A - 4.0 - Orangey gold, a finger of attractive light tan head that sticks around for a while and leaves behind nice rings of lacing like a striped sweater. Nice.
S - 4.0 - A really nice fresh floral-honey combo wrapped up in soft orange and pine notes. Very nice.
T - 3.5 - Low-mid bitterness level of the pine variety that lasts on the palate for a good while after swallowing. A slightly vegetal note in with the floury malt. Interesting to see someone here say the same thing. I feel like that note is on the edge between something that tastes weird and something that gives interesting character. Normally I'd give a 3.5 to something that was better than average, nothing wrong with it, but not notably good. This one gets a 3.5 because parts of it are notably good and parts detract.
M - 4.0 - Medium bodied. There's something happening in here that I wouldn't quite call dryness, but it's almost a powder sensation, sort of like cocoa but without any cocoa flavor. Maybe more like flour. I haven't experienced this before. It's interesting.
O - 4.0 - This brewery is kind of uneven. They've got some unremarkable middle of the road beers, some kind of amateur tasting beers, and some pretty good ones. This falls in the latter category. I particularly like the aroma, which is just delicious.

This had tons of life with loads of bubbly carbonation but the color seemed a tad light. The color was somewhere between a yellow and an orange but relatively clear.
The aromas were strong on the onion, earthy, humid forest type but then turned fruity with grapefruit and orange rind. Very interesting.
The flavor seemed less diverse with a floral start and an orange rind finish. The finish is quite bitter with a harsh and astringent feel.
It's always tricky to review beers that seem to be well received but your experience is not up to that standard. I'll have to try it again in hopes I find it better.
