3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle) My seasonal choice in quest for the cup. Complex & woodsy aroma. Nice amber complexion with fluffy white head and long-lasting lacing. Flavors include clove, apple, orange & coriander along with multi-grains commercially described. Sticky finish. Very smooth palate. Well suited for the season.

Pours burnt orange with a off white head. Aroma is banana, earthy caramel and spicy. Taste is sweet and spicy. Medium mouth feel with a sticky finish. Solid, really enjoyed this as its perfect for the fall.

Looks like applejuice with a dense foam head. Smells funky kind of like still fermenting fruit. Sweet, juicy flavor with some leaves and earthy notes. Sort of like an Oktoberfest juice beer. Its pretty creamy and funky. Weird.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Poured clear, medium orange with a dense, very tall beige head.. lots of rising carbonation.. looked great! The aroma picked up banana, cloves, rye, and peppered earth over caramel and bready malts.. spicy overall and Belgian Ale-like.. very good. The flavor found a strong yeast impression (peppery notes, banana, white pepper, and slight musty earth) plus rye around a semi-sweet, mostly bready core.. finished spicy and very tasty. Medium-bodied with high carbonation on the palate.. creamy feel.. everything worked almost perfectly for me!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very festive hazy amber-orange, with a nice big off white head. Enticing, sweet aroma of wheat, banana, and rye. Taste is big on the fruity, banana sweetness, with a wheat backbone, a wee bit of smooth oat, and spicy rye on the backburners with good carbonation. Overall, a nicely balanced beer. Complex, smooth, and very refreshing; perfect for a crisp fall afternoon.

Nice harvest ale. The mixture of all of the grains really makes this a heavy and delectable affair. Thick and dark brown with woody aroma and a sweet and somewhat dry (rye) finish.

Bottle from The Hopster. Golden amber color with foamy head. Notes of clove, lemon, orange peel, coriander, hay, some piney hops. Not bad, a little inferior to Rare Vos.

Orange copper pour, huge fluffy white head. Smell of sweet roasted grain (NOT corn) and light Belgian yeast. Sweet, but not overly so. Creaminess that must be from oats is followed by a finish of spicy rye and hops. Good beer that does not shove itself down your throat.
