3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft… Berliner Bash on the Bay 2013… Lightly-hazed straw-colored ale with a small, fizzy, white head that’s gone in a flash. The aroma is straight-up black jellybean. Light-bodied and watery with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is thin, but offers black licorice and a faint, spicy, Belgian yeast note. Short, crisp, sassafras finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a light yellow color with huge amounts of licorice, and anise. Flavors are the same all black licorice, cant fault the beer for delivering what it says it is, just licorice is not my thing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Cigar City. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is big anise and sweet black licorice with mild citrus and pepper. Flavor follows the nose: sweet anise and black licorice with hints of citrus and pepper. Light in body and not bad: better than I thought with black jelly bean in the title.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Cigar City with Linh and Maggi. Pours a light hazy golden body with thin white lacing. Aroma is faint licorice, wheat and soda. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of wheat, mint, jelly bean, and grain. Not a big fan of this one - and I probably wouldn’t have been able to stomach more than the taster.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours Yellow. Nose is heavy licorice. Flavor is grainy and way too much black licorice. Pretty tough to drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy light gold with a paperthin white head. Aroma of licorice and wheat. Taste is licorice and wheat. The licorice is mild which is nice. It’s there but not in your face. Light and drinkable
