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.

Bottle from Jungle Jim’s. Poured a hazy golden with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate tart fruit and alcohol aroma. Medium body, thick particles wth lively carbonation. Medium balanced fruity sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish with a very small alcohol tone. Good brew.

[581-20070906] 330mL (w/ jerc). Apricot spice aroma with strong sweet pine resin and wood notes. Cloudy, brown orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white head and some bits floating at the bottom. Flavour is sweet pine resin and burnt wood, some floral, something like ginger and a smoky background. Medium body has some astringency. Very interesting aromatic characteristics, alcohol is noticeable but not overwhelming -- certainly shows shades of snowy yeti slopes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Rozi’s in Cleveland, shared with Mabel. Golden yellow body with a good sized head at first, but it fades rather quickly. Strange aroma is kind of neat, odd fruity character (pineapple? mango or apricot) moderate spice that I do not really know, light floral note. Similar flavours with a very fruity main component with the spice as an accent, very light hints of alcohol. Smooth average palate. I like this, but it really does not make me want a second one.
