4 Mile Brewing Co. Tangerine Dream Ale Fruit / Vegetable Beer at 4.25% ABV (C$6.49 at Quarry Park Calgary Co-Op, 650 ml, no bottle date or best before, acquired 29-Jun-2016, reviewed 29-Jun-2016)

Appearance: slightly hazy pale amber with one finger of soapy white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: sweet tangerine, floral, grainy caramel malt. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, mild tart. (6/10) Medium-light slightly soapy body, moderate carbonation, short duration sweet finish. (3/5)

Almost a tangerine shandy. The citrus flavour tastes fairly authentic, and isn’t excessively sweet. The biggest down side with this is a slightly soapy texture (and taste?) that dulls the flavours. Would be nicer if it was brighter. (12/20)
