Bottle: This one pours a nice amber color, with a small white head. Smell is incredibly yeasty, with citrus and orange smell in it. I also smell just a hint of banana. Taste is a little thicker on the banana side, but I also notice a nice maltiness to it. As I continue to drink, you can taste a bit of yeastiness. The alcohol is a tad hot, but should mellow out in time.

Opaque golden color with a average sized white head. Aromas of bananas and grapefruit as well as malts. Complex fruit flavors and a nice clean aftertaste. I need a few more of these jems.

A golden clear beer with a small white head that doesn’t last. Aroma is spice dominated with belgian yeasty notes. The flavor is so overwhelmingly spicy it hardly tastes like beer. I guess I missed the first instalments, but I probably won’t get around to giving this another chance in 4 years.

22 shared with brie at the hadley beach. This is inspired by Saisons and Triples. This pours, smells, and looks like a red saision. The flavors are fruity and acidic. The mouthfeel and mild sourness remind me of Hennepin. This was very refreshing and easy to drink on a hot day.

Pleasant flavor and aroma of spice, with appropriate sweetness. certainly didn’t knock my socks of - don’t know if it would be worth waiting five years to drink this one..

It has an amber color with a nice head. Goes away quickly. You can smell the alcohol along with ginger. Almost smells like a ginger ale soda. Oh...my...god... this has so much flavor! My mouth can’t even begin to describe. Ginger is the most present, then the alcohol comes in to play. Fruity/Grapefruit aftertaste. I’m def. going to age one. Hopefully I can last 5 years...

Pours a deep amber with a one finger white head. Very spicy and and sweet one the nose. Taste of tons of spice, including, ginger, orange, lemon and maybe coriander? Finish is spicy and sweet. Not crazy about this one.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear light amber color with lasting white head some lacing. A bit of small bits of yeast floating. Aromas of coriander, hint of banana, clove, with a little toasted malt in the background. Thicker body than I expected, high carbonation. At first very sweet but finishes dry and a little sour bitterness. Enjoyable now but wonder what it will taste like in 5 years.

Pours clear golden honey colored. Mildly sweet. Tastes of honey, orange, and spice. Little hop presence. A little disappointed. Maybe it needs 5 years.
