Really hazy pale yellow color with no foam. Aroma has intense marzipan and almond extract with lemon notes and citrusy hops. Taste follows with almond bitterness and citrus sour candy. Medium body with soft carbonation. Really unique flavors, great balance, dry and fruity.

This one pours a very hazy and creamy looking orange, with a small head and lots of lacing.

This smells like molasses, pineapple, grapefruit mimosas, sweet almonds, lemon candy, lime purée, and sour orange.

This is otherworldly, weird and so tasty. All of the adjuncts shine through equally well, with particular emphasis on pineapple and lime. The molasses and almonds don’t seem like they’d work but they do.

This is creamy and super drinkable, with a very soft mouthfeel.

This is utterly amazing.

4.15/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Opaque yellow-orange with a thin, spotty film and thin bubbly ring.

The smell is all the amaretto sour and maraschino cherry with accents of orange, lime and pineapple.

Taste starts with the pineapple and lime, transitioning to amaretto, almond, and cherry with orange. It's tart and very cocktail-esque, but also very much like candy. I'm conflicted between calling it cherry Sour Patch Kids or Jolly Rancher. It's undeniably attractive despite being ostentatious.

The moderate body has a firm fizz and a semi-dry, tangy tart finish.
