650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy bright orange body. Nice white head. Chunky thick collar.

Smell - Doesn't smell the way I expected it to. It's very tropical, but has a must or mineral aroma too. Kinda detracts. Doesn't smell that sweet.

Taste - Much more dynamic. Orange, some piney hops, lots of tropical fruit. Grainy and a little bitter in the back end.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, maybe pushing medium heavy. Creamy carbonation texture.

Overall - Wasn't enthused at first, but this really grew on me. Very tasty.
