look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Served from a small bottle into a fluted British pint glass.

Appears rather hazy with a blend of rust and ruby with mostly orange browns. A tiny head rests on top.

Smells a bit of citrus with more cumquat flowing through. Wondering if its taste will shine through on the lighter side.

Tastes as the smell was described with some wangy overripe citrus in there from the yeast.

Mouthfeel is a bit dusty from a slight hop bitter. There's some dull fruit resonance too.

Overall it didn't rock my world. I wish the flavors were a little more sweet, subtle, and less musty.
