3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
draft, Kitchen Next Door. hazy orange body with a fine bubbled white head. fruit ester nose shows notes of peach skin, apples and orange pith with a milk/cream yeast note and starchy potato/cracker grains. similar flavor (peach, cream, crackers, etc.) with high sweetness, medium-low acid and soft carbonation. altogether easy to drink without paying too much attention to, but the ester profile is far too fruity / apple-heavy and though the yeast muddles it all somewhat, it would probably be appear sweeter were it filtered, and it’s already sweet enough.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Trinity Brewery pours golden/amber with bubbly head. Aroma is over powering of ginger and spices. Good carbonation again though ginger is just too much, slight juniper, kinda taste like an old leather shoe. Not very well balanced. I think for a Brewery just over a year old it has promise and eventually they’ll really figure this one out, this could become a lot better beer.
