2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at From The Vine monthly beer tasting Oct 13th, 2003: Hazy yellow/gold color with a medium thick white head and thin lacing. Aroma of spice, clove and yeast. Fairly crisp with a bitter character and flavors of wheat, pepper, fruit and a little alcohol. The finish is very carbonated. I really was not too impressed with this one.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear, straw-colored brew. Frothy, white head with nice lacing.
Low marks for aroma. LIGHT STRUCK! I can't believe a brown-bottled brew is skunked. Otherwise, the aroma is of coriander and yeast. Smells like a high ABV hefe.
The flavor is well-balanced with warm alcohol, fuzzy fruit and banana. Full-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel. Long, spicy, alcoholic finish.
Overall, not a bad brew. A good one, actually. My bottle was way off as I have tried, but not rated this beer previously!

Very pale golden coloured, very long lasting big rocky white head; fruity (bananas; orange (?)) and a bit alcoholic nose with some hints of herbal hoppiness; very fizzy; sweetish, fruity, soft taste, dominated by some alcohol; turning into a long lasting, dry hoppy aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from The Epicurean. Pours a hazy shade of intense gold with a big, frothy, white head that lasts even through the repour. The aroma is heavy citrus, some candi sugar and barnyardy funk notes, and floral spiciness. The mouthfeel is lively but not dense, with flavors of spicy florals, citrus, some barnyard, and a dry finish.
