3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Bitter End. Murky yellow color with a white head. Aroma was fruity and yeasty. Tasted like some apple, sharp wheat, and some tropical fruit. Had a kin dof funkiness to the aftertaste that I was not fond of. Aside from that, this was not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had on tap at the brewpub in Austin. Pours a bright translucent orange with a light white head, good lacing. Has a bit of a floral-like aroma with some strong yeasty notes.The flavor has some of the same qualities with some added bubble gum and candied sugar notes to add to the mix. Mouthfeel is fairly thick, does not distract with spritziness. An overall solid effort from the folks at BE.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly murky gold and orange color. Tart, spicy with wheat and hay flavors... creamy yeast flavors as well. Salty, like the vaporizer, with some light citrus and milk flavors. Strong, but not devastatingly good. Floral nose.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Back on tap! It pours a cloudy orange with a nice creamy head and great lacing. Nice phenolic and spicy nose. Flavors of apple, malt, and a little banana at the end. Creamy texture. Gets better as it warm. Great beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Pale-amber. A certain bland tartness lingers in this beer from start to finish, kind of like granny smith apple extract with some young malts mixed in, and a hint of underripe bananas. Drinkable bit BE has better beers than this. An interesting experiment. Lingering and slightly sweet aftertaste, especially as it warms.
