12oz bottle poured into wine glass.

This pours light apricot, with a thin white head. Like many of the three floyds beers this looks like a IPA and it also has a very IPAish aroma as well. Orange comes across first in the aroma followed by a bready malt that pushes to more of a lager smell. Hints of pineapple and lemon are also there but only hints.

Much like the aroma the taste starts off all citrus. Orange and grapefruit are at the forefront, but again the bready malt comes thru and transforms this into more of lager. It finishes rather dry and bitter and the bitterness hangs on for awhile. This is a session beer if I've ever seen one. Small ABV, light mouthfeel, and very nice thirst quenching ability. This beer doesn't really fit the style it's suppose to fit into, but I think its a great beer by itself. Price could use a little work, being that it doesn't have the same heft that their other $10.99 6packs have. This was much better than I expected.

Purchased a six pack from the brewery. Pours a straw/yellow color, and lots of bubbles can be seen rushing to the surface. The head is short (especially for a 3 Floyds beer). The nose consists of bread, grain, and a touch of fruit, and there's a bit of skunk in there too. The taste begins rather sweet with pronounced grain but finishes heavy on the bread/biscuit flavors. This beer is quite crisp and easy to drink. As I haven't had more than a couple Dortmunder beers, I can't say whether this is really remarkable, but it is refreshing. While I tried it solely because it's a 3 Floyds beer, it's not one that I would seek out again, probably just because I'm not that interested in the style.

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

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a nice chill hazy straw hue with a one and a half finger head that faded to leave some nice creamy side lacing and a fat halo.

S - Aromas of biscuits, lightly sweet malts, faint grassy hops, loads of lager notes.

T - Taste is more of the biscuits, nice fruity floral notes, grassy earthy hops, light citrus, good lager fruit notes too. Quite pleasant and drinkable, good flavours.

M - Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, nice carbonation.

O - Overall this was a treat, quite a well executed Dortmunder!
