2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
There were several beers I tasted at PilsnerPeter’s gathering that were my first samples from that brewer, this being one of those. Growler. Pours a mostly clear reddish gold with just a bit of a pinkish tint. Pleasant aroma of malt and orange. This beer fallls apart in the flavor department, which features weak malt and Hawaiian Punch. Dries out towards the finish with light-medium bitterness. I hope my next beer from Pisgah is better than this one!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Growler at Peter’s NY gathering - lightly hazy reddish brown - man, this tastes like raspberry cough syrup mixed with some wheaty character and light belgian-ish phenols - quite sweet, adding to the syrupy character that reminds me of cough medicine - blah.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2009 On tap at the brewery. Pours a light pinkish with a violet hue , hazy and a nice lasting white head. Aroma is fruity with raspberries- slight tart cherry- and fruit juice but is also spicy with Belgian yeast- and a bit peppery, slight solvent and some wheaty cream character. Flavor seems a bit weak and watered down for a 8% fruit beer- some flowery notes- violet, then some weak cherry and rasp fruit cocktail with some wheaty and doughy notes- more spice and phenols in the end. Just seemed a bit on the bland side.
