This beer really makes me appreciate saint arnold amber. The trappist yeast gives a sweeter, fruity taste. Some clove in there. Excellent beer

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was a special brew Saint Arnold was testing in Houston; only 4 barrels were made.
Draught. Deep cloudy amber color. Has some fruity notes to it. Smooth flavor, but not much of a finish.
Best Houston beer I’ve tasted.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at brewery.
Pours a lively glass yellow with a nice, white head and intricate lacing. Aroma is pruny cheddar funk, banana bread, rotten peach, and lemony melon. Flavor is bready malt, over-ripe banana, honey, and light pepper. Average mouthfeel. Not bad, but could be more assertive.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On cask at Petrol Station. Pours a cloudy orange with a small frothy white head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is yeast and fruit with clove. Medium mouthfeel with clove banana and much more drier than the regular amber in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transparent golden in the glass. Aroma of spice, cloves, and fruity banana esters. Noticeably drier on the palate than the regular St. Arnold amber when compared side by side. Interesting, especially in a side by side comparison with the original.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: Pours a cloudy light amber color with a white head.
S: Lots of coriander and banana to the nose with a decent breadiness. Lots of yeast and esters along with a bit of orange and lemon zest.
T: Taste is very zesty and peppery. The malt is pale and crackery and there’s some orange peel, coriander, and tons of yeast eters.
M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation.
D: Pretty light and easy to drink in terms of mouthfeel, but there are definitely some assertive flavors from the different yeast.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(draft at meddlesome moth) clear pale yellow, lasting crete tan head. Nose of white pepper, apple and Belgian spicy yeast. Taste of earth, dirty water, funky, apple. Creamy body but earthy linger. Easy to drink but an odd aftertaste.
