3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
As I recall, Ruthís a small beer of Fred, though if thatís wrong--well, you heard it on the internet. I am pretty certain it was named for (brewer) Doug Sprintsís grandmother. In any case, itís a wonderful session ale. Perfectly unassuming, yet it has a funky yeast quality that seems Belgian, though the brewery claims itís Wyeast Scottish, so go figyah. Dry and lip-smacking. A HoTD when you canít quite DO a HoTD. Or maybe a summer HoTD. Oh, I found it in the saison category, which is absurd.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Cloudy apricot yellow with less than half a finger of off-white ring. Aromas of citrus, floral notes, bitter notes, tropical fruit. Tastes of grapefruit citrus, wheat, bitter notes. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Low carbonation. Not terrible but Iím not really feeling this one, bad batch perhaps?

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub - Pours golden orange with a bit of haze and a white head. The aroma has toast, creamy malt and some earthy hops. It has a medium smooth body with a bit of a bit and fairly soft carbonation. The flavor starts off with earthiness, toasty dry bread and orange zest. The finish adds earthiness and pine. Really nice APA.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle to snifter. pours a very pale yellow color with no head. nose is lightly grassy with a touch of dankiness. taste is initially sweet and then reveals a bit of bitterness and a very grassy hop flavor. not much malt character, just a little note of honey. I donít think I care for the hops profile. very lingering and unpleasant. Just doesnít do it for me.
