3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours to a deep chestnut colored body with a super tall lasting foamy off-white head that looked like a Jolly Pumpkin Bam Biere when poured. A sexy lacing to boot. The aroma is heavy on the grains. I’d say it’s pretty wheaty with oats and Belgian yeasts like a light banana and pineapple. The flavor is very malty. The rye is first and foremost in the flavor. Some earthy spiced malts and yeasts. Subtle banana. The palate is spicy. Very creamy. I don’t know why they call this an amber ale... Unfortunately, the spicyness on the palate makes it a little harder to drink.

Nice cloudy golden body and crazy big SUDS. THE AROMA reminds me of a Belgium beer ( WTF is wrongwiththespace bar when using beer buddy???) very light on the palate but it has a bit of a bite. The barley, oat, etc is very powerful in the taste.

(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.

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.
