12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Date on the bottle says 10/16/13

A: Pours a cloudy orange with a one finger off white head

S: Very strong tangerine scent and not much else.

T: Follows the nose. With the addition of some slight metallic flavors.

M: Very light and watery mouthfeel. Carbonation is crisp. THere is a faint tartness left on the palette.

O: Its ok I would drink it if it were offered to me, this would make a decent beer for all day drinking.

Cloudy apricot color with a fizzy tall head that set up tightly but wafted away.

The scent is a lot of tangerines with what I perceive is to be apricot.

The flavor is a ton of tangerines with apricot but it's so strong that that it could be thought to be artificial. It's nice but perhaps loses the beer like qualities that it should hold.

The feel is nice with a touch of astringency but easy enough to drink.

I believe this to be a beer that is suited to taste. If you are a fan of beers with strong tangerines and apricot sweetness than this is up your alley.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Orange in colour with a small white head. Head fades quickly, some lace.

The nose is all tangerine, smells like juice. There is a wheat scent as well, but it doesn't blend well.

Taste is like the nose. Almost all tangerine, with some wheat and an odd bitterness. The bitterness is jarring and the tangerine overpowering.

Light bodied, highly carbonated. Irritating.

Overall, not a winner. I would rather just have a tangerine.
