2 finger frothy head with excellent lacing on a cloudy orange with amber and brown hues body. Dark fruit, yeast, some citrus, caramel malts. this one is really bland actually. Flavor is the mosty unidimensional with some herbal and bland barley up front moving to orange peel citrus otherwise nothing else. Light to medium body and moderate to high carbonation. I was expecting a lot from this one and it was very disappointing.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with a long lasting white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of funky yeast, caramel malt and ripe fruit. Body is medium and crisp. Funky yeast, vinous fruit, lemon zest, caramel and earthy hops fill the mouth. Finish is long, earthy and fruity. This brew grows on me with every sip.
