Strong smell of orange and tangerine. Fair amount of carbonation. Quite like an Orangina, but not that sweet. I like it well enough now in 20 degree weather with a blizzard bearing down, but it seems like a perfect match for spring and summer, baseball, hot dogs and freshly mowed grass.

Pours a burnished orange colour, little bit of fuzz in the glass. Head is a decent colour, off-white but sunken to a little film. Nice cradle of lace left behind, though. Decent, not wonderful.

Smell is a little off. Quite metallic but with a nice softer fruity hop note behind. Quite distinct pineapple, with a touch of guava and citrus as well. Fairly tangy but a bit subdued under the metallic influence.

Taste is very fruity indeed. Big tropical flavour announces itself in its supple, juice form early - pineapple, mango and guava on there, goes from sweet upfront to tangy, then fizzles out a bit early and quite dry, without a huge amount of finish. Slight fruit juice lingers actually, and makes me feel it could use some bitterness to carry the finish across the line.

Little bit thin, but nice texture as it goes through, slightly bitty and slightly fizzy. Good.

Could use more balance in the flavour. Tangy and drinkable but needs more depth.

It pours in a bit of a hazy orange. There’s an aroma of slight honey and a bit of citrus with sweet malt.

There’s a delicious good fruity hop in the front. There’s a malt flavor in the middle. It’s a sweet beer and really flavorful at 5% ABV. It’s extremely drinkable. It ends a bit fast, but it has a good amount of complexity and maltiness that I love.

One of the best “sessionable” American beers out there.
