3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz Bottle. It poured a clear medium amber with an average (1-2 finger) off white creamy head that offered up great retention, finally reducing to a long lasting thin cap and had excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma was extremely mild of a light grain malt, mild herbal hops and a light earthy yeast with notes of caramel, a bit of spice and a light fruity ester.
The taste was very different from the aroma. It was bold, very malty and a tad sweet with a big note of caramel that lasted throughout, with the finish having a mild fruitiness and a small bite of spiciness towards the end. The flavor hung around for a decent amount of time proceeding the swallow, with a nice sweet malty taste that was left to linger on the taste buds for a while longer.
Mouthfeel was just under medium in body with a creamy yet mildly dry texture and a soft carbonation.
Overall I was rather taken by surprise with this very impressive organic Amber Ale. It possessed a ton of flavor and an awesome drinkability. This is most likely is the best organic beer I have tasted to date...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 12 oz bottle at a random Bonefish near Fort Lauderdale, 7/25/13
Aroma: The nose is boozy and malty, spice, earth, seems a little off
Appearance: This one pours an amberish color with an average sized off-white head
Flavor: The taste is similar to the nose with malty and boozy flavors
Palate: The body is medium, it doesn’t have a great drinkability, and it has an odd finish
I thought this beer was a little higher in ABV. Anyway, it wasn’t a favorite for me. It really just felt flawed on the whole.

Opens up like a canadian pilsner at first. Then the aroma of spices and fruit expand out of the mouth of the bottle. There is no foam head at all and the color is ner brown. The taste is sweet with no lingering effects of spice. You can almost taste a slight dash of cinnamon near the end.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours amber with white thin head. Aroma of heavy Belgian yeast fruity, funky, with malty toasted notes. Taste is slightly sweet malt caramel hints. Spicy floral and a tad bit of funk you’d expect from a Belgian. Light body good carb. Alot going on with the malt hidnimg some of the yeast flavor. Not bad but not great.

Not impressed. Weird malty taste mixed with a light Belgium test make it a definite pass.

Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a clear amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of grain with light sweet fruits and a bit of backing nuttiness. Flavor begins has light fruits and sweet grains up front with a note of nuttiness coming out in the finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a red-caramel color with a medium sized foamy off white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweetish with a sour caramel presence and touches of dark fruits and vegetal malts. The flavor was tangy and sour with faint caramel, dark fruits, vegetal malts and canned mushroom juice. Long sour caramel and vegetal finish. Medium body. Disappointing.

malty aroma, slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Hoppy and malty flavor character, but more malty. Sweet bread like in the finish with a pleasant bitterness. Very enjoyable beer from my home state.
