1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz Bottle, purchased at Wakefield Liquor - Wakefield, RI. Signature green onion, lemon, and cat Summit aroma shines through. Not bad. Wow. Texture is a seltzer and cooked pizza onion bomb. Cardboard and onions that have been soaking in water with a splash of Worcestershire sauce. The Summit hop flavor is terrible here and it doesnít help that the base is practically colored bubbling water. Iíve been trying to work through the Peak catalog because I want organic to work, but it doesnít help that Shipyard keeps making a mess out of all the beers. P.S. I didnít think this could get worse, but now it just tastes like the worldís worst dried out chocolate malt milkshake.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Amber pour with a short, spotty foam head. Aroma is strong citrus notes, light pine and floral hops. Taste is big citrus, floral hops, tropical fruit notes and light caramel. Body is light-medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more citrus, light pine, tropical fruit, floral hops, sweet malt and light caramel. Wasnít expecting the hop bomb that I got but this wasnít too bad!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy amber coloured body with a thick, dense off-white head. Aroma of malt, vinegar, cardboard and very little else. Light-bodied; Assertive effervescence; Strong hops up front that fade almost immediately to a cardboardie and almost soapy flavour with some malt following behind and a dash of earth. Aftertaste all of a sudden reasserts the hops which are actually pretty strong and almost metallic. Overall, an interesting beer - not necessarily a fall beer in my opinion, but shows some good hops and deep flavours for the season, which isnít bad. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Oliverís Beverage in Albany, New York on 18-November-2011 for US$2.55 sampled at home in Washington on 07-February-2012.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Peak Organic Fall Summit Ale is a very clear amber ale with an off white head that fades to a bubbly splotch and leaves nice lacing on the glass. It smells delicious. Itís all hops, spicy and fruity. Itís kind of sweet in the nose, with notes of orange, taffy and... I donít really know! Itís a solid and bold aroma. One whiff makes my mouth water. Itís pretty light bodied and soft. It seems a touch watery, but the finish is dry. It tastes a lot like the aroma, but not sweet and a little more complex. Itís resiny and toasty. Thereís an orange peel flavor that lasts into the finish, where itís joined by juniper to fade slowly after the swallow. This just goes right down. What a great session ale it would make.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not too bad, one of the better organic beers Iíve had. Warming caramel and biscuity flavors, a little citrus hop is barely detectable but provides a contrast. Appetizing, and a good partner to food. Copper-brown color, smallish head.
