3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden color with small white head.
Aroma: I have NO idea what´s going on in this one. Cake, sweet cookies, some spicy lemon, feels like the original flavours have blended together. Bubblegum, sticky, rotten, strange moldy hay...
Taste is: funky, yeasty, banana, overripe fruits, orange, chocolate, tastes a bit moldy, pineapple and other tropical fruits.
More interesting than good...

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pours a clear bright gold body with a thin fizzy white head that faded pretty quickly. The nose is just as oxidized as the first two, which is to say plenty. No noticeable spice notes as far as the lime goes, though there may be a touch of yeast. The flavor is pretty poor, very thin and oxidized, though it’s a bit more drinkable than the first two. A little bit of alcohol on the finish and a little sweetness. Still not something that you’d want to drink a bottle of by yourself. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with light fizzy carbonation. Another clunker, that makes three in a row. Nothing even remotely resembling the commercial description left here.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sample from a 22oz bottle. Clear yellow orange gold color. Minimal khaki head. Some orange citrus floral nose. Kind of bigger body. Lighter but kind of pronounced carbonation. Light sour, mild bitter taste. Yeasty, bit medicinal? Not digging it

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
At Falling Rock 12/15/2012. Murky kinda opaque golden/copper with a fluffy white head with lots of lace. Nice perfumy aroma of grapes, fresh cut flowers, spicy orange zest. Flavor was zesty and smooth with a kind of wine-like essence, nice floral yet subtle hoppy bitterness, a little orange, and some gentle oak and toffee. Very nicely balanced and smooth, with nothing offending or too heavy.

On two at ChurchKey in DC. OMG THIS IS EPPICK!!! Beautiful golden color with a small white head and great lacing. Honey, lime, and wheat aroma with sherry oxidation. Nice but oxidized flavor with wheat, honey, lime, and sugar. Medium-full body with a smooth mouthfeel and lowish carbonation. Surprisingly tasty brew.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Maybe it’s the age...but...not much aroma to this beer. If anything, reminiscent of a saké than anything else. Flavor brings out some more complexity and is sweet, but still a bit of a let down.
