3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An orange beer with an extremely fast disappearing bubbly head. The aroma is sweet caramelic, and light notes of alcohol and hops, but also with a slight sour note - a little like sweaty feet. The flavor is sweet alcohol with powerful hop notes.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bronze colour. Aroma is raspberry, butter, earthy hops – holy Ringwood! Candyish flavour. Sweet and fruity. Astringent minerally note. Finish grows more bitter, but not enough to save it. Based on this and other recent Geary samples, I think maybe they’ve lost control of their yeast. This is ugly.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
An hazy orange amber ale with a thin white head. Lightly sprucey hops with light alcohol notes. In mouth, a dry IPA , not sweet, with very herbal hops, with the alcohol coming after, like drinking gin. Astringent. A tad unpleasant.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not significant head,golden colour, a good floral and spice aroma and spicy aftertaste. The golding and fuggle hops are understated. Appropriate carbonation. Cross style to a winter warmer. mouthfeel on the thin side.I am surprised this was on clearance at Belmont Part Goods in Dayton, maybe it was last year’s, but it was good value.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep copper with big, white head. Aroma of malt, hops, slight fruit and black pepper. Tastes malty, with subdued hops, slight spicy florals. Medium, non-inspiring finish. This one reminds me a little of a spicier Sam Adams BL.

Buttery oranges quarrying light hops worrying under the creamy yeast burying anything interesting from the quiet ending...This endeavour of subdued flour is in favour of faint peppery spiciness whilst being unable of any fervour...Apart from the fact that it is bottled for winter, I don't see what's wintery about this IPA/mellow Belgian ale crossover...
