3.64/5  rDev +17.8%

Appearance (4.25) : A hazy, richly opaque pineapple-orange colored body. Almost 100% opacity. Impressive. The head is a tightly woven three fingered creamy, creamy head with thick licks of lacing remaining, as it recedes at a slow pace.

Aroma (3.25) : This is basically what I'd smell if I mixed orange juice and beer. Very orange-y, but with a slight malt skunk behind it. The malt and grains are definitely present, but are a bit odious. Some whiffs of lemon come out too as the head recedes. I don't know if I can attribute that to hops or just added citrus rinds in the vat.

Taste (3.25) : Smooth, mildly offensive, but overall easily drinkable. It's got malt character up front, mixed with orange flesh. Halfway through, the frothy orange juice sets in and makes its presence known as it exits the back of your throat. What ultimately ruins the taste is the presence of the malty skunk. It's faint, but it's there.

Mouthfeel (4) : Like a whipped, frothy orange julius. I think the mouthfeel is the best part of this beer. It's creamy, very accessible, and easy to drink. I'd have this one on a hot day, no problem.

Overall (3.64) : Much better than their Summer Shandy. All in all it's a capable beer and worthy of a try. I wouldn't have a problem grabbing more of these for a hot day in the sun or in the shade.
