750ml bottle from Tangfoot.

Holycow I've been waiting to try this one...

Reddish-amber colored, with plenty of egg-shell head...tightly packed tinytiny bubbles. Not much lacing on the glass, but the color is spectacular when held up to the light.

The nose is light fruit notes and some fresh herbal-ness.

The taste is outstanding. The orange peel is definitely there, along with other fruit notes: apricot, peach, raisin...sweet maltiness underlies the whole thing. There's a lot going on here, and all of it is really freaking good.

Mouthfeel is spot on perfect. Nice zing of crispy carbonation up front, into a rich, smooth and chewy middle. Finish is lingering, with a hint of bitterness at the very tail end, leaving you wanting more. Is there alcohol in here?

Need to find a way to get this more consistently in California!
