3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. dense white small head on this lighter yellow not clear brew. Aroma is pears, wheat, spice, a savoriness that clears easily into the palate. It is very heavy rich sweet with a tropical fruit and green salsa background, maybe but i couldnít pick out cilantro. Feel is dense and lively. The alcohol sits. A little too heavy for everyday drinking. But well constructed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear gold yellow pour with a fine white foamy head.
Aroma is pear, apple, banana. Bready malt. Little to no hop aroma.
Flavor is sweet--apple cider, pear juice, bananas foster, rum. A little bready malt. Little to no hop character. Moderately bitter aftertaste.
Medium carbonation. Medium full mouthfeel.
Quite interesting. A lot going on. More cider than beer it seems. Quite tasty and the bitterness in the finish quite balances out the initial sweetness on the palate.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: pear, apple, light malts, banana, hints of pepper, some light pepper and spice notes.
Appearance: light golden pour, thick white head with good retention and lots of thick lacing.
Taste: big fruit profile - lots of apple and pear, also banana and grapes. A very faint touch of heat, spice character is fairly mild but some pepper/oregano notes creep in, low bitterness, notable Belgian yeast character. Finish is on the sweet side, but not offensive.
Palate: medium+ body, medium-high carbonation, a bit thick in the finish.
Overall: decent brew, big on the fruit, spices are noticeable but in check.

Bottle from Wegmans Sterling - pours a clear orange with a finger of white head. Aroma is complex, wheaty, funky, apple, lemon grass, and seriously some spaghetti notes - oregano? Taste is sweet, with a sour tart bite, but itís nowhere near lambic sour, for folks who like that. Overall, very nice!

It's been three years since I graduated from the Handsome Boy Modeling School. And this beer's poured from a 750 into a Duvel Snifter. Pours a light yellow with light head and smooth white lacing. Fruity, spicy, Belgian aroma. Mouthfeel is ridiculously light for a 9%. Taste is Saison with lemon yeast bubblegum spice mild pine and pith. I was worried this would be too spiced but it was subdued and well blended. Too expensive to drink regularly but pretty good.

Westmeisterís Birthday Beer Tasting Extravaganza Beer #3. This was the beer where the casual drinkerís started asking, "wait, this is beer?" Poured the color of commercial bread crust. Alcohol and passion fruit were all over the nose. There was enough bitterness in the flavor to balance out the fruity sweetness. Very fizzy with a smooth finish. Bottle - Source Unknown

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. Pours cloudy cantaloupe with a medium collapsing off-white big-bubbly head. Aroma consists of apples, Belgian yeast. Description up there says this is loosely based on the witbier style, but that is the dominant flavor, even over the cider. Itís sweet, savory, lightly tart, finishing dry. The cayenne is very light, only barely revealing itself in the finish, providing a little heat. Iím not getting the cilantro, and I donít know what farro tastes like, so I couldnít tell you if itís in there or not. Alcohol is almost completely hidden. Itís hard to believe this is 9%. Carbonation is fine, body a little thin. Overall, a good, not great beer. I wish the cayenne and cilantro were more prominent.

This is a medium-light bodied beer that is quite refreshing. Flavor is a spicy apple and grape. Very smooth on the tongue.

The most notable thing here is the spicy finish. It's warm and complements the lighter flavor of the rest of the beer very well. It's flavorful, but doesn't go out of it's way to be an experience outside of the transition from the light fruit hints to the spice at the finish. All in all a good one trick beer that I would drink again any time. Good for all occassions.

Bottle pour clear yellow with champagne bubbles. Nose of clove, spice, caramel malt ,and esters. Taste the same, with some early sweetness. The ending is a little weird, earthy, mineral, then bitter. Didnít get the cilantro or cider. Very saison like.
