3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap: The aroma consists of honey, citrus, peach, and spice. Itís a transparent amber with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with honey, toffee, and fruit. The finish has moderate citrus hops with a touch of spice/pepper and alcohol. Itís medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Overall, itís pretty solid and by far the best Magic Hat beer Iíve had in years.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Lots of yeast aromas--cheese and wet leaves, with hints of bread.
Appearance: Clear bright orange with a rich tan head.
Taste: Light sweetness with a medium sourness to balance.
Palate: Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation, long finish.
Overall: Alcohol is a bit overpowering, and the complex layers that ought to be there are lost. Itís not a bad beer, but a bit one-dimensional.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Kind of a miss here. Heavy on the barley finish with some bitterness, some booze. Candied finish, a lot of booze. Too much sweetness. A lot of different aromas floating around, they just donít necessarily come together super well. Pours orangy brown with good head and lacing. Bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle. Hazy brown with a small, light brown head. The aroma is mild, but it does have the typical sweet honey and booze scent of a barleywine. The flavour is good, without being particularly interesting. Unlike, say, the Smuttynose Wheat Wine, Iím not sure Iíd have known there was wheat in here, if I hadnít seen it on the label.
