Pours a hazy golden, lighter than some counterparts. Aroma of orange and mango. It tastes like freshly squeezed orange juice, you know the kind without that store bought acidity. It doesn't have pungent flavor, but it's quite good. Soft mouthfeel, extremely quaffable. A very nice pale from Fiddlehead.

The appearance was a pale dark pear skin color with a fingers worth of cream colored head. Some messy lace. The aroma had some strong bready crisp malts flowing over some fruity punchy bitter hops. The flavor had some sweetness coming across in the fruity hops. Some sweet oats/grains and then red grapes. Aftertaste was reminiscent of grape juice with sweet wheat or oats. Finish was super drying. The palate was between light and medium bodied with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt appropriate. Overall, its alright, not exactly sure what Fiddlehead was going for with this, but hey, it might be better with some food.
