4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
650ml bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a one finger white head of fine bubbles, and some sediment floaters. Looks very much like a Belgian blonde. The aroma is boozy up front, with grapefruity hops, light orange/lemon peel, and yeasty notes. The taste is medium sweet with a beautiful fruity start, and as advertised, it is definitely citrus forward (light lemon candy, orange peel) with an undertone that I imagine is from the rosehips that makes me think Turkish delight. Bitter finish, with lemon notes, and spice. Lighter bodied with great carbonation, and lots of flavour. Southern Tier have themselves a mighty winner with this one. Definitely worth a try.

22. Pours a cloudy bright medium gold with a dense and fizzy white head that hangs around for a while. Floral, lightly minty, somewhat nitrogenous nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Floral notes, hay, grass, light lemon, and some biscuit on the mid palate. Very interesting combinations that do cool things together--nice expression of the palate. Mild finish.

Bottle. Pine & Citrus aroma. Hazy yellow body with sediment, medium lasting head, very nice lacing. Taste begins citrusy followed hops, pine and yeast. Lasting bitter finish. Reminds me of a strong Belgian-style IPA.

Seemed closer to a strong IPA or super hoppy imperial American to me. Was big and piney, and bitter. Some malt, but hops dominated it. Dry finish. Good, not dry.

Great beer. Hides the alcohol content well. Very balanced taste. Will definitely get again if I can find it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy light golden with a white head that fades to a film. Great simple aroma- bright and citrusy. Grassy, dry, some crackery pilsner malt and some chalky white pepper phenolic notes. Definitely some Belgian yeast notes, but stays pretty clean. Lively effervescent body. Flavor is dry. Has apparent crackery pilsner base characteristics. Some grassy and resiny C-hop notes come through the chalky Belgian yeast notes (although they are subtle). Simple, dry, highly drinkable. Has a long hoppy vegetal finish with some soft bitterness. Sessionable and doesn’t feel like 9% ABV.

I mean, ok for doing something new. But a 9% pale? Why? Hop heads won't order it.

Nice slightly fizzy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet fruity, winegum crocodiles, hops, flowers, dried fruits, minerals, butterscotch, cardboard, citrus. Taste is slightly grassy and fruity, hops, newly cut lawn, cardboard, bark, citrus peel, wet leafs. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.
