3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear yellow-gold color with a thin white head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, caramel malt and fruit. Medium-bodied with flavors of herbal yeast, fruit and spices. The finish is fruity up front with an herbal yeast and malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

Cloudy golden colour with little to no head. Sharp, champagne fizz with a very pleasing honey taste. Not too strong, but can definitely taste the honey. Very nice beer. (K)

750ml bottle shared at GTMW ticket wait out 2014. Belgian tones but smooth and easy like a Cream Ale at times. A little buttery, grainy. A touch flat, thin, Odd nutty tones. OK...kind of.

[Tap] Deep golden colored pour with a ring of foam on the edge of the glass. Nose is of banana esters and bready aromas. Tasting notes include honey, yeast, straw, peaches, grainy malts and lighter hints of grape must. Mild flavors throughout, but no real off flavors here. Interesting.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
25 ounce bottle purchased at Nugget in Woodland, CA. The aroma is interesting with a little bit of dusty yeast esters present with a little floral sweetness, too. Not much else. Essentially transparent golden body with a medium to small whitish head present. Starts with some sticky, chewy sweetness...honey-like. Graham cracker is also present as well. Becomes a little estery in the middle with some banana and lightly floral. Finishes a touch undercarbonated. This is really one-dimensional, and disappointing.

Bottle. A lush golden color with a light foamy white head. A zesty citrus aroma with orange peel, honey and yeasty Belgian notes. It does not pop on the palate or at the finish but otherwise carries through nicely.

Berkeley - land of dirty hippies. Stanford FTW. Nice looking beer, fizzy pour, slightly hazy golden. Slightly Belgian aroma with honey and mild spice. Somewhat sweet flavor, caramel and pale malt with honey and apple. Fairly thick on the mouthfeel despite the lively carbonation. Not too crazy. Solid beer.

On tap at SF Beer Week Opening Gala. Pour is yellow and fizzy with a small white head. Aroma is of light fruit, yeast, and honey. Flavor is on the sweet side with notes of pear, peach, apples, hay, and anise. I liked this better than the Barrel-aged version.
