3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden appearance with a moderate head. The flavor is very acidic like heartburn in a bottle. A very sour flavor is present. Lemons and more lemons. More decent stuff from Avery.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice cloudy golden color,medium sized head that lasted for some time and then slowly fading to a decent lace.The aroma was fruity and spicey with a decent flavor of light malt but mostly fruit and spice coming through as well as a mild hop taste towards the end.Not a bad brew but not exactly what i’m looking for eather.Decent enough to try again though in the distant future.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice orangy color with hints of copper. Smells of fresh citrus and a peachy hint. Soft fruity sweetness....a little fizzy and would go well with a light chicken or pasta dish.
Good sweet beer to introduce to a girl friend...use like champagne.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Brewtopia ’04.
Little head above a clear, deep yellow body. Hop aroma is a little much for the style. The flavor is spicy, playing between clove, corriander and orange in the background. O.K., but not hitting the mark dead on.

Brewtopia’04. Another mild smelling Avery beer, some peachy fruitiness, a bit nutty. Uninspired flavor, grapeskin, slight spice(savory), not enough alcohol presence IMO. Sort of briney. Kind of flowery/hoppy.

I was somewhat excited to try this beer, but disappointed with the taste. It smelled pretty good and the appearance was nice, but the taste was just too alcoholic. I would say if that was toned down a bit, this would be an above average beer.
