3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Muddy, almost opaque reddish-copper with a small off-white head. Aroma of lychee and other tropical fruit, cherry, bread and vegetable. Taste is unfortunately much weaker than I was hoping for. It’s fruity and slightly sweet with a very mild tartness. Medium bodied. Disappointing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a deep reddish brown without much head. Aroma is overwhelmingly passion fruit. Taste is more less a passion fruit beer. The cherry adds a little sweetness and a bit of tartness, which is what stays on the tongue. Tastes like juicy juice as it fades away with a citrus burn on the throat.

Mediocre beer which surprised me. This collab should have killed
It. Practically no nose appeal but it is aesthetically pleasing. Minor cherry hints, a tad bit your typical wheat beer enhanced by fruit.

Can: Weak dried leaves nose. Clear ochre, medium yellow head. Moderately tart persimmon and dried leaves flavor. Pleasant soft carbonation, refreshing. Not a hell of a lot going, but enjoyable.

can 7/26/12. bad ass label.
nice looking beer...hazy auburn with a soft off white tannish head.
it smells really fruity sweet....plums, cherries, caramel, alcohol and herbaceous notes.
tastes like a fight in a can...spicy, herbaceous, peanut buttery yeast, tart fruit on the finish. it is rather unpleasant, confounding and difficult to finish.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
This looked like a promising beer: a jolly pumpkin/maui collaboration with passion fruit and cherries in it? Served in a can? It sounds interesting enough to shell out 13$ on a 6 pack, which means as a parsimonious grad student, I am once again spending more on beer this week than food :( Unfortunately, the beer didn’t live up, and I don’t particularly look forward to drinking the other 4 I have left. For the price, I was expecting some yummy sour organisms in there. Instead, it’s a watery, lightly fruity cloudy brown wash with no head. Reminds me of a roggenbier I once had; not very exciting. Looks like iced tea. Smells like metallic grass with some passion fruit.. Tastes the same with a touch of fruit, watery. Bitter, metallic, lightly sour aftertaste. This is a beer to give to those I don’t particularly care for.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From tap at the Beachwood BBQ. Pours hazy orange to brown with a small white head. Aroma is toasted malty and light phenolic. Sweet, toasted malty and mild citric. Smooth fruity and crisp hoppy. Bitter and light toasted into the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy amber with a cream head. Nose is cherries, tart, fruit, and faintly sour. Nice palate, cherry, tart, heavy fruit, earth, and a smooth finish.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A cloudy, muddy red ale. The nose is very fruity, in a confused, over-ripe sort of way. It also contains a little wet tobacco maltiness. In the mouth there is a mass of fruit again with a good lilikoi tartness and a fat, weird sort of cherry flavour. Very dense. It’s vaguely unpleasant for me.

On draft. Wasn’t really tasting the intricacies of this one. It was slightly spicy, a bit of a brown ale. Nothing too special.
