(4/15/03): Hazy copper body with small beige head. Aroma is sweet, spicy (coriander) and malty. Taste is malty, sweet, coriander spicy, pine hoppy, and slightly smokey. Fairly light body. Alcohol is barely noticeable. Well-balanced yummiful beer! Bought a whole case, so I'm gonna have fun drinking one of these each year.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
3rd LCRBM. Malty, slightly yeasty aroma with apple and butter. Melon in the flavor. Wood, flowery and earthy hops. Just a bit thin (because of age?) and therefore somewhat alcoholic. Citrus and red berries in the aftertaste. Still an enjoyable beer.
