FlacoAlto (3759) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - DEC 31, 2012
A soft pour into my Bruery tulip produces a five finger thick, almost overflowing, excessive, amber tinged, tan colored head. The beer is a deep amber color that shows a brilliantly clear, bright amber hue when held up to the light. The aroma has a berry and citrus like fruitiness to it that is backed by some sweet tea, English biscuit, and brown whole grain cracker like malt character. There is a sharpness to the finish that seems a touch off, but not overly so.

The beer is a touch sweet, quite fruity with a melon like note that gets a little bit funky towards the finish. The funky fruitiness is the predominant character here; there is a backing, subtle, crystal malt character that leans towards toasted brown crackers, and touches of brown sugar. There are some higher alcohols, lots of esters, and just a general almost rotten fruit character to the flavor. The body is a bit light, but not overly watery.

Definitely not good, it is interesting that a brewery can be around for so long and not figure out basic sanitation; most of their beer is likely consumed on site, so they donít really notice, but if you are going to send beer out, you got to tighten things up a bit.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - APR 6, 2012
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine - Pours a deep amber color with a one finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is esters and a hint of phenols. Flavor is lightly sweetened malt, esters, and some hop spiciness. Medium body. Not quite sure what to make of this beer. Itís OK. Donít think it would have much of a shelf life. Worth a try.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2011
Brown coloured beer with almost no carbonation and a small off-white head. Light malty and fruity hinted aroma. Medium palate. Finish is rather light, short wattery with a malty hoppy short touch. Rather medium.

dcschiller (2203) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 9, 2011
(12oz bottle from Total Wine Desert Ridge). Pours clear amber color with tan head. Active carbonation. Aroma has caramel, florals, and cracker. Taste is sweet with light bitterness. There is some metallic notes as well. Medium bodied with slick texture. This is not a good beer. Maybe an infected bottle?
