3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours translucent (very hazy) apricot-coloured; the head is off-white and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: sweet malts, honey, lemon-zest, pepper, and slight coriander. The taste is light sweet that finishes medium dry; there are notes of: fresh grains, honey, lemon-zest, and a floral note. The palate is medium-full bodied, high carbonation (big foamy mouth-feel), and has a medium finish. Overall, decent at best - just like the show...

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle into a goblet. Pours gold with a huge, persistent white head. Aroma of grass, candi sugar, lemongrass, a hint of orange. Taste is fairly sweet with a bit of lemon and orange. Finishes candy sweet. A bit too sweet for warm weather.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with full head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of yeast, apricots, dried bananas and white pepper. Tastes are similar, just like a Belgian Triple, though ABV is not as high. Heavy carbonation, pretty much strips the tongue.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL Bottle. Murky blonde body with a rocky - fizzy white head settling to a foamy film leaving some lace. Aroma of sweet light malts with notes of apricot and butterscotch and a sharpness about it that "gets it way up there". There is a complex as well as intense flavor of grains and dark fruits, a rum - like aftertaste, and then a fleeting butterscotch finish followed by a linger of cantaloupe. This is pretty strange brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 750 ml bottle from Top Hops, 6/21/13, I’m a few weeks late on the DVR catch-up, but drinking this as I finish off Season 3!
Aroma: The aroma has lots of citrus and spice, some pepper, clove, and a little bit of hop
Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden color with a large froth of white head that leaves fairly thick lace
Flavor: The taste is mildly sweet, with lots of spice, and a decent amount of bitterness as well
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a fairly fizzy carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
This is actually a really nice beer. The spice and the carbonation are the two dominant components in my mind, but the other components compliment the spice nicely. The heavy carbonation does hurt the drinkability a bit, but the overall, it is a tasty beer. Good stuff.
