3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a fest chalice, showing a hazed, light golden color, gradually diminishing, a modest layer of white head foam, and light lacing. The nose was light yeast, tartness, grape, kiwi, light nuttiness, and some sweet biscuit. This sweetness transferred to the taste only as an initial hint, then faded. Light bodied, the taste continued citrusy tart, almost sour, with lively effervescence and prickly carbonation, paired with low hop bitterness, resulting in a crisp & dry finish. Basically refreshing, with some interesting complexity,

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from one of the cousins in the barrio. Pours misty pale gold with quickly diminishing white head and trace lacing. It’s been a while since I’ve read the Diario. Nose is musty sweet wine. Flavor adds wheat and orange peel, but nothing like an Orange Julius. I don’t detect the almonds or even George Drakoulias. Definitely a summer ale. Muscat flavor goes away quickly and makes way for a standard wheat ale. I can’t believe it’s 6.8% ABV, more like half that. RIP.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours nice and hazy, a white wine color accompanied by a foamy, finger and a half head. Nice aromas of almonds and citrus notes, mainly orange. The grapes and wheat come through on the tongue, as well as some spice notes. Bread and almonds are left on the finish. Although a bit too heavy to be a good summer day beer, it goes down well on a summer night. Also worth noting, this is my dad’s new favorite beer.
