4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Chalky blond and an effervescent white head. Tart, lactic aroma of bright fruit, ginger and pepper. Light to medium bodied with full flavor, still tart , but also malty and spicey. Nicely dry and lemony in the finish with just the right touch of ginger. I can’t tell what the other reviews were complaining about, maybe it needed the full 6 months in the bottle. It’s like a tripel with apricot. This beer is tasty, complex and well-structured.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On hand at Wynkoop’s United Tastes of Belgium 2012. Slightly hazy light gold in color, with a peppery apricot-y aroma atop some Belgian pale graininess. Flavor was nice and eccentric, with apricot and peppercorn and grains of paradise coming through very well. Finished a little grainy and funky, but still fun to drink.

Bottle at Dadtoberfest. Hazy gold with a white head. Peachy sweetness, light peppery spices, with some funky/musky notes in the background. I don’t know what the hell is going on here, but it’s pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
"A rather untraditionally full bodied pilsner. Dry bready and a bit sweet, with some grassy hops and hay and a slight tartness to make things interesting. Not bad. "

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Pours slightly hazy straw yellow with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is fruits (apricot), bready malts and spicy earthy yeast.
The flavor is sweet citric fruits with some spicy peppery yeast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and fairly watery.
Overall, a nice fruity summer beer. Good blend of the fruits and the yeast.

Bottle thanks to Dallas. I’m trying to leave and this guy keeps on cracking:) Nice work man! Pours a cloudy orange/yellow color with a medium white head. A spicy banana nose with some straw and fruit. The flavor is peppery, tropical at times, big banana, dry, big flavors and unusual. Decent.
