3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Clear medium amber with a long 1" ivory head, sheets of lace. An interesting "hybrid" brew that works on some levels, not on others. Taste is caramel malt that adds overwhelming floral hops in the palate, then switches to White Ale spices in a finish in which the hops won’t let go. The two sides remain strong, but they don’t agree with each other very well.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with off-white head. Nose is yeasty, candi sugary caramel malt, hops, fruit. Tastes yeasty funky, fruity, spicy, but not melded well. Decent, not great.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light orange body, some lacing, but not much head retention. Kind of a wheaty with a touch of citrus aroma. Taste is semi bitter but also yeasty and sweet. This is like a subdued weizenbock with a touch of hops. Not bad.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(Bottle) This is probably my least favorite brew from Great Lakes so far. Overall profile is like an imperial IPA, not like a belgian. Strongly bitter, very hoppy, with a very heavy malt. High alcohol content very evident in the aroma, and the alcohol doesn’t blend well with the other aromas, which are predominately a sort of herbaceous character from the strong hop presence. Leaves a heavy, bitter quality on the palate. Drinkable, but probably my least favorite beer from Great Lakes yet. I’d prefer a number of macro brews.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tap at Pete’s Place. Hazy gold pour with a medium foamy head that fades slowly. Aromas are bubblegum, banana, coriander and cherry cough syrup. Tastes like Belgian, cherry cough syrup. Really don’t like this. Couldn’t finish my glass.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ home, via trade. Pours a touch hazy golden orange appearance with a cream colored head. Aroma has a ton of banana and apple with a little bit of spice - white pepper, light clove, and nutmeg. Flavor is full of cotton candy, bubble gum, and banana. Moderate high sweetness. Medium body. Fairly high carbonation. A little gooey and boozy. Not my thing.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Cloudy dark gold with lots of floaties and a thick head.. Spiced Belgian yeast with floral and citrus notes, mainly orange. Kind of reminds me of blue moon on steroids. I really didn’t like this one at all and I wouldn’t get it again. I think they did a decent job with this brew but, it’s not my thing.
