2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Disappointing with such a high rating I expected better. Smells sweet, too thin and carbonated for a sweet beer IMO. But then you loose the sweetness on the palate and its replaced with an awkward imbalance until you get the honey/nectar after taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in Jerusalem, poured into wine glass at room temperature. Exp date: 9/2016. Pours ruby or cherry red with a finger of head that’s slow to settle. Aroma is alcohol, hazelnut, sweet chocolate, cranberry, subtle vanilla, damp wood. Also getting the yeast. Taste is sweet upfront, resembles strawberry cake, pie crust. Cinnamon. Sweet potato. Mild hazelnut bitterness on the back. To be honest, not sure what’s happening at the middle. Carbonation is gentle to average, body is medium, no lacing. This is okay -- not compelling enough to really leave a lasting impression, though.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Large bottle purchased at Total Wine and Spirits by commonshawn. Shared for NYE. Lighter brown like a cherry cola. Tannish color. Maple syrupy aroma with some nuttiness. Taste is relatively mild but leans towards the sweet side of things. Nutty aspects come through with some bready and caramel qualities. I want so much more from this one. Just a little too mild which is not what I expected from this brewery.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Big bottle with commonmac. Plum with small white head. Sweet maple syrup nose. Syrupy, sweet, very much syrup. Thin body. A bit much in the sugar syrup and honey. Not enough depth. I expected better. Nectar is right.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is pronounced nutty, hazelnut light sweetmalt. Appearance is medium brown clear with reddish tints, small off white head. Taste is nutty/hazelnut forward, pleasant sweetmalt lingers, light herbal bitterness in background balances and blends well. Palate is medium light and crisp. Overall a very pleasant beer that does bring out nuttiness in a beer very well without tasting artificial. A fun beer worth a try.
