12 oz bottle. The beer is light golden in color with a 3-finger ivory colored head that has a solid composition to it. It is fairly turbid with a massive streaming carbonation apparent. The aroma is spicy orange, light lime zestyness, mild banana ester with a strong but not overpowering wheat backbone to bring all the spices under one dominion. I like the little lime bit that is playing in the background that gives it just a little kick. The flavor is a little strong in the alcohol, as that is the first flavor I get and it seems to mask everything else well in to the finish. A second sip finds some coriander spice and orange with a mild peppery spice that finishes with a mild sweetness and strong wheat maltyness. I still think the initial blast of boozyness takes a little away from it. Mouthfeel is moderate with a moderate carbonation of small bubbles. The finish is very drying on the sides of my tongue. Overall, this one packs a lot of flavor. I don't get much of the honey in either flavor or aroma. This one is nice, but one will do me fine for a while.

Thanks for this one, Derek.
The beer is hazy orange in color with a small white head. Strong aromas of orange peel and coriander come through. It’s decently bready, but also fairly stale. Really not much left to the aroma. The same can be said of the flavor. Stale sugar and bread with a hint of toast. The orange peel and coriander are really the only saving graces to this beer. Sort of lifeless in terms of the mouthfeel as well.
