FlacoAlto's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20

A steady pour into my Teku glass produces a ¼-finger thick, pale head. The beer is a pale-amber / gold color that shows a very light, hazy, straw-gold hue when held up to the light. The nose smells of sweet clove and fruity esters, and some cracker like & dried hay like grain notes up front backed by spicy, earthy notes that begin to creep in towards the finish; this an has a wholesome, almost savory, pepper like character to it.

This has a light prickly carbonation, this works well with light, quaffable body that isn’t watery, but has an eminent quaffability to it, with just a touch of viscosity to it to give the beer some body. The long finish has some spiciness, a subtle palate warming character, and some lingering, spicy, higher alcohols to it. Lots of clove notes (which lingers on the tongue), some nice, wholesome pale malt notes that provide flavors of Saltine crackers, touches of white bread, some straw like notes, as well as fruity esters reminiscent of melons, light green apple, some white grape flavors, as well as a touch of spicy, woody, black pepper. My lips have a hint of spiciness from the pepper, but overall the pepper is kept quite subtle here, and is quite well done and integrated with the other flavors.

Not bad, the pepper is certainly done quite well. The Belgian flavors are nice with the fruit and spice notes, but for some reason this seems not quite there. Still this is enjoyable, and shows quite a bit of promise.

Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of white fruit, pepper, some spice into a bit of earthy, yeasty notes with a hint of coriander, some bready, doughy notes as well. Taste was a mix of bread, dough, yeast, some white fruit into a bit of pepper, white fruit, some spice, finishing sweet.

From a growler. Pours an extremely light, cloudy yellow. Big funky aroma of banana esters, lemongrass, and cloves. Lovely light, refreshing lemon taste with banana, a spicy pepper bite, and lots of earthy yeast. Very light body; low carbonation. This is my first Ten Fifty-five beer and I’m definitely looking forward to trying more from these guys in the Old Pueblo.

Shared from a growler, cloudy and golden pour with a white head. Fruity, yeasty and earthy. A nice golden ale, pretty tasty.

Hazy gold pour, white head. Yeasty esthers, unripe stone fruit, some sweet honeyed notes, no hops to speak of. A tad sweet but overall nice.
