look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 1
a: Creamy white head that is fairly long lasting. Medium gold in color. Hazy
s: Strong wheat and tangerine smell. Earthy undertones. Sweet smell. No hop aroma. The tangerine was intense and not the most pleasant.
t: I'm picking up a good amount of diacetyl. Leaves a bit of puckering in the back on the tongue. The puckering tastes like lemon seeds.
m: Medium light body, low carbonation.
o: Diacetyl doesn't fit into this style, and the puckering taste is unpleasant. Don't like rating this beer so low, but there are some serious flaws with this.
Serving type: bottle
