look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Tangerine hue with a thin but stead head; it is a gusher; okay lacing

S: This is funky: barnyard musty funkiness with orange peel and other citrus aromas mingling together; this smells so fricking awesome

T: Crisp, funky, musty; the fruit plays so well of the musty barnyard funkiness--not near as cheesy and funky as aromas indicated but awesome

F: Medium body, creamy and lightly carbonated

O: This is a lightly fruity, funky and awesome beer

Enjoyed this while getting ready to get some WWBV!

This is the second time I have enjoyed this brew, first from the bottle, now from the tap. Personally, I think the bottle was more developed, but it was a foam nightmare.

This brew looks like the best orange mimosa you have ever seen. It has a rich orange color, with deep effervescence. The foam lingered through most of the consumption (despite being only 10 minutes:))

Aroma is nice. Mandarin orange, cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, and slight hop scents dominate this brew. I found it to be MUCH more orange from the bottle.

Taste is superb. Just so nice. Anyone out there who is willing to sell their soul for Mimosa should try to snag a bottle of this. Really just nice. Orange, pepper, coriander, and ORANGE dominate this Nice sour component too- well balanced.

Feel is where this beer just doesn't match the bottle- seemed almost watered down.

If i could have bought some bottles, it would have taken about 3 seconds to decide to do so. Great beer. Will seek out again.

Cheers!
