Malty sour and sweet. A nice long bitterness.Caramel malted. Apple and a tad harsh. Lots of lace.. Perhaps a week or so beyond when it would be best freshly served. Suitably carbonated, at the brewpub

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap; dark copper/amber color with decent white head. Nice caramel malt and toffee/molasses?, with lots of apple and peach. Has the belgian yeasty peach character to it. Initial flavor is all sweet caramel malt with the fruits coming through towards the finish. Usually not a fan of this style, but this is very well done.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled on draught @ Kuhnhenn Brewing Company in Warren, Michigan. Deep copper color. Beautiful malt aroma bursting with caramel and toffee, cinnamon apples and light fruit. Texture is creamy and extremely smooth, perfect for a Maibock. Flavor is heavenly, well extracted and loaded with luscious caramel, apple and toffee malt flavors. This was a very good, serious rendition.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap: Cloudy orange, looks like its got some nice carbonation, poured a small diminishing head. Aromas are sweet and malty, apples, dates, oranges, and lots of bananas. Flavor is sweet but not syrupy, bananas galore, the slightest of hops, bubblegum and some alcohol as i warms. Light and slightly lively mouthfeel, but in no way watery or thin.

Tap. Sweeet and fruity aroma. Not much of a head, mild carbonation. Reminded me of mulled cider in taste. Little bit of a kick in the end w/ alcohol. Not bad!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap: Caramel and light apple in the aroma. Transparent orangish-amber with a small white head. Flavor is opposite of aroma with more apple and only light caramel. Some other fruits hide in the background, but I’m having a hard time telling what they are. Becomes a lightly sour and tart apple in the finish.
