3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity, sweet but overall mild aroma, with some light melon and pear, a faint piney spiciness, honeyish malt sweetness and touches of herbal, leafy hop. Medium golden color, rather heavily sedimented (although an attempt was made not to pour all of it), with a creamy, fine and lasting head. Flavor is sweet up front, becoming fruitier (tropical) and finishing with a dash of acidity and faint peppery alcohol. Some lingering yeast esters and sweetness. Light, creamy mouthfeel. Lacking in complexity but reasonably satisfying, nothing is too overdone here. Enjoyable.

cloudy medium golden with the most particles i've seen in a beer. head is adequate, white and lasting. aroma is heavily spiced, quite fruity, with a yeasty sourness similar to granny smith apples. flavor is also very spicy, and moderately fruity with a warming alcohol mouthfeel. the sourness exhibited throughout, i could do without.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours with a two-fingered white head that fades slowly and leaves a good lace but pour slowly there is a ton of chunky bits and with the active carbonation it *looks* like a witch's cauldron. Cloudy amber color. Nose is sweet maybe bready. Starts sweet and crisp, finishes smooth but there is some alcohol in the background.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange/gold in colour with a large rocky head. The aroma consists of candy and spices. Flavours are sweet and malty followed by a dull smoothness. Needs more oomph.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden amber. Dashing layer of dense white foam. Juicy noble hop, table grape, and dried yeast aroma. Gentle perfumey wafts, phenolic esters, melon rind, clover honey, and pale malts. Very sweet and coarsely vinous. Soft, expansive carbonation. Firm body. Assertively malty start, paired with a hint of acidity and flowery tones, walloping powdery malts and dessert apples. Sweet, honeyish, and slightly musty with phenols resurfacing next to a yeasty, malty middle. Finishes boisterously dry and long with a tingly apple skin, perfumey hop combo. Musty and earthy throughout. A tad too sweet and acidic, but it’s very clean, appetizingly dry and chock full of subtleties.

And now something to cheer me up after a absolutely crappy beer and Badger game. Honey color with a cream colored nearly rocky head. Decent lace. Aromas of peaches and other light fruit, mild citrus, cookie dough and spice. Smmoth near oily feel. Light fruity flavors intermixed with a pale malt sweetness. Mild spice and citrus in the finish. An enjoyable light triple.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light amber color; nice perlage. Rubber nose; later there is an aroma of malt and spices. Thin body, not interesting, light malt; with a too simple finish, a bit oily.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yeast, citrus and spice. Cloudy orange, large custard head, fair lace. Full malt flavour at first, some breadiness, and bitter citrus as well. Well balanced, medium bodied, soft sweetness here. Lovely!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells of esters, a certain sharpness in the aroma, citrusy, corriander, orange peel, soft yellow appearence, with a white head. a slightly yeasty acidic flavor, corriander and citrus. nice palate, no particular weaknesses, much like a strong wit.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells of yeast, citrus, coriander, and a bit of banana. Appearance is good: hazy golden yellow with a medium quickly dissapating head. Flavor is reminiscent of a non-wheaty strong witbier. Dominated by a citrusy coriandery flavor.
