copper pour with small off white head.
I know this brewer is known for itís euro style malty beers, but this one is more than a little off balance. bitter finish.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottled. pours amber with very little white head. aromas of malt and caramel. the flavors do not make it to the palate. taste is earthy, moderately bitter. it does not really meld. it is medium bodied with an odd bitter finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Heavy on the malts and a hint of spice thrown in. Minimal hop presence, but just not easy on the palate like it should be.

Bottle. Hoppy and caramel aroma. Similar taste. Little bit fruity and malty in the flavor as well, but overall it tastes incredibly watered down. Really bland, not a fan whatsoever. 6.1% alcohol.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma Is Wheat, cranberry, mild spice. Taste is not bad...a tad stale, but mildly sweet. Much better than the abita fall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of pine, citrus zest, and candied fruits. Flavors of caramel, pine, citrus, and ginger root. Green tea and ginger finish. A splash of weirdness in the spices thats hard to pinpoint. I like sugared ginger chews so this works for me. Still, a goofy beer that somehow manages to be endearing and festive.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle. tastes of brown sugar, sweet spices and chalky dry malt. taste hangs in your mouth. the spices were decent but the palate makes it less than refreshing. not one i would have again.
