Poured from the bottle into a standard pint glass.
A- A hazy, light orange color that came out of the bottle resembling a light orange Kool-aid. Head quickly dissipated and left almost no lacing.
S- This smells very fun; a little bready and a lot sweet citrus, almost like some cheap, sugary orange drink.
T- Not as sweet as I was expecting from the nose. First sip was very acidic, but after my palate acclimated it was not overwhelming. Some biscuity malt taste in the middle, then stays on the tongue very citrusy, almost just like straight OJ.
MF- Thinner than I was expecting from the syrup-like pour. Feels thin and tingles with acid just slightly.
Overall, this is a fun beer for a warm day, but the acidity could be too much for me to session more than one or two. This could be a nice pallet cleanser in the middle of a session, though.
