2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Really nice copper color. Smells kinda mineral-like and lagerish, no hint of weizen-style yeast. Tastes kinda thin. I know "thin" isn’t a flavor, but there’s not much else there. Almost like they used the wheat to lighten up a dopplebock, instead of using it and the appropriate yeast to add flavor and character. Probably good for a quick buzz @ an easy drinking 7%. But, hey, very pretty color.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Refrigerated bottle, best by February 2014, poured into a weizen glass. Pours clear copper with half inch dense beige head. Aroma is caramel malt, medium body medium carbonation, and pretty good big bubble lacing. Taste is big malty caramel malt, hints of yeast, some bread, and hints of vanilla in the finish. Not the typical combination of flavors, especially for a german variety, but not a bad beer, and I don’t think the age of the beer made much difference.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz. bottle, consumed on 5-8-14. Simple, tangy, musty aroma features scents of caramel and apple juice. Pours a clear amber with a small amount of beige head. Simple, tangy flavor features toffee and a touch of vanilla in the finish. Dry aftertaste. Light to medium body. Lively in the palate. Easy to drink. Pleasant but simple, unsophisticated, and forgettable overall. Boring beer for which I was unable to create extensive notes because it was so uninspiring.

Bottle from Sugaya, shared at the Dig Bar American Craft Event. Slightly past date. Served in a tulip. A nice malty caramel somewhat yeasty aroma. The beer has a medium bodied with a spritzy mouthfeel. The taste is caramel, toffee, yeast, mild spices think some kind of spicy bready cake. Pretty good.

22 oz bottle poured an Amber hue with very little head. Mildly sweet aroma. Taste is bland. Hard to pick any discernable flavors. I am not liking this beer. It is smooth I’ll give it that. Not good though, overall.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours a clear dark copper color with a small white head. A big spicy fruity nose. The dominant flavor here is crisp sweet malts, dry leaves, some grapes, a bit of toffee and caramel. Pretty mellow despite the ABV. This is the kind of beer I’d like on cask. Anyway, pretty good. Cool label.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Pours a clear medium brown, with a small khaki head which rapidly fades. No lacing. Nose is faint notes of caramel and brown sugar. Taste is watery, with faint caramel undertones. Nothing special. Not horrible, but just OK.

24oz Bottle pours a clear light brown. Small but sturdy sandy head with aromas of soft fruit, apples and mellow tones of caramel and brown surag. Some light pitted fruit in the flavors, more maltiness and a touch of paper at the end. Soft carbonation and a rich smooth palate. Very tasty
