3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Hazy orange pour with beige head. Really nice, fresh aroma, fruity and slightly estery. Taste leans towards an amber ale, quite bitter and hoppy. Overall it’s an interesting blend but definitely heavier on the amber ale flavor profile.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I like the beer a lot, but I wouldn’t consider it a winter warmer due to the lightness in color and heavy hops. the white is too light and the red ale is just hoppy. The beer is really tasty, but not to style. Opaque red with a nice dry finish. Tap

A hazy amber body with a scarce white head that leaves lacing on the glass. Nose has notes of lemon peels, caramel and white pepper. Taste is quite sweet with a mildly bitter finish. Medium carbonation and fairly rich palate. This is a bit too sweet for my palate but the aroma is nice and refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beautiful amber brown with perfect creamy head. Really complex aroma, the banana amb bread from the wheat is noticeable, but so is the bread and caramel from the roasted malt. Also there’s some herbs and grass hidden in there too. Taste is medium bitter with some light sweetness, both distinguishable. It’s waaay too fizzy for me and it has a strong bitter finish. Overall a nice blend of two styles, though the ’witbier’ part of it is present in aroma, but not too much in taste.
