2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Available at Mug’s Belgium2Brooklyn event. This had a sweet, root beer-like taste - probably due to the maca root they use. The first I ever heard of maca root was from this brewery. Notes of bourbon and vanilla, and a warm finish. Too sugary, imo.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours a copper colour with a small head. Aroma is that maca root that they love putting into all of their beers, sugar, and citrus. Taste is rather sweet, with a bunch of that root giving it an underlying earthiness. Lots of nutty flavor. Definitely a sipper, because of the sweetness. I would have liked to see this be more dry, but that is a matter of personal taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pouring at TAP-NY. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Soft musk, spicy and sweet caramel on the nose, toasty and warm musk. Medium bodied, nice clean mouthfeel with a little sweetness and crispness to it. Soft maca starchiness, which after trying a few of these I’m starting to pick out better. Sweet and a touch of light alcohol warmth on the finish with more gentle yeasty musk.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours light golden with a white head. Aroma of light spicy yeast, some pale and caramel malts, an unpleasant fruitiness, and light hops. Flavor about the same. Average texture. An ok beer, this might be a bad bottle.
