3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle into a Belgian style tulip. It pours a nice amber color with a relatively large, dense head of foam. In the aroma I get a bit of green apple with some musty cherry wood complimenting a hefty malty body. The taste is kind of airy and drying leaving a noticeable impression of something with some age on it. A nice mouthfeel kind of reinforces the airiness. Its definitely a spritzy beer. One thay makes you want to burp on contact. Not too shabby.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Red pour with a huge head. Aroma of caramel and sugar. Some apple notes there too. Mouth is slightly watery. Taste has a very strange finish. Lots of sweet. Taste has some toffee in there. I’m not overly fond of this.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a pint glass. Two fingers of head, a hazy red/amber color body.
It has a rich malty smell. Not much else though.
Tastes of sweet malt, wet barley, mild bitterness. Tasty and hardy.
Lots of carbonation, medium body.
An enjoyable beer. Maybe a bit too much carbonation.
