3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice white wine like aroma. Large dense white head with good staying power. Crystal clear golden color. Smooth with an interesting tangy flavor. Its almost like a malty tasting mild champagne. This gets high marks for its unique qualities.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a nice clear gold with a HUGE marshmellow head. Aroma of tart green apples, yeast and alcohol. Highly fizzy mouthfeel. Thin tart flavour with a bit of malt, sliding into a bitter hop finish with a bit too much alcohol coming through. Gave me a Barney-style belch after almost every mouthful.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Banana/apple yeast aroma. Crystal clear golden-yellow colour with thin yet towering and stable white head. Thin bodied, mettalic tasting. I can’t stress the thinness enough. Flavour is on the sweet side. Not substantial enough for me.

Mountainous Head. Aroma has a sharp bite to it. Dry in taste. Very sharp and spicy yet smooth. Very fine brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big head, but not out of control. Bright golden body writhes with steaming bubbles. Aroma is Juicy Fruit, lemon peel and a time bit of spice. The flavor is slightly tart. Unlike most triples, you can actually taste the dry, hay-like malt. Usually yeast byproduct flavors overwhelm the malt. The finish is dry and short. The flavor is a bit mild but bright and easy drinking. The mouthfeel has a distinct bite to it.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2003 To all the wine snobs out there, here you go. Like a fine cabernet sauvignon or chardonnay and dry champaigne, very acidic and wine-like. Dry and zingy with a spicy twist. Beautiful head just like the picture shows.
