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

draft at the Brewery tap room, served in a shaker pint glass.

appears a cloudy hazy straw color, with bone-white head. starting with the smell, there is no hiding that this beer was brewed with blood oranges. Very pleasant orange aroma.

taste is a nice balance of light malt and the citrus orange flavor. fairly dry finish. thin body and crisp carbonation make it an easy drinker.

overall, a good summer seasonal, definitely thirst quenching.

- brewed with blood oranges. 4.5%

A: Golden pour gradually turns to a tangerine orange with a dense clarity. A dirty white thin spongy-bubbly topping is quick to dissipate. The coloring is real nice, no lace with some visible suspended protein material.

S: Freshly peeled oranges, tangerines, with some distinguishable pink grapefruit. The strength is medium per style quite nice.

T: Im guessing the blood oranges is what i'm mistakening for pink grapefruit. Lightly tart, dry, citrus-grapefruit pulp. Very breakfast like drink, lightly dry and tart finish.

M: Feels like wheat backed, good substance wise, high attenuation, lightly dry and tart with a calming carbonation.

O: Overall very light abv of 4.5% and grapefruit juice like flavor makes this a perfect breakfast drink. The alcohol is very soft if not hardly noticeable. Good flavor, but as a blond, more of an off shoot variety then your typical norm.
