2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can; poured an orange-amber color with a big frothy white head. Aroma of yeast, fruit, a touch of sourness, alcohol and herbs. Flavor was more muted than I expected, which was good because I don’t think I love the flavor profile. Some tartness, too aggressive yeast and fruit notes, with a rather short finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. I poured from the 12 oz can a copper color with a quick fading white head. Aroma is a earthy and of melon. Medium plus in body . Smooth in the mouth. The flavor is fruity, with melon and what I assume is the breadfruit. Finishes somewhat dry.

In bottle at Craig’s. Pours a blonde colour with a thin white head. Aroma of pine, pineapple and alcohol with a lovely fruity character. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lovely.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Approximately 3-4 oz sampler at the Brewpub in Lahaina, Maui. The pour is a light haze golden amber, with a light tan head. The aroma is light candy sweetness and a strawberry fruit character (that’s the breadfruit, perhaps?). The taste is big on the sweet fruitiness, the strawberry, along with a bunch malt, a bit of dustiness, and finally a touch of Dogfish yeast. The palate is medium bodied, quite dry, and natural sweetness throughout. Interesting, well executed.

Clear golden color. Small white head. Sweet aroma like orangejuice. The bite is sharp and bitter with a lot of sweetness and biscuit. Bitter bland finish.

12 oz. can from Total Wine - Pours a hazy amber color with a one finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is esters and spice. Finish is lingering esters. Flavor is the same. Medium body. An uneventful and disappointing beer. Do people really like these goofy beers?

Can. Pours hazy light orange with white head. Aroma has some pleasant fruity notes and light malt backbone. Flavor is much the same, slightly hard to describe. Light, soft mouth feel with high carbonation. Overall, is OK.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz can via Lubiere, cool, tulip. Clear deep golden with a fair off-white head. Sorta vaguely fruity with boiled cereals, faintly citrusy with light tropical notes, a bit dusty, a touch resinous, pleasant if a bit unfocused. Medium+ body with moderate, fine effervescence. Fairly fruity, alcoholic, reminds me of a Belgian ale, sorta bready and yeasty with a touch of spiciness, a touch tropical and citrusy, not bad; dry with some bitterness and a boozy, vaguely fruity finish. Lower abv would have been nicer. The beer isn’t bad, it just is somewhat unfocused.
