3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Clear golden color with a soapy white head. There’s some nice citrus peel and clove aroma. A big of sweet bread and dough. Lemon zest, yeast, and floral hops. Pleasant nose. Flavor is a bit on the sweet side. Kind of a candied lemon thing going on. Banana, white pepper, and a hint of plastic. It’s sort of yeasty. Nowhere near as dry as I’d hope. Kind of disappointing.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from a mix pack from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours lemony gold with a slight white head. Aroma is sweetly floral. Med body or nearly. Flavor is very floral, with some light mixed fruit esters. Goes a bit earthy/yeast towards the finish. The hop is strangely complex - meaning I can’t pick out a specific type of hop. Tastes very different, but it’s very interesting.
