3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a cloudy orange with a tall off-white head that became very creamy. The head dropped to about 1 inch fairly quickly and left some clingy lacing as it settled. There were plenty of bits od sediment suspended in the beer. There was a light floral aroma along with a bit of a roasted malt aroma too. The beer was effervescent with good carbonation. The initial taste was very refreshing with a hint of tart citrus, but more roasted sweet malt flavor was there. The finish became very mild.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer is a cloudy yellowish orange with black sediment in the bottom of the glass, and the aroma is subtly of dough and citrus with a prominent head. The taste is mildly sweet and slightly sour, and the palate is a combination of a light body, soft carbonation, an abrupt finish, and a creamy texture.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of nice sour apple, and spice. Pours hazy blonde with a huge head. Taste is funky up front but finishes like a bierre de garde. Pleasant.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not my favorite. The nose was light fruit and hay. Golden with a gusher white fizz. Semi sweet but in the mouth the barny funk makes its presence known, too much for my tastes. Medium to medium light body with a dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle serving. Pours an orange color and is a bit cloudy with a thick head that was a little rocky and lingered a bit with some lacing. Smells floral and of citrus and spices. Light mouth feel with a bitter, fruity and slightly sour taste from the brettanomyces. Thin texture that was a little sticky with a dry, lingering finish. Light and refreshing.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle on New Years Day 2013 with traditional southern new years meal. Dry, subtle spicing, well balanced bitterness, and a clean crisp finish. This cuts through a heavy meal well and clears the palate.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent orange colored body. The mild aroma was malty and herb. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of mild cloves spices and herbal. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A 2012, no idea of the age a few months I guess. Golden with a dark orange hue. Some spice and herbal hop notes. A little bit of Brett, but not too funky. Bread malts, some spices, lemon, orange and some Brett. Pretty decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crab apple, and lemon nose, with some weak honey notes. Clear amber, thick sticky head. Medium body, soft. Overripe lemon, funk, and dried leaves. NIcely balanced and not overly sweet or fruity. This is a bottle known to have a bit of age, which usually spells disappointment from New Belgium, but it held up remarkably well. I had it fresh and now and it didn’t change all that much.
