Pours a hazy dark straw with 1/2" fizzy head that retreated quickly. Barely noticeable lacing that quickly fell back into the beer.
Smells mostly of clove.
Taste is a clusterfuck at first--clove, citrus, yeast, spices, maybe a touch of biscuity something at the end. About halfway through the aftertaste turned a bit sour/soapy. As it warmed up I thought at first it was tasting better, then I realized it was just weaker and less spazzmatic. The clove wasn't expected and not really welcomed.
Tingly on the tongue, zesty in the mouth.
Overall this was a bit of a letdown for me. Maybe my expectations were off. The beginning was disjointed, the middle 1/3 of the glass was not quite good, the end was weak and disappointing. Might try it again in a pinch or maybe 3 years from now when I can't remember my disappointment anymore.

A: Golden, slightly yellow color; huge head!
S: Powerfully sweet, citrus/orange scent
T: Very light; Obvious low ABV; Extremely orange-y but the aftertaste isn't amazing
M: Soft bite which fades; nothing exceptional
Though pouring this gorgeous beverage looks incredibly promising, the taste and feel seem too light to leave an impression. The orange is almost overwhelming. The first kick is light but great, and the aftertaste is greater. It's all the steps in the middle that make this drink lackluster.

Hazy blonde color. Small head resting.
Rough spicing, coriander, orange peel, hints of sage, lemon rind, and tangy wheat.
Soft wheat, citrus peel, lemon, coriander, yeast esters, and faint green apple.
Deliciously light and easy. Carbonated moderately. Nice.
