No freshness dating on this 1 pint 6 oz. brown bottle poured into a Nonic pint glass.
Appearance: light honey colored body, almost copper with minimal off-white head, which lasts only seconds. The clarity of the initial pour is followed by a cloudy sediment laden second pour. Lacing is almost unknown.
Smell: orange kool-aid is the first impression with slight lemony citrus scents. Mild sweetness of oranges, tangerines and a slight twang of wheat malt.
Taste: the flavors of lighter side wheat take a backseat to a cheap orange kool-aid flavoring. The flavors get better after the second pour which allows the yeast and more flavors to enter the glass. The tangerine flavors are slightly subdued by the yeast additions.
Mouthfeel: on the lighter side of medium. A slight twang of citrus peel. Carbonation is gentle and rarely seen.
Drinkability: I really want to like this beer with its tangerine and wheat profile, but the fruit flavors seem cheap. More wheat malt and a REAL tangerine addition, even at a lesser degree, would improve this beer.
