2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber pour, white head. Aroma is grainy, very light fruits, lagerish yeast notes. Flavor is grainy, yeasty, not much going on with the fruit. Boring and a bit of a bummer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can thanks to maxxxxxdaddy. Golden pour. Notes of strawberry in the nose. Flavor hits first of passionfruit but overtaken by banana and lager grains. Grainy finish that interferes with the parts I liked.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Van from Papago. Poured into my JP/Maui collaboration glass courtesy of Rayl101! Pours a hazy amber color with a fluffy eggshell head. Nice lacing. Aroma is wheat, malt, and some fruit. Taste is quite malty in the vein of fat tire with some light fruit. Medium bodied. Not really what I was expecting. Too malty and less fruit for my liking.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: can at Fire Works Leesburg. Pours a hazy reddish brown with a large tan head. The nose reminds me slightly of a flanders red with less tartness and more sweetness. The flavor is oxidized cherries, slight passion fruit, a little sweet malt up front, slight nut or dark bread notes. Light body. Okay.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
20120708 12oz can from Wine World. Clouded dark amber with lasting tan head. Aroma is twigs and berries, like the prunings from an orchard, with some soaking beans and uncrushed cherries. There’s a constant theme of anticipation with this one, like there’s something great to come just on the next sip, but it never happens. Unless you’re into the flavor of rotting tropical fruits, this one’s never happening. Dry, harsh, twiggy, and laughingly $16 for the 6 pk. I’m sure passion fruit or whatever is expensive, but this beer is an insult.
