16 ounce can, canned on 01 DEC 2020. Got this one from a friend last weekend so didn't have a chance to try it much fresher. Served in a DFH Spiegelau IPA glass, the beer pours a hazy pale gold color with about an inch and a half white head that stayed around a really long time. Lots of lacing. The brew smells like lemon peel, melon, peach, grapefruit and tropical fruit. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some orange peel, pineapple, bready malt and grassiness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's slick and a bit creamy with a moderate amount of carbonation. Smooth and easy to drink. I liked this brew, but hopefully I'll get to try it fresher at some point. This is the first Burial brew I've had, and I definitely want to try more now!

Unreadable canning date, but about five weeks old per Burial Instagram.

L: Pours a very hazy orange/yellow, with a big fluffy white head that thins quickly but remains on top. Nice splotchy lacing.

S: Orange, peach, mango. Not strong but it's there. Also a bit of dankness.

T: More orange, citrus, and tropical fruits. Just a touch of bitter orange rind at the end.

F: Extremely smooth mouthfeel. Not a fan of lactose, but this is fine.

O: Very well done. Great balance of juicy and dank.

Pours cloudy gold-orange-tan color with a 1 finger off-white head that faded on average to quickly, leaving minimal spotty lacing. It started out good but turned real basic. Aroma is quite fruity with tangerine, orange peel, pineapple, melon, peach, faint grapefruit and a dash of caramel on the back end. Not much in the way of malt, but really nice citrus complexities. The taste is just like the nose but with gummy bears, Razzles, apricot, graham cracker, light brown sugar, caramel, mild floral hops and peppery spices, and the Belgian-like flavors that include green apples and dry chalky yeast. Very smooth and easy to drink, it's session worthy.

Solid NEIPA. For NC, this is on par with Heists citraquench’l and very similar. FG on this guy feels like it’s in the upper 1.020’s so it tastes on the sweeter side which is fitting for the style. Looks like straight orange juice and tastes and smells like tropical fruit smoothie. Well done burial! Hats off. Keep doing this

Foggy pale orange with a small foamy head. Smells similar to Ceremonial in some ways (maybe it's the yeast)...pulpy OJ, pineapple rings, peach skin, leafy herbs, and a light dry pine resin note. Tropical fruit flavors with a lingering oily hop resin quality. Zesty grapefruit peel, melon, pineapple, mango, apricot, and pleasant yeast esters. Fluffy, dry feel drinks pretty easy. Pretty tasty - definitely has that Burial house character.
