2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Yard House, Houston. It’s an unclear yellow-golden beer with a small off-white head. It’s quite butterscotchy on the nose, with canned fruits, pale malts, coriander and some orange peel. Medium body, a bit hard carbonation, quite dry on the palate. Mostly fruity flavor, with a little bitterness, orange peel and some spiced hints. Rather short finish. Luckily the butterscotch isn’t as evident in the flavor as in the aroma. Still a pretty boring one. 140516

Draft. Poured hazy amber orange color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeast, spice and sweet citrus aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet spice finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. The pour is cloudy, full hazy bright yellow with pineapple sorbet translucency and glow. Medium, meringue head. Nose is heavy floral with white grapefruit along with sweet vanilla. As it warms, more complexities like fresh cotton, lemon zest, grapefruit peel. Taste is melon sorbet, cantaloupe, pineapple, lemon. Palate is ultra soft and sorbet in feeling. Immensely drinkable with no water, soap, or chalkiness. White pepper is not too prominent. Wow- what an awesome beer.
