TAp @ O'Briens. Poured clear orange-yellow with a short-lived white head. Good lacing, though. Lively citrus aroma dominated by grapefruit and tangerine. More sweet than sour. Slick, carbonated mouthfeel with a crisp finish. Pleasant hop profile with a nice blalance of bitterness versus the citrus sweet. Nice malt backbone without becoming sticky. Very drinkable and very refreshing. Nice surprise from these guys.
Serving type: on-tap

Appearance: Hazy medium golden in color, with a modest white head, which soon collapses to scattered patches of foam. Thin lacing coats the glass walls.
Aroma: Caramel notes are accompanied by pine hops.
Taste: Opens with caramel malt and aggressive pine hops. AS the taste progresses, the caramel malt shines through a bit, offering some balance to the fairly intense hops. Finishes with a wave of pine tar hops and a little sweet malt.
Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, fairly pleasant.
Drinkability/notes: A decent example of the style, I wonder why Widmer Brothers stopped brewing it?
Presentation: Packaged in a custom twelve-ounce brown glass long-neck bottle, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
Serving type: bottle
