Looks frothy dark amber pour. Aroma of berries, barley, honey, and grapes. Tastes strongly boozy malty. Overall it’s too sweet and not a pale as advertised though there are some pleasant yeast tones.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2013 clear, medium copper color, minimal head that quickly fades. sweet malt/grain aroma. a very fruity, estery nose. a note of apricot, mild passion fruit. medium body, a bit of tang in the flavor. a somewhat weak, watery finish. fruity/yeast flavors mixing with malt sweetness, and serious graininess in the flavor.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very disappointing. I’m generally a fan of Avery products but not this one. A very weak attempt at a Belgian Style Ale - not at all what I expected from a top brewer like Avery. It was freshness dated so i know the problem was not caused by age. One of the advantages of a Mix-a-Six - I didn’t get stuck with more than 1 bottle.

Earthy aroma with hints of fruit. Pours a cloudy honey gold with a thick foamy off white head. Effervescent, fruity with a little hint of sourness and a slight sharpness at the finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle to glass. Way too malty for my tastes. Palate is weak, similair to an amped up Budweiser.
