2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2009 I pourd this on in a Stella Glass. Bright golden-orange color. A very sweet nose of citrus fruits and spice. On the palate, same fruitiness leaning more toward exotic ones like mango. Finishes off-dry. Quite nice, and easy to drink. Alcohol well hidden, nicely incorporated.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle - Pours yellow-orange with almost no head. It has big flakes of yeast floating around in it. It smells sweet and fruity, rather like cherries. The flavor is sweet and the fruit notes are interesting. I’m thinking lime for some reason. It’s medium bodied and a little bubbly on the palate, finishing just a little dry. Good beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark yellow colored with little white head. Sweet and fruity aroma with peachy and raisinny notes, mild alcohol also comes up. Medium bodied, crispy palate. Flavor is also sweet with same raisins, aftertaste has mild alcohol with still lasting raisins. Not the traditional BSA, still ok brew.

1.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours bright gold with a ring of foam around the edge. Lots of tan sediment. Nose is pure sweetness, doughy sugared plums. Taste is surprisingly thin. sugary raisins up front. Light to medium body. Medium carb. Turns acrid in the back of the throat. Overly sweet - no balance. I can’t finish it, its aweful.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled 33cl. It pours a hazy golden, slightly green? beer with a white head. The nose is of coconut, thyme, cinnamon, litchi, orange, vanilla and peach accompanied by malt and yeast - a wonderfully fruity and spicy aroma. Lots of thyme and fruit showing up in the taste. Nice lacing. Slightly peppery. The alcohol is surprisingly well hidden. Medium bodied. Some vitamin tablets, litchi and mango appearing. Amazing peppery finish with a hint of cinnamon.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tart! Apricot spice aroma. Not much in the appearance category. Flavor is very enjoyably tart, notes of grapes. I want one more bottle, very interesting beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dry, fruity aroma. Hazy orange tinged golden color with a white head that flattened quickly. Medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. Slightly sourish dry fruit flavor with some offsetting sweet malt. Possibly some floral hop. The finish is almost dry, and a bit woody. Some citrus develops. Very good ale.
