4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
2011 Vintage. Pours opaque orange with small white fizz. Smells peppery and fruity with hints of bitterness underneath. Tastes fruity, sweet malted with hints of pepper or funk, pretty much a solid tripel with some saison qualities. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and surprisingly soft mouth-carbonation, Holy Mackerel Panic Attack (2011) finishes with some slightly unpleasant sweetness.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is fairly strong, malty with a firm candy-sweet overtone and fruity hints. It pours a nice clear coppery amber with a decent off-white head that leaves some nice lacing. Flavor is quite strong and mouth-filling, fairly sweet but not cloying, malty and subtly hoppy with hints of caramel and cinnamon. Texture is fairly fizzy and fairly smooth, leaving a lip-smacking finish.

Ah Gordash, what have you got here? Pours copper – amber with gold hues and thin white head. The aroma is fruity and off kilter a bit, in a good way. I get prunes, cranberries, cherries and pineapple mixing with subtle and soft yeasty spices. The taste is starts with smooth prunes brightened up with raisins and near tart cranberries creating a pleasing sensation that is a bit palate cleansing as well as snappy and crisp. OK, I’m really diggin’ this. It picks up more raisins, brown sugar and yeasty spices toward the finish. Wow! Well done.

A lovely brew that pours a golden amber. Just the right amount of sweetness without being overpowering.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2012 This is great wheat, barley and yeast tasting beer. It does have any strong caramel or roast flavor. just simple, bold and good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Has a nice, smooth pour out of the bottle. The color is dark brown with a light orange tints to it. The carbonation seems pretty solid. The head seems thin, bubbly, and creamy. The retention is pretty decent as well. The aroma’s are pretty sweet. My first initial whiff I got vanilla and maybe even a little bit of cotton candy. Sort of unusual but it works. The ABV, which is 10%, is hidden very well amongst the sweet flavors. A very decent beer, now how does this on draft taste?

Pour is an amber with a small white head. Aroma is candi sugar with a very nice molasses. Flavor is also decent with a lot of candi sugar and molasses. The 10% is no where to be seen in this beer which could make this dangerious.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is sweet malts with hint of candied fruit. It pours a nice clear coppery amber with white head that had medium lacing. Flavor is quite strong, more malts and hint of fruit, alcohol in the backend. Nice finish and not too much alcohol in the aftertaste considering the ABV.

Cloudy brown-orange pour with thick head and good lacing. Aroma is very sweet with hints of yeast, spice, and citrus. Taste is candy sweet with very little discernible bitterness. Good mouthfeel. Clean finish. Very enjoyable.
