3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 12oz bottle. Pours a copperish red with a small white head. Fruity aroma filled with cherries and brown sugar. Taste is spicy, similar to belgain yeast flavors, which gives way to a bubble gum flavor. Only downside in the flavor was a slight mineral finish. Hides the alcohol nicely. Beer leaves a lot of lacing on my glass. Really solid beer, especially considering the price.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2009 Dave’s BrewFarm version: First public offering of Dave’s Brew Farm flagship test beer. On draught during the Autumn Brew Review 2009 in Minneapolis, MN. Pours a hazy brownish amber colored brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a creamy top head and some spotty lacing. Aroma is slightly fruity, flowery hops, sweet multi-grain malt and a hint of vanilla. Taste is medium to full bodied, smooth, with flavors of fruity apples, honey, a hint of candi sugar and bubble gum. Finish is semi-sweet with a fruity pear/apple aftertaste the slowly disappears. Any rye malt is well hidden behind the sweet sugar addition in the profile. Overall, a decent smoothy silk and semi-sweet specialty grain beer.
