3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A light golden ale with a frothy white head giving off great aroma of sours and fermentation. The clean smooth beer lets a lot of fermented fruit notes come through.

Bottle shared by swoopjones @ Bidwell. Cloudy medium tan, solid head with floaties. Nose is twangy malt, yeast, some undefined fruit & green apple notes. Flavor is much the same, but a bit stale. Twang increases in the finish, along with green apple character. Eh.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 mL bottle served in tulip (1st of 7 from Grapeview Market- RIP)- poured a heavily turbid non transparent faded golden straw color, heavy carbonation, frothy off white head formed with minimal lacing. Aroma of yeast, straw, earth, yeast, and some grass. Hits the mouth with a low-medium body, malt is there but is very light, hearty various spice and dark fruit notes bombard you taste buds in the middle, finish continues with the spice notes as well as some dryness. Interesting take on the style, and good brew.

(Old BA rate - bottle)
Poured with frothy, foamy white head with good retention. Lightly hazy orangey-yellow color thatís vibrant. Yeasty; orange and citrus aromas; some grassiness as well. A bit flowery; yeastiness comes in mildly; citrus fruit. Pretty nice. A bit chalky for me; very vibrant carbonation. Thinner body overall, though. Really drinkable, but basic

From bottle at Najaís, thanks Jay! Color is light amber-strawberry. Aroma is buttery, diacetyl, caramel, cherry, vanilla, hint of sourness. Palate is smooth and creamy, flavor shows dried peaches, cherry, vanilla, clove. Good depth of flavor. Good drinking, bit sweet.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Itís hazy, red-brown with a small, creamy head. Itís has been in the cellar a few years now. The aroma is spicy with notes of citrus and malt. The mouthfeel is fizzy. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of malt, fruit, yeast and citrus. The overall impression is a flawless beer as such, but the body is rather thin.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a somewhat cloudy golden yellow color with some ripe banana hues and a two finger foamy white head that lingers for a while before settling into a lasting ring that leaves spotty lacing. Visible carbonation bubbling up.
Estery crisp golden fruit aroma with hints of apple and pear as well as some bready yeast, spicy zesty pepper, and citrus lemon peel.
Pretty carbonated up front with a clean bready yeasty medium body. Estery fruit notes, mostly apple and pear, along with some ripe banana notes, creaminess, alcohol warmth and a dry finish.
