2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden color with a diminishing, slightly fizzy off white head. Mellow sweet aromas, with light brown sugar, mild pineapple, dried apricot, hint of vanilla, and other light fruits. Has a Christmas stollen aroma. Very sweet flavors. Has a mild cidre feel. Mild candied cherries and pineapple again come to mind. For all the sweetness up front, the finish is quite dry and not as sticky as I expected. A mind cream soda linger. Most interesting, if not exciting ale. I was somewhat hoping the sorghum flavors would have come out more. Instead this has fruit beer flavors.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2005 GABF ’05, bottle. Clear yellow body. Light pale malt sweetness in the aroma, a hint of peach perhaps. Very light flavor - biscuit malt, romaine lettuce bitterness, more of that light peach. Boring yet well done (no obvious flaws).
