2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A golden body with a fast fading white head. Aroma had a nice malt presence upfront. It seemed to be overshadowed by a lemon and corn note. Flavor was of toasted malts and some wheat flavors. Overall it was dominated by an off putting astringency that I could not get past. Finish was smooth.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
I found this pretty unenjoyable. Overly sweet, fruity, odd spice flavors all in an unbalanced mash-up. Not for me.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
An average ale. Pours an orange with a light white head. Smells great, like red apples and a bit of pumpkin. Taste starts with some apple, but then nothing. Finishes empty. Had in the bottle.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a bottle nice cloudy pour of vanilla colored beer. Iíve got a special place for saranac beers. Yes, has a mild barely wheaty aroma. Does have a little of that ill ale attitude but for the most part its a somewhat enjoyable sizzly beer. Some medium bitterness builds on the sides of the tongue as the session continues. Not bad overall but could use a few manners.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Hazy unfiltered orange-tan. Thin, frothy, uneven white head. Kind of a dulled barny wheat aroma. Biting dryness up from leads to a grainy malt finish. Not really capturing the style of anything in particular, really poor executed hoppy American Wheat I suppose. Pretty bad, highly disappointing beer. Comes across like a cheap English beer after awhile..thin fishy malt tones.

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an attractive orange color with a slight head. Nose is kinda funky, and that comes through on the taste. Also has some caramel. Eh. Drinkable, but that is as far as I will go. I find many Saranac beers to be missing something - good efforts but seem to fall short of being great.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a light golden amber with a decent white head. Aroma of malt, grain, and caramel. Taste is malt, wheat, caramel, and a bit of citrus. Interesting.

Bottle - via Ale in the Mail. Pale straw color, cloudy. Very clean aroma. OK - no esthers at all (terrible for a wheat beer) - fairly hoppy with an interesting lemon finish.
