4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy orange amber, pours with substantial head that quickly reduces to thin coating with attractive lacing.
Light grain, grass and herb aromas with hint of spice, which maintain in glass with yeasty and malt notes. Creamy and medium-bodied with good but controlled carbonation.
Balanced palate with very slightly bitter rye finish, a real representation of autumn harvest flavors.
Very sessionable in both restrained taste and 5.8 percent ABV.

Pours a hazy caranel color and has a huge head that poured over the side of the glass. Malt and grain notes, with a bit of citrus flavor as well. Very good and multi-layered.

This is a super fruity beer, a golden ale I’d say. Looks nice. Orange-brown. It has a touch of hops in the body but not in the finish. It’s good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, poured into a shaker. Sweet citrus and berries hit the nose with a light grain touch. There’s also some bread crust and a slight funk. Sweet caramel syrup comes through as it warms up. It’s a slightly hazy, orange brown beer with a dense, foamy, off white head that retains a medium thick ring and fuzzy surface with light web lace on the glass. The taste is a medium high sweet and medium bitter. It’s a highly fizzy, slick, full bodied beer with flavors of marmalade and toast coming through. Sweet caramel apple flavors come through as it warms. The finish is crisp and dry with lots of rye. The toasted rye aftertaste lingers with some hints of orange soda too.

I don’t know, it’s just something I can do without. Nice sort of banana bread thing going on, but I’ll pass. 12oz bottle.

Bottle. Hazy dark amber color with large spongy white head, slightly doughy hops aroma, medium carbonation, somewhat astringent rye taste, long finish. Quite an interesting brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy bronze with a poofy, off-white wheat chaff head. Spicy nose that seems to definitely have Belgian influence (clove), and that is also replete with wheat and Barley and rye. Quite appealing and bready. Spicy rye flavor with a fullnews made from wheat and barley. Proteinaceous, thick and lovely. Belgian phenols and esters thicken the bready accents. Almost veers into weizenbock territory. An apt reward for a successful harvest season.

Not a fan. Bottle to glass. Slight fruit and grain in aroma. Taste was a letdown. Too much hops. Too strong not blended
