4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Poured a straw color with a 1 finger white head that dissapated quickly.
Aroma: Lots of fruity esters. Pears, apples. Medium floral hop character. Some alcohol presence but not overpowering. soft Malty character
Flavor: Spicy, fruity esters supported by the pilsner malt character. Taste is dry but not too dry, balanced by the malt and the hops. Moderate bitterness and some floral hop flavor comes through.
Mouthfeel is solid. The balance between sweet but not too sweet and dry but not too dry is achieved. Medium body. Some alcohol warmth comes through. Very smooth.
Overall: I’d give this all 5’s if it was substantially carbonated. A very nice well balanced beer. I’ll pick up a few more and condition them for a few weeks and revisit this brew.
Good Job South Austin!

On tap. Served a hazy golden color with a small head. Aroma of yeast earthy, and grain. Taste of light fruit & malt sweetness, with bit of grain. Mild bitterness and a light fruity finish. Light body, and smooth. Decent beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at C&G. Pours a very clear light golden yellow. Little carbonation. Aroma is funky, Belgians yeast and sugar with a bit of grains. Flavor is also a bit funky with a grainy taste and Belgian sweetness. Some sugary notes. Strange finish.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden pour with thin, white head that dissapated quickly. Aroma is sweet, fruity, pineapple but . The flavor is also sweet, almost an alcohol sweetness that comes across like a higher ABV beer. Medium body with a slight oiliness. Aftertaste kinda lingers too.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 6/20
A funky earthy quality, somewhat acetic, yeasty aroma is present. A cloudy golden pour with a giant frothy mostly lasting white head and very little lacing. The taste is citrus up front followed by bread, grain, and hints of banana and spice. Medium body with lively carbonation. (The cork almost went through the ceiling when I removed the wire cage!) The texture is rather full and creamy. Overall, a nice beer that should be a good accompaniment to a number of food choices.

750 from Whole Foods Austin. Yeasty with banana. Nice aroma. Flavor hangs a bit. Slight tang. Not bad.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from South Lamar. Way carbed. The cork hit me in the nose before the cage was even unwrapped. Light pour with a massive white head. Aroma is grassy, a little spice, and carbonation. Taste is the same. All I taste is carb.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottle shared by a friend. Poured into a Lost Abbey glass. Bottom line, this beer is very green. Carbonation is a bit low, almost no head on the pour, the beer looks a bit dead. Aroma is too sweet with alcohol, sugar, and honey. Flavor is again affected by the undercarbonation, the flavors do not meld well together. Mouhtfeel is off. A disparate beer that has all the right elements. It seems this brewery is just a step away from something very nice but this product needs some work.
