Appearance - 4.4/5
A moderately clear golden orange. A little bit of head retention. Can see LOTS of carbonation rising upward in the beer. I always love that because it makes the beer look alive. If you look close, you can see lots of little tiny particulates floating throughout the beer. Overall, a nice look. I am excited to try this beer.

Smell - 3.25/5
A bready, orange smell. Can't really smell much beyond that. But basically it smells close to an Oberon. Which is not a bad smell, just prefer it to be something different from Oberon which is a ubiquitous summer staple in Michigan.

Taste - 3/5
Again, there is a bready orange taste. The beer is slightly sweet, maybe moderately sweet. There is a faint alcohol taste. Overall, I am not impressed by the taste. It tastes different than an Oberon (most notably is has a breadier taste and less citrus), but didn't really strike me as anything innovative or tasty.

Mouthfeel - 3.5/5
A lot of moderate intensity carbonation is present through the sip, stimulating your tongue. Light to medium in body. Fairly crisp. This beer has an okay feel to it.

Overall - 3.25/5
This beer looked very promising from its appearance, but the this beer was just okay, and probably not one I would want to get again.
