Served in a Troubelette glass because it is the only glass from this brewery I have. Beer is orange with a mild haze, white head, thin, low retention, moderate carbonation, no lacing.

Aroma is like orange candy, sticky sweet, citrus.

Beer is medium in body, very sweet, decent finish, not too dry, overall nice. I don't hate it but I don't love it, probably too sweet, not enough yeast or hops and I'm confused about the orange sweetness. I might have it again.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a light orange/yellow color with a white head. The aroma is unmistakable and unexpected. The beer smells a whole lot like Fruity Pebbles. The other aroma components are some grassy hops. Overall, the beer smells very sweet.

The flavor is very fruity, with various mixed fruit notes including lemons, apples and orange. I also get some grassy hop notes and some wheat. There is a little bit of spiciness.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very interesting beer, glad I got to try it.

S: Aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon, background of citrus.
T: Flavor has yeast/bread, light spices and orange peel.
M: A bit thinner that expected for this style of beer.
D: Not a bad winter beer, but pales in comparison to its peers.
