3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery.
Aroma is full of rich malt character and a ton of fruit esters. Light bananas, some pear, red apple and tropical fruit.
Pours a clear copper color with a thin white head with amazing retention.
Flavor is similar with a sweet caramel malt character and a ton of esters. Same esters as in the aroma along with some raisin. Light bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth.
Overall an alright beer but I feel it needs something more to balance out all the esters.

A great beer from Avery's. Not one of my absolute favorites, but definitely worth a try. A drinkable beer with light alcohol taste. I tried a bottle.

Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. 12 oz. Used a pint glass. Aroma was Belgian yeasts, some dark fruits, caramel, earth. Taste is similar with not much boldness. Light caramel finish, Belgian yeasts were also light. Medium body. Ok.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle golden. Nose floral and fruit hop with sweet malt. Taste floral and candy sweet up front with some of the belgian ester tastes. Bitter in mid palate and bitter finish with hint spice finish. I enjoyed this beer much more than other ratings would suggest.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not a huge beer. Bad Karma may have hit me by bringing further boring Belgian Pale Ales after I give this beer a lackluster rating, or maybe it’s just the brewers who had some bad karma coming back at them for some past delinquency. Not much going on here. Blonde pour with ok head. Very light florals. Seems like Belgian yeast. Finishes malty and sweet. Bottle.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours a golden almost bronze color. The aroma has slight bananas with yeast and caramel. The taste is not complex and sort of blah... melon, banana, caramel. Overall, not one of Avery’s better beers.
