Bottle from Greenís. Clear pale yellow pour with a nice big white head, great retention. Aroma was fruity yeast, light sour, some bready malts and hay. Flavors were yeasty, somewhat fruity, dry with a tart finish. Mouthfeel was thin, good bit of carbonation. I must say I didnít enjoy this one.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a hazy orange with a fast dissapearing white head. Aroma is sugary sweet with some honey and citrus. Flavor is over the top sweet with some sour apple. Finish leaves some butterscotch on the tounge. This is a wierd beer and the sweetness drags this one down. The 9.8% is no where.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2 oz bottle into a tulip at Hopleaf...The beer pours a nice medium honey gold with tons of carbonation. At least fourt fingers of creamy thick head, had to pour three times...Great retention, as it falls, falls in chunks, nice lacing...The aroma is all yeast, a little honey, pepper, very similar to Duvel with that tingly yeast on the nose....Taste is light, but very sweet honey dominates. Not any of the yeasty. This is crazy easy to drink at 10%, I basically chugged it. A little sweet for my taste but good overall.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2oz grenade bottle. Opaque, unfiltered orange-tan. Thin, patchy, oily head. I get a a fruity tone in the aroma foreign to most beers, almost candied strawberry banana. Quite a nice beer, relatively mellow mouthfeel, some delicate carbonation. Somewhere between a Tripel, Golden Ale, but with those fruity tones in the taste as well that really mellow it out. Almost like Imperial Cider, with the alcohol laced green apple notes. Interesting, unique beer.

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.
