3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz. bottle. Interesting aroma, with notes of caramel, grain, toasted bread, hop spice, faint apple and touches of doughy yeast. Hazy red-orange in color, some slight sediment which was swirled and poured, with a frothy, lasting, off-white head and thick lacing to match. Flavor profile is somewhat bitter, fruity and malty, with aspects of bready wheat, citric rye, toasted and lightly sweet caramel malts, somewhat herbal, spicy hops, finishing with hints of red apple skin and even a bit of lemon. Some sharp effervescence on the palate but with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel, lightly astringent and mostly dry with a medium body. I had no idea what this was when I picked it up, and after drinking it, I still don’t. It’s certainly not bad, just a little rough around the edges (which may be authentic for the style, for all I know).

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tampa. Fl - Total Wine - 12 oz bottle. Pours a murky medium copper pour, bubbly off white head, thin lacing. Aroma is decidedly sweet with some date accents, a hint of white grapes. Flavor has the same general sweetness with some dates, toffee, some maple syrup, some citrus bitterness in the back end. Mouthfeel has a nice stickiness to it. A bomber of this would have started edging toward cloying,

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 2-28-13. Dry aroma features biscuit and dark chocolate scents. Pours a slightly hazy but mostly clear copper-brown with a moderate amount of long-lasting, taupe head. Produces good, long-lasting lacing. Dry taste features mineral water, light lemon, peach, cracker, and whole wheat bread elements. Long, dry aftertaste. Moderate body. Lively, frothy, and smooth in the palate. Enjoyable brew in a beer type in which it is hard to rate highly.
