3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Starts with a bready aroma, with a hint of sweetness behind it. Pour is a clear, reddish-amber, with just a dusting of head. Nice slightly sweet taste, hint of spice and a touch of bitterness in the finish. Medium mouthfeel. Very drinkable beer, pairs well with a nice dinner.

This beer was a very typical amber ale. Not much too it. The pour had a good color with a foamy head. Caramel and sugar in the nose and flavor.

12oz bottle to dark horse shaker. Malty biscuity flavor. Strange peppery finish from the yeast I assume.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle at home. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted bread, caramel, some mild earthy and citrus hops, some sweetness. This is not a style that really excites me, but this is not as good as most of their beers.

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a slightly hazy orange/amber with a decent but fairly thin head. Mild spice aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, spicy vegetal hop bitterness with even a bit of olive oil. Different, pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled a decent while ago -- October 22nd 2013. Poured January 21st 2014. Poured into a shaker pint.
Appearance: Pours a hazy as hell orange/brown sort of color. Only a bit of light gets through. Two finger head or so goes away after a few minutes, with only a bit of wispy foam on top after that. No lacing that I can see. Great color, but that’s it.
Smell: Smells like a Wit or something. Has that banana and spice sort of aroma that a Wit or Hefe would offer. Slightly sour. Quite Belgian. Not what I was expecting. Doesn’t smell bad, but it’s strange coming from an Amber.
Taste/feel: The banana and spice flavor is definitely there in the flavor as well. It drinks like a darker sort of Wit or Hefe. Fairly mild beer overall. Nice body on it with a good amount of carbonation as well. Drinkable. Not at all bitter. Slight tang on the finish from the yeast.
Decent brew, but I can see why people would be disappointed in it, going in and expecting a beer that doesn’t taste like, well, spiced bananas. I actually enjoy this beer. I’m not a huge fan of Wits or Hefes, so those flavors blended with some "darker" flavors is nice.
Interesting for the style. Good, not great.

bottle. Amber with small head. Substantial malt base with a lot of caramel malt. Light hops. Slightly aboverage for the style.

Cloudy orange pour. Very sweet. Apricot and earthy basement aroma. Fruity boring taste with not much I like about it. Had this on draft at Pour House.
