3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange amber color with a thin and creamy eggshell white head. Thin lacing too. Nice citrus and yeast aroma. Light-bodied with a mildly bitter character. Soft spices and yeast flavoring as well. Sour fruit aftertaste at times. The finish is dry and fruity with a hint of spice. All in all a decent seasonal from Avery.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
very clear sharp beer. Gold orange with a bit of an off white head. Aroma is sour malt and a toasty full malt. Flavor is tart with a mild malt sweetness. Fruity esters and sour fruitness. Nothing overly complex or amazing, but a clean beer.

If I get what I give, then I want my money back for this one. I paid entirely too much for a bottle of this, while it served the role of alcohol vehicle, it didnít score well in any other category for me. I donít think I will get this one again.

From a 12-oz. bottle: Interesting beer. Pours a medium amber with whitish head. Decent lacing. A standard-issue beer aroma. Taste is fairly restrained but some nice nuttiness & vanilla does show through. Somewhat sweet. Not watery, but fairly light bodied. Yes, Iíd buy it again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(12oz bottle) Medium, creamy beige head atop crystal clear apple juice body. Aroma is medium sweet, apple, melon, hay, lemon. Taste is medium sweet, apple, melon, caramel, pepper, lemon, some cookie dough, orange. Watery light-medium body, light chalkiness, nice crispness, would work as a lawnmower beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clouded golden appearance, decent head formation. Mild grainy, lightly spiced aroma, a touch of clove. Nice yeasty palate, slightly soily, fairly hoppy and citrussy. A little thin overall and a little confusing style wise (although Iíll credit that to it being the idea).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear copper pour with a smallish light-tan head that leaves some webbed lacing. Aroma is hoppy, citrusy, perfumed and spicy. Tastes like a mix between a saison and an IPA. Delicious. Medium to thin-bodied. Perfumed qualities along with some citrusy, bitter hoppiness and heavy spices. Lots of pepper and bitter hops in the dry finish. Another great beer from Avery. Whatís with the poor ratings? This is a great beer.
