3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 22oz. A bit off-white head soon diminishing into a finger-thick size. Lots of clementine peel on the nose, citrusy, rather pleasant, rather one dimensional. A bit heavy on carbonation, full-bodied. Mostly clementine in the flavor too, Quite bitter, but not in an unpleasant way. Overall, an interesting one, but not the kind of beer I’ll return to. It’s too one dimensional for that. 120817

Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Huge head with excellent duration. Color is hazy golden. Aroma and taste are herbs, flowers, malt and hops. A little weird with that yerba. Not sure I like it.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into a tulip glass. Golden, cloudy with 1/4 inch head that quickly dissipated.
Smell: Citrus, strong grapefruit.
Taste: Slight hops, followed by light bitterness, little sweetness and ends with the taste of mate. The mate does not linger. All the tastes quickly move from one to the next without any standing out or being overpowering.
Very drinkable. However, I would quickly get bored with it. The inclusion of mate is the draw for this beer since it drinks as a very ordinary IPA or Pale Ale (both are listed on the bottle). The brewery’s website states that 12 oz. of this beer is equal to 1/2 cup of coffee in caffeine. I would have to drink quite a few though to get enough caffeine for a night out... coffee wins there. But it is still an interesting drink and worth trying.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Markhaven Summer Fun 2012. Hazy amber with a lasting white head. Herbal and grassy aroma, obviously from the tea, with a hint of malt and citrus in the background. Sweetish flavour with odd spicy and herbal notes, and a drying finish

Bottle @ Odense Tasting, July 2012. Pours clear golden with a white head and lacings. Tea-ish and herbal hoppy nose. Odd. Plastic and rubber like feel. Medium bodied. Not a fav.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and fully diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel with light tropical fruitiness and some grapefruit - piney hoppyness, light herbal spiciness (mate - caffeine?). Body is medium, malty and sweetish, some caramel and light tropical fruitiness, light grapefruit and piney hoppyness, light herbal spiciness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish with light caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some piney hoppyness, some sharp herbal spiciness, light alcohol. Finish has too much sharp herbal spiciness. IPA + mate = why?
