3/20/12. One month until Berliner Bash on the Bay! 750mL bottle from Grassroots. Lightly hazed golden pour with a big, thick, pillowy off-white head that seems to last forever and laces in gloppy, sudsy clumps all over the glass. Doughy maltiness with soft, earthy hops, a bit of sweet fruitiness, spice, and a touch of cracker on the aroma. Lightly sweet pale malty flavor with a touch of tart fruitiness, light hop spice, earthiness, and more dough and cracker. Quite smooth and tasty... goes down really nice. Diggin’ it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma is full of grains of paradise, citrus and Belgian yeast. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of grains of paradise, coriander and white pepper as well as some biscuit malt, alcohol and orange citrus. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Poured from a bottle into glass. Golden yellow pour with a nice white head. Smells fruity, yeast, some bread, pepper. Clean flavor. Some mild belgian funkiness, some sweet fruit notes, banana, pepper. Nothing outstanding but crisp and clean. Refreshing.

Cork shot out like a rocket. Clear gold pour with a huge white head. Aroma was spice, bread, and banana. Taste was intensely spicy with some banana and citrus way in the background. Soft on the palate.

Poured a clear medium yellow with a huge head. Nose is clean as is the palate. Just sort of pedestrian blonde ale, nothing special.

Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 750 ml cage corked bottle. Dark golden, slightly murky with a bubbly white head. Aroma has a nice subtle spiciness to it, some lemony zest. Flavor is full bodied with a citrusy back end, some saffron-like spiciness, some yeasty notes, some passion fruit frutiness. Nice spritz to the mouthfeel. Pretty solid.
