i don't like this beer at all. i'm not even going to try to hide it.

L: amber like appearance with a light head.

A: very earthy. not really sure what to describe it as other than just smelling dirt like to a extent.

T: almost soapy. it's such a strange, unpleasant taste with almost no redeeming qualities.

F: again, as it tastes very soapy it feels very strange going down. almost like i'm swallowing a flower because it's so earthy

overall: i don't like it. i grabbed it cause it looked neat and i wanted to try to find a good "orange" beer. this was not it.

Refreshing and light. Citrusy without being overwhelming. A nice light summer beer.

Copper colored with a fingernail of off white around around the rim and covering half of the top. Not a lot of carbonation bubbles and a filtered appearance. The aroma is of pale wheat, honey, and faint orange. I’m tasting pale wheat, honey, and a suggestion of orange. The mouth seems flat and dull.

This beer is definitely one that catches the eye both in and out of bottle. It's smell is quite faint, lightly hinting at honey and wheat/oak.

The taste covers a slightly wheat taste that feels expected, and the slightly golden honey taste is what's mostly impressive about this drink. The orange is mainly present in the aftertaste and it's extremely pleasant.

This beer would be an upper-echelon drink if the smell were to be more prominent, although once it's in your mouth it truly starts to shine. Feels like a solid beer that oozes of potential.

I expected this to be special in some regard, but walked away with mixed feelings...

This brewer has come out with some funky and decent offerings, but this one was a slight disappointment. On the one hand it was very nice to look at with a deep to light orange coloration and light foam, but on the other it had a musty smell and a flavor more akin to resin than the honey taste I was expecting. Overall I did find this more than acceptable and I wouldn't turn one away, but I certainly won't be looking for more of these moving forward...

Pours a clear light orange color with a white head on top. Gives off a watered down grainy smell with a hint of orange. Tastes exactly like how it smells.
