3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden hue, light foamy head, bready aroma, fruity nose coming from the yeast and pale malt follows through on a medium-bodied palate with fruity flavors, pala malt accent in a acicic and shy bitter hop finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy amber/orange with a small, off-white head that’s hanging in there. Aromas started with cabbage, but improved to sour cherry and apple with spices and a noticable yeastiness. Sour through and through (and appreciated as such) with light malts on the back end. Almost-medium-bodied and creamy on the tongue, but a little too sticky in the throat.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy gold color with a quickly dissipating head. Sweet and fruity scent of berries in the aroma. Light, delicate mouth feel that is slightly sweet but not at all malty or caramely. Has a lemony tarness that is quite interesting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a Hazy gold with a ton ’o floaters and a white, quickly dissipating head. Aromas of sweet citrus, mango, and bananas. Med lite bodied. Flavor is somewhat stale with a slight lemony sour zest to it with some oxidation. Light CO2. Finish is farely dry. Good but not great and they have to do a better job of siphoning wih out getting so much of the yeast.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Form the 33cl bottle.
Pours a clear, bright gold with dense, frothy, ivory head. Big chunky lace on the side of the glass. Smell is grasssy and lightly hoppy. Fruity and spicy. Apples, clove and nutmeg aromas.
Tastes is of sour apple at first. Then the spiciness. Clove and white pepper. Some hoppy bitterness. Underlying barnyard funk. Sticky but with a dryness in the finish. A bit fizzy. I like the funk and I like the dry finish. A bit too stick in the middle. Just OK, all in all.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2008 Cloudy orange with a slight, quickly dissipating head, this beer reeks of sour raisins. Slightly sweet candy sugar is moderated by a tart citric fruitiness. Well balanced and easily drinkable. The alchohol content is well disguised. Slight hop bite, akin to an orange peel, is the last thing I taste. Overly effevescent; very careful pour resulted in a whole glass of foam.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2011 I have had this one only a couple of times. Sampled on draft at the Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh this beer pours a hazy deep golden color with a large white head that produces lots of lacing. The aroma is tart, sweet and sugary. The flavor is bitter, tart, tangy, sweet, sugary. The finish is long tart and sweetish. The mouthfeel is moderately thick. A decent beer but I like their Grand Cru better.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice deep orange color, small frothy head on top. Banana, yeast and earthy notes in the nose a gogo. Koriander and an intense peach taste. Nice brew but suprising by the diversity of the otherwise promising nose and actual taste.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Apricot, pear, generally fruity nose with yeasty notes. Hazy gold with a low tight head. Sourish malt front - like green apples. Tart dry end. Medium body. I like this beer a lot - quirky but very good. Style-wise this falls between the cracks.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Extremely dense and creamy foam. Optimal persistence. Yellow gold color, dense and firm. Powerful and decided alcohol, malt and sugar aroma. Sturdy and full bodied taste. Much dense and prickly. Flowery and malt notes in the end. Truly strongly and persistent.
