1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, husks), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of metal, unripe peach, gum, ammonia.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, unclean, husky.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic.
Horrible...husks, metal, and ammonia in the nose, with an equally dirty, husky, and metallic aftertaste. Shameful.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear orange-amber with a small white head. Light lacing. Mild aroma; some tropical fruit and bread. Taste is semi-sweet and very slightly bitter. Medium bodied and smooth. Very easy drinking and surprisingly strong. Good, but for a collaboration brew involving two quality brewers, this is surprisingly nondescript.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 Shocked to find that its 8.2%abv. I would have guessed 6 or 7 most. Super easy drinker. Smooth. Balanced on the palate with an initial sharpness and soft finish. Where this offering fails big time is on the nose. Way too tight. Not much to speak of.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Appearance: clear golden with white head. Aroma: Iíve had breadfruit and it does come thru as well as the toasted papaya seeds (I know itís power of suggestion but really does fit)... floral hoppiness. Taste: dough, hay, cereal, grass, ends with a little caramel and citrus. Mouthfeel: thin with medium to high carbonation. Overall: itís not that good. Tastes very close to an adjunct macro style ale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can: Unusual aroma of bread, pencil shavings, sawdust, and triple sec. Clear amber, thin head. Lemongrass and thyme flavor with a pencil shaving flavor. Not excessively fruity. Medium body. Unusual, but not gimmicky as I expected. I would enjoy drinking this again.

From the can, hazy orange pour. White head. Bready malts with some tangy citrus. Itís ok, not something I would drink too often.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This not too surprisingly has an unusual fruitiness to it. If you would ever garnish a beer with a tiny paper umbrella, this would be that beer. Really quite tasty and points for originality.
