Bright orange with white foam and a little bit of lace around the edges.

Honey and lime zest in the aroma, subdued but really nice.

Taste is nicely tart with some lime juice and honey graham flavors that segue into a dry finish with a hint of dry botanicals. Juicy up front with a pleasant lime tartness, zippy feel. Effervescent and balanced, complex complimentary blend of ingredients. Overall a success, I'd drink more of this anytime.

Deep gold in color with a light haziness. No head is present but carbonation bubbles pop up from within the depths. Aroma is an odd conglomeration of lime and mint. The taste is pleasantly sour lactic acid, lime,and mint along with some light malt. The mouth is heavily carbonated,tart, and yet the mint and lime tingle your tastebuds in an oddly refreshing way. Truly a unique experience. It definitely improves as it warms.
