2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Pours a glowing orange copper color with a large, frothy beige head. Aroma of dry florals and grassey, rather indiscriminate. Tastes floral and sort of abrasive. There is a real grassey/dandelion/soapy thing going on that burns my tongue. I’ll let it warm and see if that helps... it does, the wheat comes forth to mellow out the earlier brash florals. A little dry and some faint spices try to come through, but still a little odd for my taste. Maybe its the wood coming through or the strong hallertau presence... just not quite up to par.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is hazed ruddy amber with a big (overly so) off white head...smell is lightly fruity and sweet with some pepper and oak too...taste is sweet and slightly syrupy with lots of light caramel and apple flavors...nice mouthfeel...I expected this to be much richer than it was...it almost works during the summer...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured amber with a rocky off-white head. Aroma of wheat and clove spice. The flavor was much the same (clove and wheat) with yeast presents also. Medium body and tingly carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
25.4 oz bottle. Cloudy orange with swirling bits and beige icing. Nose is yeasty banana, clove and musty plastic. Almost syrupy with a sharp tang finishing like a seltzer. Taste is honey, ginger and wheat. Slightly herbal with some grassy bitterness. Very much like a trippel. Got into this a bit more as i worked through the bottle.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from eric "the most interesting man in TX"...Shared at SL. Cork shot it self off, lol... Light orange color. Lots of carbonation... Monster head that took a minute to settle. Taste is fruity? Apples, peaches?? wheat and some bready maltiness. Nice sipping beer. Texture was a little over-carbonated but still smooth. Nice beer, thanks ericandersnavy.

Not a great beer at all, not terrible, I wouldnt buy it again. I was expecting substantially more. too boozy, tasted like a rotten pear.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Oily and rich palate, juicy and buoyant hops, some wood notes, but overall I have never really enjoyed Hallertau hops and I thought the finish here was a little rough. My friends seemed to like it, however, so all’s good.
