3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml. bottle. Pours a well retained, tiny bubbled white head, over an ever so slightly hazy, particle laden, effervescent, gold body.......nose is light colored fruits, including pear, apple, hints of tropical fruits, mango, peach, light floral honey tones, clove, hints of cereal, minimal hops, balance to the yeast and adjuncts.....taste is slightly sweet, with honey notes, light pear, apple, hints of clove, hints on coriander, minimal cereal, no hops, finishing slightly towards dry, balance to the yeast and hops....mouth feel, medium body, alcohol warmth present, high carbonation and acid. This is a fruit beer only because of the ingredients. It really is in the realm of a Belgian Golden Strong or a very light Tripel. The multitude of adjuncts were used with a light enough hand so as to add complexity with out domination. The only flaw is in the appearance with the particle laden body, which may have been a storage issue or aging, but not a brewing problem. BJCP 7/1/14/4/7

Pours a very pale yellow, almost throughs a tinge of chartreuse into things. Actually, coincidentally enough (ok, itís just my willful belief) itís almost hte same colour as the album cover (in the year 3030...). Finger and a half of white driven snow fades soon enough.
You really get the cider on the nose. Itís sweet and crisp up front. Round pears and a bit of Belgian yeast. Minor light spices, not picking up much depth behind that.
The cider takes front court again, spicy Belgian yeast brings pear to the party, and the Belgian spice segues nicely into the light cayenne heat at the end. The finish is surprisingly earthy and bitter; a characteristic that was not necessarily present earlier in the profile. Dunno if the cilantro and farro could be contributing to the earthiness, or if Iím just making hte connection because I was looking for them since Iíd read the description, but at the very least itís not completely without the realm of believability.

From a bomber. Pours a clear gold with a foamy white head. Smells of yeast and cereal, and apple. Tastes of sweet apple and belgian white. A bit if cayenne on the aftertaste. An interesting overall taste, but not as distinctive as I'd hoped for.

Taster at the brewery. Nothing outstanding about this beer, but also nothing that is offensive. Finished dry and crisp and tasted like a premium beer. I know this is a lame description, but it about sums it up.

(bottle - 750 ml) Cloudy orange pour with a fizzy head. Tangy aroma with lots of wheat and spice notes. Flavor is tangy as well. Some sweetness, then dryness, then fruit, then spice... way too much going on. Can taste all the ingredients which to me isnít very good. Not bad, but nothing great.

Tap. Cloudy light yellow pour. Beautiful pour. Tomato, spice, coriander, fruit, honey. Complex. Well balanced carbonation that balance out the sweet spiciness. Long herbal and fruity complex finish. Very easy to drink but very complex. Awesome
