3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle.... Hazy, light golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. The complex nose is spicy and woodsy with lots of grain, coriander phenols and bread... lightly acidic. The flavor is woodsy with moderate pungency, lightly sweet with mild spiciness (coriander phenols). Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes grainy, tangy and dry.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle @ Dan’s house. Not much head when poured. Clear, golden orange appearance with a small white head. Very tangy, orange fruity, bready yeasty, richly fruity aroma. Slightly boozy, bready, almost cloying, sugary, orange citrusy flavor. Noticeable alcohol. Some oxidation which I guess isn’t too surprising, as this bottle is probably two years old. Not horrible but it was way too expensive for the quality.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Alan’s HSC initation. Bottle from Jungle Jim’s. This beer pours a mostly clear yellow-gold color with a minimal white head that is gone quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. The aroma is sweet with notes of yeast and wheat, plus some tart fruit and spice. Medium-bodied with flavors of wheat, sweet honey and sour apple. Yeast is present at times as well. The finish is mildly spiced with a wheaty aftertaste. Decent overall, but honestly not worth the extravagant packaging.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Blind Tiger. Pale golden lightly hazy with a thick white head. Aroma is lightly spicy but with a distinct fruity apple/peach aroma as well. The flavour is lightly fruity with a honeyish sweetness and a bit of herbal character on the back. It’s way too sweet but the malts are fairly authentic. Lightly spicy. It’s okay.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice nose of burnt bananas, bread crust and sweet banana pudding. Sweet up front turning to salty and dry on the back - good hearty dry texture in the finish, with some light biting hops. Mellow yeast flavor present as well. Very good stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from State Line. Turbid golden pour with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of funky bready malt, barnyardy hay, tart fruit, hops, and some unwashed female asscrack hints. The flavor was tart, fruity, funky yeasty, with bready malt and finishing hopcitrus. It got pretty tart at the end, approaching a sort of saison/lambic/tripel hybrid.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thanks Aaron for the pour! Pour is fizzy orange yellow, slightly hazy, thin to no white head. Aroma has notes of some grape, pear and slight peach notes, some off sugary candy notes with hints of bready and biscuity malts, no spice in there. Taste is some sweet candied fruits with pear and lots of grape notes, hints of some biscuity bread notes, getting to a touch of ethanol, finishing very sweet. Eh.
