3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a bright golden with a small white head. Aroma is spicy and a bit grainy with some hay and, a bit of a sweet light fruity character, some honey. Flavor is a bit better, the spiciness more pronounced, some of the fruitiness helps, a touch grapey, but still plenty of sweet grainy, bready notes. Finishes spicy with some lingering sweet honey and grain. Medium body and sharp carbonation. Kind of weird. Not fulfilling, a bit odd

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Falling Rock. Clear gold. Lavender and aspirin flavor, soft and smooth texture. Anise, peaches and hay in the nose. Sweaty notes of boozy/tinny peaches and spiced urine. Hrm.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Falling Rock. Pour is hazy golden with a thin, quickly relenting head. Flavors are typical of what I think of for BSAs. Sweet, bananas, and spices. Nothing outstanding, but there was a weird lemon flavor that came in on the back end that was a bit of a turnoff.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had this at the brewery around Carythedude and jakebra. Sweet aroma with some spice. Flavor is cloying and spicey, kind of gross. Really wouldn’t have this again.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Crushed with Jakebra at BSAF. This was one of the last ones I tried, so my notes are a little scratchy. I obviously didn’t like it, I can say that much. Just found it boring from what I can gather. For once I didn’t write anything about poop, however.
