3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a three finger tight, white head that fades very slowly leaving a good lace. Cloudy light amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is funky sour fruit, flavor is sweet and tart fruit, Not finding any white wine flavors. High ABV is hidden. Warming. Good but not worth $23.99 for a 750ml bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Pours a cloudy dark gold with a fluffy head that subsides to a thin yet dense cap. A few visible pieces of yeast sediment float around the goblet.
Aroma: Faint white wine, vanilla, fruit, funky sour yeast.
Taste: A sharp vanilla tannic oak note to start, a white wine bite on the front of the tongue. Spices, banana and euro hops. Has a great subtle sour note that weaves in and out through the entire session.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with average carbonation.
Overall: I was blown away by this beer. Very well done, very complex, super tasty.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
After having tried the NBC Hop God and Apricot au Poivre, The bar has been set pretty high for this brewery. Lots of honey and melon aromas. Very rich palate. Flavor is fruity - pear, maybe, and honey. Good, but not as good as the other two. Still, I’ve been very impressed with this brewery.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle:   Straw in color, cloudy, large frothy white head, nice lacing.   Tangy, tart, vibrant nose.   Slight woodiness, rather floral on the tongue.   Fruity, bright, warming, alcohol isn’t biting but it is noticeable.   Has this peach/apricot skin aspect to it, along with some barrel aged character.   This is really intriquing.   Chardonnay aspects appear on the backside.   This is from Nebraska???   Almost has a meaty Tripel like appeal to it.   Body and mouthfeel are fairly full.   Finish shows some candied citrus peel like characters.   This one is really interesting.   Hard to fit this one into any particular category. &Nbsp Its like a Belgian Golden, yet somewhat like a big Saison, and then again like a Tripel.   Lots of depth to this one.   Happy to have tried a beer from Nebraska, moreso one this good!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… Hazy yellow ale with a large, frothy, white head. Grainy, pale malt nose with nuances of very old cheese and shoe funk. Medium to full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. The flavor is a bit too sweet, although the high abv is not at all front-and-center. Notation of honey. Subdued, tannic bitterness. Finishes crisp, mostly sweet, and then dry. There was an awful lot left on the table here as much more could have been done to make this baby interesting. Mundane. Bottle courtesy of Beerlando!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at the December Santa Cruz tasting. Pours dark gold with a foamy white head. Aromas of fleshy white stone fruits and white wine. Also some woody and floral notes. Peachy flavor with a touch of oaky butteriness as well as the unmistakeable chardonnay character. These guys threw a lot of stuff at the wall for this beer but somehow it all stuck. Very good.
