3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours yellow with a medium sized head. Aroma is flowers and wild yeast. Medium in body with a good amount of carbonation. Flavor is nice, like a fruit and flower cocktail with some yeast and funk thrown in for good measure. Alcohol is in the background and the finish is bread like yeast.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cloudy yellow pour with head that quickly thins to almost nothing. Very much a pineapple nose that is slightly sour and acidic. Flavor is that of musty sour straw and ascorbic acid bite, a bit like my compost pile smells in summer (not surprisingly since it would be musty straw); this is not a good flavor but the finish returns to a mild pineapple. Summary, smells good, tastes like funk, in a bad way.

pretty good overall, nice clean taste and finish, would definitely be refreshing were I working on a farm. Nothing wonderful but solid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is nice with lots of funk and cloves. Flavor is an upfront citrus followed by some dry malts and a bit of camomile. Decent take of the style I just wish the flavor was more funky like the aroma.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured a yellowish color with a white head. Aroma was pepper, spices, and fruits. Flavor was spicey, fruity, and had some malts. Sweet aftertaste. Very good seasonal beer. Can’t go wrong with a Great Divide.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
draft. hazy light yellow body, fine-bubbled white head. saccharine/soap/floral nose, light candy sugar, light note of moldy/sweaty bandaid. artificially sweet (splenda), potpourri/soap notes become overpowering after 4-5 drinks. on-par with all but one or two of their belgian beer, meaning it borders on undrinkable.

From the tap room. Pours a hazy golden color. Lots of yeasty aroma. The flavor is light an funky with a good bit of cloves. Not a very powerful flavor, I would like a little more strength, but overall a good beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Airy, lightly funky nose, tart and tangy lemon. Clean, clear light yellow body with a large, jiggly white head. Taste is very, very dry, tangy with mild yeast notes and bright golden malt overtones. Sort of nice, but wears out its welcome far to quickly.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Hazy beige color with a full white sticky head. The nose is floral with some grass, herbs and nice citrus and yeast notes. Creamy flavor and a spongy mouthfeel with some lemongrass and coriander notes. Right amount of funk and sweet citrus, I could use a little more sulpher, but it’s nice.
