Appearance-Cloudy orange, looks very much like a hefweizen. Big bubbly off white head, about 2 fingers that immediate dissipates and leaves minimal lacing.
Smell-Breadiness with some citrus and spice, some light banana peel in there as well.
Taste-Sweet citrus with some funk, followed by banana and spice.
Mouthfeel-Light bodied with alot of carbonation. Palate cleansing, slight crisp, somewhat refreshing.
Overall-Good beer. Drinkable, easy to drink. Would order one of these on tap.
Serving type: can

The beer pours a cloudy orange color with a white head. The aroma is a mix of some farmhouse funk as well as some orange citrus and wheat notes. Very inviting. The flavor is more of the same. I get some hay, grass and grain notes as well as some orange citrus and other tropical fruit notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very easy to drink and very refreshing.

This made it back to Petrol Station after the initial release, and I was glad to try some. I have no idea what style to add this under. I guess Saison makes the most sense.
A: Pours a cloudy orange/yellow color. A one finger white head forms, but recedes to nothing. No lace is left.
S: Spicy, phenolic, banana esters. Light funk character. Simple and a little one dimensional.
T: Again, very one dimensional. Phenolic, banana, spice and a lingering sweetness.
M/D: A light to medium body that is a bit under carbonated. Very dry which I like. I just wish there was a bit more body. Very easy to drink. I can certainly put a few away without a problem.
Very interesting, and enjoyable. Most of the flavor is coming from the yeast, which is nice. I just want a bit more character. Still, I can see myself drinking several more when I get the chance. Cheers to Southern Star for trying something unique.
