2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Toronto Festival of Beer 2001 - Slightly bitter finish, this is a flavourful and tasty beer. Very refreshing with a nice hop finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2003 small head and a little bit of a fuzzy feeling. Sharp and crisp and tart in a way. Maybe a little too wheaty for my tastes. But not bad.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The head was too big (bubbles). The aroma was just ok, with a hint of fruit. The flavor was average or a little better. I liked this beer but would not say it is superior.

Had with M500, and it might have been out of date as indicated. Very skunky, and not very enjoyable.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Skunky all over, but still some sour apple, some pear and some tiny hops available. This sample was a year old. The skunkiness ruined the overall taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Apricot color, not much head. Ripe apples, bababa, malt and alcohol aroma. Malt, peach (or is it pear), ripe apple, some honeyish sweetness balanced by a hint of acidity and a dash of bitterness. Some alcohol dryness in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours nicely: golden, and cloudy with a little head. Aroma is somewhat sweet. Tastes very spritzy and carbonated, but overall quite refreshing.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice yeasty (subtle) aroma without too much 'mash'. Very cloudy amber/orange appearance with quickly vanishing head and bubbles. Smooth, somewhat boring taste with a very malty aftertaste which has a 'grainy' overtone. Fairly bland from what I expected.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
appley aroma, cloudy orange with lots of tiny sediment, soft peachy flavors and yeastiness with some lingering hoppiness

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy with little chunks of yeast, hardly any head. Orange, hops and a slight mustard aroma. Indeed sprakling with a good lacing. Hoppy, just a bit yeasty flavor with apple. Very refreshing, maybe just a bit thin, but with a fairly long hoppy finish. Lovely beer from down under.
