2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml bottle. Pours a thin head with some lacing, over a golden cloudy body....nose is some yeast, then that of a light apple cider, and then smells that are unpleasantly chemical which remind me strongly of hospitals....taste is about the same with apple and then organic chemicals, which linger.....mouthfeel is light and bubbly. My respect for malt or wheat as a basic ingredient has jumped greatly.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Smells like something used to remove paint from metal. More akin in the nose to turpentine than beer. And the appearance? Iíve seen more liveliness and intersting color in sewer water. Tastes about the same as it smells. Horrible, horrible, horrible. I may need poison control after finishing this. Only gets a 2 overall ícause itís still better than Buffalo Butt.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear orange-amber pour with a huge, fluffy white head. Aroma of yeast and mild citrus. Flavor is well, almost a tripel, with that odd sorghum twang going on in the background. Still, itís better than their dubbel, which was barely drinkable. Not as good as the real thing, but tolerable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Purchased single 500ml bottle at Cellars Wine & Spirits in Shorewood, MN. Pours a semi-hazy copper brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates clean. Aroma of golden grain malt, apple skin, powdered citrus zest and a touch of green vegetables. Taste is light to medium bodied, plenty of carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, a touch of hay, earthy spices and floral hops. Finish is gritty and metallic with some light fruit aftertaste.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy brass color with soapy white head. The aroma is strangely full of apples, with some faint spice, flower, and zest notes. The flavor is also heavy on the apple. There are some woody notes after that, then some spicy yeast. The mouth is quite tingly. It finishes medium-dry with a stale-ish floral note. Not particularly impressive.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Though I have been disappointed by other Green’s offerings, I decided to give this one a try, and I am glad I did.
Color is a clear orangy-amber, nothing special but not off-putting. Aroma is crisp and fruity, more on a cider than a beer, a little sweet but not cloying. Flavor is perky, fruity and a little sour, with a nice alcohol zing; it tastes like a mixture of cider and sake - different, and not in a bad way. Texture is smooth and pleasing, a teensy bit watery but not too shabby.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This poured a golden color with a large white head. The aroma contains a bit of lemons with some perfume notes. The flavor contains some cooked veggies, sour apples, sugar, and lemons. Overall this beer was odd but not horrid.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle... Hazy light golden ale with a small, wispy, white head. The aroma is very restrained. Sake, fuzzy fruit and ethanol are the only traces I can pull from the glass. Medium-bodied, lightly creamy and very effervescent. The flavor is a fruity, moderately bitter marriage of Perry and floral hops. Crisp, tangy, fruity finish.
