3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Harry & Davids in Medford, OR. Pours light orange gold with a foamy white head - but not much of a head. Aroma is lightly cooked caramel with some yeast/spice notes. There’s more than that, but hard to describe. Full bodied. There’s a lot of yeast/spice, but also there seems to be a lot of noble hop - not grass - more herb. The alcohol is detectable - seems to make figuring out the flavors difficult. Otherwise it’s ok. Finally it seems to go into light pitted fruit, kandi, and yeast/spice. Ending moderately peppery with all the other stuff. Extremely enjoyable.

Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. Always happy to try a new beer from Elysian.
The beer pours a golden color with a white head. The aroma has a ton of wheat, as well as some Belgian yeast notes and some orange citrus. The flavor is very similar. There is a lot of orange citrus, as well as some wheat and biscuit malt, as well as a little bit of sugary sweetness and some alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Ale House at Amatos. Clear gold with a thin spotty head. Clean aroma of sweet pale malts, a touch of bubblegum, some light fruity esters, and maybe raisin(?). Taste is sweet pale cereal grains but with a drying biscuit yeast presence, some faint light fruity esters, and finishing dry and biscuit yeasty. A little disappointing.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Virtually no smell - very very very subtle belgian yeast, fine head; tasted as subtle as it smelled. Then I had some fries with it, and...wow, the beer bloomed. Honey, apricot, apple blossom. Very enjoyable with food, pretty unimpressive by itself.
