Poured out of a short brown bottle into a Boulevard Smokestack chalice/goblet.
Appearance - A deep, ruddy orange color with elements of apricot. Near the bottom of the glass, there is a hint of maize color and small particles of sediment. The head is thick, and creamy and looks like freshly fallen snow. It sits there, 1.5 fingers thick, for at least five minutes.
Aroma - Incredibly enticing. Citrus and orange zest up front that merges into more of a faint floral with elements of yeasty funk on the end. Distinct, but not powerful.
Taste - As expected, the taste is much drier than the aroma lets on. It's dry, but has notes of dried fruit, with a center of hop bitterness coming through. As the taste fades, the funk that was present in the smell shows up, but faintly.
Mouthfeel - The luscious head on this beer makes you feel like you're drinking a beer milkshake, in a good way. It's got a filling, but airy feel once inside your mouth, as even the act of the liquid moving around in your mouth generates more foamy bubbles.
Overall a fantastic representation of the style, and a deceptive 8% ABV, given how easy it is to drink.

Pours a clear golden color with a half finger of head that dissipated quickly. This is a malt forward offering, but it is relatively light-bodied considering the ABV. The taste is ever so slightly sweet upfront with a dry, mildly hoppy finish. This is one of the most well-balanced beers that I have had the pleasure of sampling.
