UPDATED: APR 9, 2013 Brewvival Trip Beer 55. Draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy yellow color with no head. Weak aroma of bread, citrus and caramel. The taste is bread, caramel, citrus and a spicy finish. Medium bodied. 5000th USA rating!

On tap at Aiken Brewing. A very clear golden pour with tiny white head. Scent is citrus. Taste has a subtle spicey taste. Nice if you enjoy the style

Golden-yellow with good lacing. Light nose of orange blossom. Medium bodied with round mouth feel. Slight orange on palate as well as wheat. Short, wheat finish. A little different-not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gold with just a hint of red and a foamy off white head and lace. Large brown sugar, sweet maltiness and abv on the nose. Spiced sweet flavor with some fruit, cherries I think. Very nice full bodied beer with good carbonation.

on tap-pours a disappearing white head and gold color. Aroma is sweet medium malt. Taste is sweet medium malt, fruity, some spice hops. Close to a bock/mai bock.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at GABF 2007. Cloudy golden color with a frothy white head that diminishes rapidly when swirled. Mild clove banana ester, perhaps a suggestion of bubble gum. Flavor was somewhat lemony with a small dollop of balancing sweetness. A bit thin in body to be remarkable.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2008 Draft pint. Golden, mostly clear with medium head that diminished fairly rapidly. Aroma is citrus and spice - maybe coriander. Taste is similar, and very much like a Blue Moon, but smoother. Nice spring and summer refresher, but not enough body or wheat-yeast flavor to suit my Hoegaarden-esque tastes.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Cherry-berry malt and light hops aroma. Golden yellow color with moderate head. Tart cherry malt flavor with a nice flowery hops flavor. More fresh fruit flavor - nice flavor and palate - not too strong. A nice, enjoyable beer.
