3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden orange with a soapy white head. Grass, orange peel, banana, and peach. A touch of wine and oak, lightly tart, and some sweet bready malt. The flavor is kind of all over the place, too. A light tartness, some sweet bread, citrus, and lots of fruit. Grass, peach, and floral notes. Not bad, but kind of odd. At least it’s better than a lot of the other kitchen sink beers.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 c&c from Wine and Cheese in Clayton, MO. Fortunately a store that’s in the "Footprint". Pours hazy orange/amber with a creamy beige head. Lots of things in the nose. I can differentiate fruit, oak and pepper. Med + body. Flavor is fairly peppery. There’s some oak. It’s dry and astringent. The honey is almost missing. Think I might get a little grape. But prickly pear? Maybe that’s a fruit thing. There is fruit. A little different - seems a bit earthy - I’d put this into the saison/bier de garde territory. I’m likin’ it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ Odell. Golden appearance with a white head. Somewhat toasty malty, lemon citrusy, light honey aroma. A bit spicy, moderate honey, sweet malty, somewhat light bodied flavor. Kind of a weird combination of flavors. I got a touch of the peppers but not a whole lot.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the Central OH BA Tasting at From The Vine on 06/02/2012: This beer is a hazy amber-copper color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, tropical fruit and oak. Medium-bodied with flavors of pineapple and citrusy hops plus some grainy malt and a touch of sweet honey. The finish is sweet and malty with a lingering fruity aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of bottle at the brewery, hazy orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of slight biscuit, some citrus and fruit notes with a hint of esters, some slight honey and a hint of oak. Messy. Taste is decent but nondeScript, some slight biscuit, bready notes, touch of sweet honey, esters in there, touch of oak and a slight hint of chili, very misplaced. Overall a messy beer but nothing really wrong with it.
