Look: Bad buddha pours a clear toffee color with a thin off-white head.

Smell: The aroma is a subtle combination of citrus and, in the best possible way, medicine.

Taste: The front end is a rich cirtus rind, and the back end is a well rounded candy flavor.

Feel: Bad buddha has a medium mouthfeel, appropriate for the flavor and style.

Overall: Another great beer from Avery.

Nice apricot color and the citrus aroma is delightfully striking! A bright and lively flavor that is wonderfully balanced. I wish they bottled this!
