3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at Shenandoah Throwdown. Was blackout at this point but apparently I really liked this beer. Poured a cloudy, glowing yellow with a giant, rocky, off-white head that had insane retention and lace. Lemon, citrus peel, perfumey hops, candi sugar, apricot in the nose. Taste is a bit boozy, sticky sweetness, caramel apple, candi sugar-forward with grassy/dried hops trying to balance. Still yummy.

Hazy orange color thin head with a light Belgian aroma. Strong Belgian I think not. Light malt flavor with subtle to very light spice and flavors. I felt this beer was just under done. Very mild way to mild for a Strong.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750mL bottle courtesy of Wasatch shared with the crew at the Brick Store.
Pours clear golden with a big fluffy white head that recedes quickly to a soapy swirl and small collar leaving some delicate lacing along the sides.
Aroma is one part earthy and one part sweet fruits. There is a herbal yeasty spiciness up front which melds nicely with pears and green apples.
The sweet fruits are still there in the taste but the herbs and spices are more prevalent than in the aroma and leave a dry woody finish at the end.
The mouthfeel is probably a little light for the style with a huge carbonation that doesnít help much given the slightly watery body.
Itís a solid effort from Squatters and though itís not world class itís drinkable with a highly earthy character.

Iím starting to think that Footbalm hates me since he keeps sending thes sort of thing to me. Nawwww, Itís not that bad...
Dark goldy amber like colour, Little bit of yeast and spice on the nose, semi sweet with a citrus fruity taste, some hop is present. Pretty decent overall, but not nearly as cool as the label.

From bottle on several different occasions. Hazy deep amber gold pour with a lively head that lasts and leaves drippy lace. Loaded with sweet fruit, spice, yeast and a nice maltiness. A very nice brew that will only get better with time.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at LS X. Hazy golden with a large white head on it. Aroma is a little sweet with a good whiff of yeasty spice. Tastes sweet and a bit bready, with the characteristic spicy coriander flavor from the yeast. Has some fruity characteristics to it, some light white grape and banana, and maybe a bit of orange. One of the better things to come from Utah.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle from THE superdave70 on 11/27/2009.
hazy burnt orange yellow with a small white head.
this smells very estery from a distance!... other aromas of bananas, oranges, bready yeast, caramel, spices, grass and herbs show up as well.
the palate is a really nice balance between the yeasty richness and dry spiciness. the flavor is the same as the aromaís characteristics/notes only richer.
its medium body is kept interesting with spritzy carbonation... yet it is soft... 7/4/8/3/16/3.8
