3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
June 2013 bottle @ home, via my rotbox. Hazy yellow-orange appearance with a healthy, off-white head. Aroma shows some signs of age - stale malts especially - along with some floral and big orange citrus notes. There’s also some heavy sugar in the nose and some spice notes (pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove). Quite sweet and high alcohol content. Low bitterness. Sort of tastes like an over aged Belgian blonde like an old Westy Blonde though not as good. A lot of spice and a lot of alcohol. Time hasn’t helped this beer at all. It is fine right now but not great.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy cream soda color, quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is spicy apricot. Flavor was pretty underwhelming, just some mild spice and notes of banana and coriander. Came across as homebrewish to me.

Floral (duh), fruity and peppery. Sounds good on paper but somehow doesn’t add up for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
August 28th, 2013 - Elevation Brewing’s Wild Flowers name itself conjures images of mountain fields filled with dainty flowers, shining in an Alpine style light - bleached and bright, and clear and crisp. Does the beer live up to the drinker’s vision? The brew is a Scandinavian hey - light and pale straw, with hues of blue in the light, and the smell is very much in the hefeweizen family. The slight tang of yogurt, underripe banana and a touch of French vanilla cue the appetite symptoms. The palate id extremely velvety and soft, opening slowly to the flavor, which mirrors the nose, but ends with a more notable tangy touch. There’s also an added touch of herbaceous, like crisp lettuce, and even a bit of oregano, though so muted as to be barely noticeable. Crisp, clear and different, this is a beer I’d love to have at the tippy-top of a hike.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
...And they’re back! Lemony pour with hints of tangerine at its core and a tightly packed ivory cap. Tons of citrus, black pepper, clove, yeast, and floral notes in the nose. Similar zesty, tart, bright flavor that is complex and quite refreshing. A great new brewery for sure!
