Interesting brew. It is basically an APA but with some aged character. There is a hint of bright citrus but itís tempered by a nutty sherry-like quality. This ends up working really well and adds a rich thick texture that makes this drink bigger than it is. Tasty stuff and pretty unique.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, split 3 ways, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of bready malt, light citrus and wheat. Flavour is pretty mellow, with bready malts, mild citrus, wheat, with some light lemon notes. Pretty mild and restrained, but refreshing and balanced. Good for the style, though obviously nothing extraordinary.

Tan, cloudy, only a thin layer of bubbles. Herbal, floral and a little bit perfumey in the aroma. Tastes a little bit oxidized with moderate bitterness and more of that floral, perfumey stuff.

500ml bottle pours a bright golden color with about 2 fingers of solid lasting white head which leaves some really nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is dominated by floral and citrusy hops. Taste is citrusy with a grapefruit like bitterness and a bit of malty sweetness and finishing earthy bitterness. A medium body and moderate carbonation leave a nice feeling on the palate. I really enjoyed tasting this one.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Outstanding aroma and appearance, but unfortunately the taste and the palatedo not give me the same feeling. The aroma is floral and citrusy perfume. The appearance is a bright golden crisp clear brew with an excellent clear hue of of golden sunshine. The letdown is that the flavor has a sharp pungent taste of hops and grass.

Bottle:   Straw in color, sediment lends to a hazy look, large rocky white head, very nice lacing.
Floral nose, slight perfume, a touch of butter, very shrub like.   Its like a mountain scrub brush, with berries.
Very interesting, and unique.   Mealy grassiness on the tongue, slight straw, a little forest like.
Very interesting.   Just cant get over the nose, the floralness and absolute fresh mountain shrub like aroma.
Has a smidgen of earthiness to it, more apparent on the backside.   Body and mouthfeel are fairly full
bodied.   For a Golden/Blonde its fairl malty.   Pale mealiness lingers, with a soft floral aspect, some of
this mountain shrub/herb like flavors.   Very unique and interesting, nothing else like this one.   Not bad,

Bottles from a store in Portland and a trade on BA a couple years ago. This was underwhelming, to say the least. Especially now that I have the lagered version. I remember the hops standing out a bit more in this version, with the spices being less prominent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, got it from Kokoman store. Orange. Mine poured with particulates, tiny ones. Head is stable and white. Fruity aroma, lychee/rambutan and loquat--the sweet white pulp fruits. Tastes a little stale. I am not surprised this is the old one, because it tastes old, rusty, and metallic. Still has a nice juicy body with fruity edges and a bitter finish.
