3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Surly taproom. Pours a hazy wheat color, some white head. Nice belgian aroma and flavor, but of course a bit weak. Solid beer, not sure if I would ever buy it again, but cool to see what they can do with spent grain.

Coppery gold. Light citric aroma, kiss of coriander. Soft in the mouth. Bright and dry. More coriander in the finish. I’m not crazy about the coriander here, but very solid.

Draft at Surly during RBSG grand tasting. Pretty good. Actually, I think I liked this better than the regular Seviin. Spicy with a little clove in there. Not bad.

Draught at the Surly Taproom. Good banana and light pear nose, with a bit of spice. Light medium straw. Mild fruity initial, banana and light fruit / mid palate flavors flatten out and add some clove notes / finishes with a pleasant touch of tartness. Medium body. Second runnings of a first-rate brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. A nice nutty brown light blurry one with a small sidesticking off-white top. The nose has a little bit of fruitiness to bit. Some yeast, some needles and hints of wood. Not bad, not extreme. Lots of flavor though. A suiting sourness is creeping next side to all the yeasty and fruity tones. The mouthfeel d is oily and the carbonation level is soft to average and prickling. Can’t see myself drinking this in larger quantities, but I’m enjoying this glass. Some yeasty alcohol, a little bit of sugar sweetness and a dry mouthfeel in the finish. 04.05.2013

10 oz draft at the Surly tasting room in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota. The pour is orange darker golden, clear, with a minimal off white head. The aroma is fruity sweet malt up front, nice pine hops, spice Belgian yeast. Fresh pleasant nose. The taste is a nice balance between the sweeter malt, hops and Belgian spice. The palate is light bodied, soft carbonation, and spice cracker malt finish. Easy drinking, nice enough.
