinkable at (only) 6.0% alcohol. Will try to get more somehow.
