3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a snifter. Light golden color, still not quite transparent. A nice finger and half of head that held nicely.
A muted aroma of yeast, bread, banana, and other ripe fruit.
It tastes fruity, mildly bitter in the middle and a sweet ending. Fairly standard for the style.
The texture is sublime. Soft, so soft. Like drinking velvet. Low carbonation and medium body.
The taste was the runner up here. It felt amazing and looked and smelled good. The taste just was not up to the same standard. Well worth trying for the texture alone.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pour into tulip glass from the brewery. Aroma is yeast with a candy-like sweetness, mild bubble gum/fruity esters and a bit of citrus. Appearance is 1st half pour mild haze, 2nd half pour cloudy, orange brown with nice sparkle, finger width foamy white head with decent retention and sudsy lacing. Taste is sweet fruit candy, some caramel and citrus with tart. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with average carbonation, mix of sweet, tart and mild dry bitter finish. Some alcohol warmth in stomach. Overall, complexity is subtle but makes an otherwise average beer interesting.

Bottle, 2013. Pours in hazy orange, almost amber body, low white head. Aroma has strong yeasty age flavour, evident notes of alcohol. Wood, little bit of banana in the background, probably coming from yeast. Taste has pretty high earthy dull bitterness, yeast after taste. Malty almost honey sweetness with light cloves. Body is full, heavy, medium-high carbonation.
