3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I just celebrated Christmas Eve dinner, sharing a bottle of this with my brother-in-law. I had aged the bottle two or three years, and the aging didn’t hurt it any though it’s impossible to say what it would have been fresh. It’s an attractive pour, with a big initial head and a somewhat oily body, with a hazy range of colors, like a sunset in brown-to-yellow spectra. The flavor wasn’t all that exceptional, but is reasonably well balanced with some alcohol lifting the aroma and flavor and some yeast, bread, citrus, and very mild hops. Body a little flat (a product of aging?) Decent, drinkable, though not a particularly good complement to a dinner of BBQ ribs (a family Christmas Eve tradition). 750 ml. bottle.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quite tasty but nothing overtly Christmas. Does that matter? Probably not. Very fruity and spicy aroma from a cloudy amber with a big head. The flavor is fruity at first and the peppery with a nice alcohol burn at the end. Very warming and since it’s only about 20 degrees here in the Pinelands, that’s a good thing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy, peach gold with a tall, frothy light beige head that has excellent retention and leaves some tiny bits of lacing. Aroma is tree fruit, zesty citrus, peppery yeast, sweet floral notes, a bit of alcohol and some dry grass. Flavor is dusty grain, light tree fruit, hay, bready and peppery yeast, a touch of fusel alcohol, and grassy yeast. Palate is surprisingly light bodied, moderately carbonated and has a slightly chalky feel. Not the best BSA out there, a little bland really.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11oz bottle from Bev4less. Pours a hazy dark gold color with a small white head that quickly recedes to a fine film. The aroma is Saison-like with spices, white fruits, yeast and cardboard. The flavor has molasses, brown sugar, plums, dough and a hint of cola. The palate is somewhat thin and the carbonation is prickly. Finishes medium in duration with lingering burnt sugar. Overall: Ok beer, but I expected more.

copper pour with large off-white head.
nose is candy malt, gingerbread, bananna(?)
light body-flavor light spiced and sweet malt, chocolate and hazlenut(?) a litle dusty or chalky. dry finish a lot drier than one would think from such a sweet beer. Not bad but nothing special either.
