22oz bottle poured into tulip - thanks to poniell
Pours a fairly clear orange color with some brighter golden tones. A thinner white head fades out almost completely, a few spots of lacing on the glass.
Plenty of juicy citrus on the nose with orange, nectarine, and pulp. Sweeter honey tones with floral notes and a kiss of caramel.
Decent amount of sweetness on the tongue driven by oranges and other citrus fruits. Not much of a hop presence, more sweetness with honey, sugar, and some slight floral notes. Lighter malt base with faint caramel. Finishes with fruit juice and sweetness.
Lighter medium body, mild carbonation, sticky and light on the tongue. The orange flavors were nice but this was too sweet for me - my girlfriend enjoyed it more than I did.

This beer was poured into a standard pint glass from a 22 recently purchased from Alpine. I am confident this brew is fairly fresh.
A - The head appears standard white, with medium bubble density and thickness. The body is clear and golden in color. The appearance is nice and clean.
S - The smell is light, citrusy, and sweet.
T - The taste is also light, citrusy, and bright. There is sweetness throughout and tanginess at the backend.
M - The mouthfeel is easy, airy, and clean.
O - This is a nice summer beer for those hot, sunny days, when you need something that will not hold you down. This beer is nicely spiced and easy to drink. My wife and her girlfriend really enjoyed this brew during the afternoon. Simple drinking here...
