3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy yellow appearance. Slightly tartish aroma - citrusy and yeasty. Bosy is spritzy, sweet, fruity and overly yeasty. Not bad, could do with less yeast.

Damn this was good. At first, I thought of Bell’s Oberon... it had the same sweet feel, taste, and aroma... but the Belgian style kicked in and made it a more fulfilling beer. Excellent choice.

fruity and a bit of alcohol on the nose. Pale orange in color, head is getting close the the bleached color I desire. buttery and sweet with a sugaryness. A bit orange tasteing, dry with minimal hops.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A light citrus in the nose, yet weak, it pours into a slightly hazy golden pond. A big frothy head rises fast and drops to the floor pretty quick. It has a nice tree bark yeast taste, piney and spicey, hitting fairly strong but not lasting too long, finally ending a little watery around the edges. Not bad, this is a very nice bargain for the buck.

Very unusual and interesting. Light golden hue and nice foamy head. Aromas of dough, apples, and hops. Taste is hard to describe. Apples, bananas, yeast, spices, and bitterness. Slightly sweet and perfectly carbonated. For some reason there are also lager-type tastes and aromas. This is excellent stuff.
