2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle; picked it up since it was cheap and from a Michigan brewery I’d never heard of (Butternut Brewing). Pours a clear copper with a white head. Slightly yeasty, slightly red fruit, biscuity aroma. Flavor has light to medium honey, wheat biscuit, vague impressions of yeasty cloves, citrus, red fruit. Overall, nothing interesting, but nothing negative, either. It’s just... there.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of the very best of the style I had, a cross-style to a lambic! Like wild yeast, I got the strawberry, fruitiness, active carbonation, and it was a great drinker. Above average mouthfeel. Fruity aroma. Pink bodied with a small white topping. Refreshing and tasty. Thanks FlandersNed for pushing this on me.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle...a fruity pink Wit that had some nice character, but seemed a bit on the thin side. Reminded me of a sort of ’light’ version of Short’s Soft Parade. Definitely a beer for the heat of summer. BTW, I really like the label.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reddish golden color with small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of light fruits, toffee, some toasted malts, and spices. Taste of lighter fruits, toast, and a wheaty finish.
