3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can from Total Wine, Chesapeake, VA. Yellowish-orange pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of lemon zest, Belgian candi sugar, and light mango. The aroma has real promise so the taste is a bit of a letdown. While there is nothing off-putting, the taste is weak with only mild flavors that are featured in the aroma. The lingering bitterness from the yeast is a bit surprising since there is little more than a hint of it in the flavor. Not a bad beer but not one I would recommend from what has otherwise been great from DC Brau.

12oz can courtesy of Greg G. Golden amber hue, murky clarity (cannot see through glass) with mostly diminishing white head. No lacing. Sweet aroma, grain, citrus (orange), floral aromas. Sweet taste (citrus) & grain up front with more grain on the finish. Light body, oily texture. I may have missed some things on this beer, but I enjoyed it. Had "The Public" after this, rating on this one to come.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can into a tulip. Pours a deep golden/light amber color with a thick, long-lasting white head. Smells of fruits and sweet malts. Very little complexity to the flavor, just sweet malt and a hint of fruit, with a dry finish. Not a bad beer, but not great.

Can from Whole Foods. Pours turbid orangy with off-white head. Nose is noble hops, yeasty, hoppy and citric. Tastes bready malty, with a big melon and orange marmaladey fruitiness, resiny hops, and a smooth, complex finish. This one is solid.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma - is a sweet malt with a little alcohol and somewhat floral
Appearance - is a hazy golden color with an initial white head that fades into nothing.
Taste - the taste is somewhat unpleasant, sort of malty sweet and too floral
Palate - the feel is effervescent and sharp.
Not a beer I’ll fondly remember.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 12 oz can from Sparrow, 12/29/13
Aroma: The nose is Belgian yeast, lots of spice, some citrusy hops, and bread
Appearance: It pours a murky looking orange juice color with a small off-white head
Flavor: Th flavor is more doughy, with plenty of spice, yeast, and some light hops
Palate: The body is medium, it has a tingly feel, plus carbonation, and a semi-dry finish
This was not my favorite DC Brau beer, but it wasn’t bad either. I think the rest of this 6 pack will go to good use as a party beer on the just around the corner New Years decent beer drinkers day.
