3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle into a shaker glass; served cold.
Aroma: A little sour, definitely malt-forward, some mild clove. Pretty gentle.
Appearance: Clear, dark gold body with a lingering, creamy head. High amount of visible carbonation. Little-no lacing.
Taste: Malty. The agave sweetness is very subtle but adds a nice twist. Again, mild clove flavors. Straightforward. Slightly sweet, slightly spiced.
Palate: Medium body, medium amount of slightly prickly carbonation. Moderate length on the finish, ends on slight bitterness.
Overall: Nice light flavors. You have to look for the agave, but itís there, and it plays nicely with the low-key spice flavors. I wish it werenít hidden behind a kind of over-powering malt profile, but it is a nice ale regardless.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from BevMo, Phoenix. Not a strong aroma, but there is some grass and sweet honey-like notes. Pours clear golden with a very thin, white head and scant lacing. Grassy with subtle fruit flavors to start. Finishes dry with honey-like sweetness that melds with some earthy flavors. Kind of an odd assortment of flavors, but it's not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma reminds me of a Kolsch funk with some light sweet caramel that is a bit like "Rochefort 10" and some grass or hay on the end. The appearance is golden with minimal foam and no lace. Taste is a mild grassy hop bitterness followed by a light sweet caramel, almost dark rum flavor. The palate is ordinary. Overall, above average, but I believe for the style it was a bit too bitter, the texture needed help, and Iím uncertain of if the Kolsch funk was intentional as that can be an indication of accidental oxygen introduction.

Bottle. Clear orange. Nose of yeasty funk, slightly sweet. Thinnish mouthfeel. Notes of corn stand out a bit too much. Very, very subtle Belgian yeast.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle poured to pint glass. Deep yellow. Lots if honey flavor, which I assume is the agave with some grassy notes and faint spice. The Belgian hints are subtle but add a nice detail. A touch of metallic aftertaste. Don't remember that when drank on draft at the brewery's taproom.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2013 16oz draft 9/1/13 (Copper Blues PHX) Pours a mild amberish golden with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, Blue Agave, and citrus. Taste of the same with some coriander, lemon and yeast coming thru on the back end. This medium bodied brew is different but still tasty.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I liked the aroma a lot, but the taste just wasnít that good. It pours a nice bright yellow color with a big head. It has a great fruity aroma that could double as perfume! The taste is a bit bitter, as it should be, but itís missing balance - itís a little soapy, too. Itís missing the coriander or other great flavors that define the style - the blue agave nectar canít save this one, Iím afraid. NEXT!
