3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
750, corked and baled. Thanks Tyto! Pours a crystal clear golden medium amber with tons of nucleation and a dense, eggy platinum blond head. Lots and lots of webby lace pocked around the glass after the head falls--it really towers up off the pour. Pleasant nose of hay and grass with light lemon brightening it. Rich breadiness with light wheat tang over all that. Creamy medium body with bright and lively carb showing everywhere. Brown bread, wheat tang, hay, grass, and a bit of lemony tartness on the mid palate. Mild finish. Quite good.

Brownish pour, light tan head. Caramel, honey and light hops in the aroma. Flavor is sweet and a bit hoppy...honey, caramel, citrus hops. Nice beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to mar. The look is a big foamy white head and orange in color. The smell is wheat, fruits, malts, banana, and citrus. The taste is sweet, alcohol, malts, citrus, and fruits.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a fiery reddish orange into the glass with bright highlights and a rocky white head. Aroma is a sweet wheat malt with a floral hop character that beckons for a taste. Flavor is a delicate sweetness that coats the mouth in a non cloying way. Instead the body is velvety. The hallertau and citra hops add a nice bitterness to the beer but do not take away from the malt. Boozy, but rightly so. Warming and ready to open up as it sits. I donít get much upfront oak character, though Iím sure it has rounded out this beer as opposed to straight stainless.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour is a cloudy orange with a huge white head. Aroma is nice with some peaches and candi sugar. Some lingering hops make and appearance as well. Flavor is stellar. At first i get some oak and and wine. Then comes a nice citrus hop followed by a bit of dark fruit. Alcohol is no problem as this is a very easy to drink beer. Another good one from the Boulvard smokestack series.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to ksbeerkid, sampled on 1/10/10: Pours a slightly hazy amber bronze with an airy froth of off-white head. Aroma of fresh herbal hops and sweet malty wheat with a peppery clove character. Starts with pretty good fullness and semi-sweet caramel maltiness with some floral grassy hop character and lemon citrus zest before a drier, warming, mildly buttery finish. A pretty unique brew, but could use some aging.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2011 Rerate: I donít normally rerate that many beers, but this one deserves it. I am kind of blown away by this beer. Perfectly balanced fruit, hops, oak, and malt, this is one of a kind. Really lucky to have regualr access. Phenomenal beer!
Orange body with an absurd large bubbled white head. Particalia quite apparent as well. Once the dense head settles down, there is quite a refreshing aroma, with similarities to a dry belgian ale. Quite yeasty, with some tart lemon and apricot scents, as well as caramel malts beneath. Flavor is warming, not as rough as many in this style. Quite drinkable.
Good, albeit slightly undercarbonated.
Original rating: 3.7
