3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at the Stillwater tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits last month. Clear gold pour with a medium white head. Smells sweet and syrupy, but there is some tart fruit and a little baby puke in there too. Flavor starts malty and a bit syrupy, then some tartness shows up before a musty and somewhat thin finish.

Bottle looks simple, but good. Beer in the glass deep golden, nice head. Starts strong, modest alcoholic, a bit sourish. Fruity notes of lemon. Finish still a bit alcoholic, but still nicely fruity. Not bad!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2011 This was a gusher for me. Normally, I’d be upset but it did fill my house w/ a nice fruity yeasty smell. Not bad. Naturally, it poured quite a cloudy blond orange w/ an huge foamy head which slowly sank down to a lasting quarter inch. The nose, as I mentioned is quite fruity, juicy banana w/ an edge of green apple tartness. Normally, I expect gushers to be flat but the mouthfeel on this is downright creamy. Full bodied but pillowy w/o being syrupy or oily. This a hefty beer, clocking in at nearly ten percent alcohol, but it is super drinkable w/o being disappointingly light in flavor. After expecting to be let down w/ a flat and sour beer, this turned out the be very nice.

Little cloudy dark yellow to orange amber beer. Thick off-white head, quickly reduces to thin head, then stable. Lots of carbon in glass supporting the head. Aroma: fruity, a little bit of green apple, yeast. MF: nice sparkling, medium body. Taste: sour apples, yeast, sour berries, a bit of sweet malts. Aftertaste: sour pineapple and some hops. Ok, but you have to know the beer is supposed to be sour, I though it to be infected at first.

Bottle. [thanks Søren/Feldthaus]
Clear pale golden, slight haze. Small, bubbly, white head. Looks a bit like a citrus soda-pop. Aroma is sweet, vinious, green apple, mild sherry, pineapple, biscuity malts. High carbonation, actually kind of thin mouthfeel - especially for the ABV. Flavour is fairly elegant. Good green apples, some fine maltiness balanced by good yeasty notes. Pineapple and mild bitterness in the finish. Actually quite good for a citrus soda-pop :o)

11.2 ounce bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with a half inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both OK. Aroma is sweet malt, lemon peel, grapes and some grassy and floral hops. It’s a nice aroma, but it’s also a bit weak. Luckily the taste is stronger than the aroma. The beer tastes like lemon and orange peel, honey, peppery spice, white grapes and a bit of sour apples. There’s also a slight bitter/sour finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit creamy and is well carbonated. Drinkability is alright, I thought it wasn’t hard to drink at all. I thought this was a decent enough brew, definitely worth trying.
