2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle. This is probably an alias, but rating it just in case. Pours a clear copper color with a thin creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of, well, not much. Faint caramel and wheat. The taste is bready malts, nutty notes, stone fruits, a salty note and mild raisin and hops. Medium bodied.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from my daughter’s sampler pack. Nose is caramel,a little citrus, and a very light note of the hibiscus. Lightly hazy copper orange with a medium, heavy lacing, long lasting beige head. Flavor is lightly sweet caramel, a hint of bitterness, and a little pepper. OK, not horrible, much better than an average pale lager.

Bottle. Copper pour with white head. Smells of yeast and slight hop. Tastes of the same. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Orange red with a small white head that is mostly diminishing. Slightly spicy black pepper aroma atop caramel and moderate toffee. There is blink-and-you’ll-miss-it hibiscus flower in there, but it is quickly covered by the sweet malts. Slightly spicy with notes of graham cracker, malted milk, slightly sour straw. Not terrible, but definitely mediocre.

12oz bottle, best by Sep/02/13. Clear orange color. Thin bubbly off-white head. Couple loose bits of lace. Medium body. Lightly soft, smooth moderate carbonation. More dry finish. Light citrus hops. Moderate bitter taste. Some sweet. Not much hint of the belgian yeast. Reasonably solid, for a macro

Do they know what belgian yeast is? This tastes like every other beer in the variety pack. Disappointing!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a dark caramel with a half finger of off-white head. Aroma of orange zest and dark wheat. Taste is light bitter and light sweet. Herbal and burnt caramel with a little grain. Medium bodief with a decently thick texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. Enjoyable but not super special.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear copper with a creamy, transient beige head. Aroma is floral/citrus with some subtle caramel backing. Med body. Flavor is more floral than anything else, with a little sweet caramel. Some citrus in the finish. Which is more malty than not.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy pale ale with a soft head. The aroma is of simple wheats, the body is actually fairly strong, and the finish is clean. A decent beer.
