3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Hazy yellow with a large white head, somewhat frothy, that has nice retention. The aroma is wheat, slightly sour, and a distinct lemon candy scent. The taste is lemon candy (tart, yet very sweet), floral/herbal hops, yeast, and hay. Light-medium bodied, medium-lively carbonation, good round mouthfeel. This is just a bit too sweet for me. Seems a bit under-attenuated for what it’s shooting to be.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy, slightly dark yellow color, irregular but light head. Wheat, pepper aroma. Mimosa flavor (orange juice and champagne), and slightly like an effervescent toilet bowl cleaner (that’s not meant as a criticism, since some have some very nice odors). Tangy carbonation, reasonably thick, with alcohol tangs at the end. Generally a strong beer.

Clear golden with some floating particles and a nice white head. Fresh hop, lemon zest aroma. Pretty sweet - flavor has notes of lemon/citrus, plenty of grassy hops, wheat, orange juice and a little alcohol buzz at the end. Medium bodied with a smooth texture and subtle carbonation. Enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours pale golden, slightly hazy, large white foamy head, attractive lacing, with low carbonation. Subtle hop aroma, slightly sweet, and a bit floral. Sweet floral/fruity, subtle hop flavor. Seems somewhat of a Tripel crossed with an American Strong ale. Good body, moderate mouthfeel. Finishes strong, definite hop presence with the floral/fruity aspect still hanging in there. Tasty!
