3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The beer pours a pale yellow color with a rather large white head.
S: Not a bad nose. A bit funky with a little bit of feet and lemon grass, but otherwise some more typical aromas with lemon, pear, apple, and pepper. A touch of coriander as well as some pale bready malts.
T: The flavor is slightly sweet and malty, but there is a lot of fruit to it. Apples, pears, and lemons are the most prominent, and there is a touch of pepper and ginger. A mild yeastiness as well.
M: Medium bodied with a medium to high carbonation.
O: Surprisingly nice. Quite light and refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle… Farewell to ibrew2or3… Cloudy straw-colored ale with a mid-sized, fizzy, white head that dissipates slowly. The bouquet is peppery, grainy and lightly fruity. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is quite nice – tangy apricot ester and a mildly spicy phenol. Not as grainy as the aroma. Decently balanced. Finishes spicy, lightly tangy and mildly bitter. Bottle courtesy of Blazer06!

750mL from the brewery. The pour is a hazed, light yellow with a giant white head. Nice retention and big, white, sheety lace. Nose is sugary, lemonade, sweet honey, hay, and mild yeast phenols. Taste is dry, honey heavy, sweet lemonade. Palate is powdery, dry. Big carbonation detracts.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750mL pours clear gold with white head. The aroma offers up lots of sweetness in the form of apples and pears along with a bit of spicy hops and spicy yeast and a touch of acidity. The taste is pretty much the same but adds some grainy malts into the finish. So so brew but considering the high price . . . well.
