3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at CBW AKA Minx. Poured cloudy copper color with an average fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex yeast and floral hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy tropical bitter hop flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration. This is a good beer that exceeded my expectations.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber pour with a tight white head. The nose is soft and the aroma is perfumy. The yeast really comes through. Chewy and a little bit earthy. Softly fruity with a nice sweet hoppiness and assertive bitterness. Minerally and fairly lean. Dry and well-balanced with a lot of nice fruit on the finish. A bit citrusy and tropical. Itís sweeter than the Ryevalry, but still dry. Soft Belgian fruitiness throughout.

Draft at Craft. Pours hazy deep coppery toward brown with off-tan head. Nose is caramel malt, hops, brown sugar. Tastes caramel malty, with ample hops, brown sugar, and an overall tartness that increases as it warms. Stays tart throughout, and malt-forward, with the hops backing things up.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap as Minx at Frisco Grille: poirs a clear deep copper bronze with a thin ring of white head. Has a sweet biscuity caramel malty nose with some light fruity esters and a healthy amount of grapefruity hops. Starts with rich lightly syrupy sweetness and toasted caramel maltiness with a good amount of resiny hop bitterness and some yeasty esters. Finishes slightly drier and bittersweet, pretty true to style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Madisonís as "Minx". Poured near-clear medium orange with a short dusting of white head. The aroma opened with warm fruity sugars, a pinch of oak, and Bretty funk.. vanilla and honey joined in too.. very inviting. The flavor found warm molasses and caramel at the core, with dry white peppery yeast laced throughout.. a little more astringent than the nose indicated.. long, spicy finish with honey supporting a hefty dose of catty bitterness and white spices. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate.. solid feel and flow.. good one!
