A- pours with a big foamy white head that has good retention and reduces to a small sudsy layer on top
S- this has the same fruity pebble smell as their Sunset Wheat beer, with just a little bit more emphasis on the orange
T- oranges, tart orange juice with some flowery sweetness. A bit of toasted malt backbone on the finish
M- light body with medium carbonation, foamy and crisp mouthfeel and finish
O- orange juice with a malty finish. It not had and is pretty refreshing but it doesn't really taste like beer. I also find it strange that this is in the fall variety pack, as opposed to spring or summer

Another bizarre concoction from Jake and the crew. Let's give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a nice waft of orange very similar to a tequila sunrise. Pours into the only glass I have handy with a thin but fine bubble creamy head topping a cloudy orange mimosa-like appearance. On the taste the tartness of the orange hits first followed by classic sweeter orange flavor then all followed by a slightly bitter hoppiness that clears out the orange. Unique indeed, for what it is it is spot on. This would be a great brew on a hot day ice cold or good on a cold winter day at room temperature. Do I dare say it may even make a good hot toddy? Maybe have to try it and see. Was hesitant to try this due to bad experiences with lambrics but orange seems to compliment this brew well.
