12oz can. Pours a hazy pale orange with an inch of head. Lots of lacing. The aroma is a blend of citrus and berries. Some sweet, fruity candy as well. The taste is a blend of orange, peach, lime, pineapple and some berries. Orange Julius flavor towards the end with a hint of herbal hops. Creamy with a slightly dry mouthfeel. Fair amount of alcohol heat.

Thanks to Brutalfarce for this one. 12oz can poured into 14oz teku. Poured a solid, turbid, murky orange color, with about 3/4 inch of white head that had moderate retention and almost no lacing.

The aroma was very, very muted. No grain/malt, very light juice, and a bit of a musty funk. On the tongue, things started out the same, but the fruit got a bit more noticeable, that mustiness wasn't as present, and there was a touch of bite at the back end.

The body was completely average for the style, light of medium, with no lingering hints of existence. It did have a semi-dry finish though. Drinkability was as I've come to expect, easy enough, but with no memorability. When you can't remember if you just had a sip, or were going to have a sip, well, whats that say about the beer? Overall, another average-ish take on the style.
