4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thanks to goldtwins for sharing - effervescent, cloudy gold beer - huge herbal and floral aroma, with notes of orange peel, but nothing is overpowering - rich yet subtle - very full carbonation in the mouth - nice and dry, with flavors of citrus, melon and tropical fruits - slight herbal bitterness, with sage, and possibly rosemary - lingering white wine-like tannins in the finish - beautiful beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by goldtwins at a Bruery tasting. Pale golden, cloudy beer. Aroma is absolutely loaded with bright floral lavender, coriander, peach and soft wheaty spiciness. There is also a lot of character from the yeast in here... a very complex mix of phenolics and floral spiciness. Light sage and a zesty citrusy flavour. Soft lingering fruitiness as well. Rich wheaty texture with a nice spritzy texture. Very floral and complex... man, this is killer stuff.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Body-hazy, dark yellow with a thin film of bubbles. Taste-tastes like an Imperial Wit. Not a lot of clove/banana, not necessarily “imperial” tasting. Pool water, cotton, unsweet berries, blood, unique with a strong taste of blood on the backend, light apple, very soft. Not too shabby.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, sampled at the Woodshop Quad Tasting. Wetherel poured me a glass of this, noting the re-marked ABV on the bottle for the imperial version. Golden yellow color that develops a beautiful cascading head that settles into a rocky foam. Appearance is perfect here. Dry peach and spice aroma with some lemon and clove. Flavor is mildly sweet with notes of ginger spice, peach and wheat grain. Easy finish. Something you can session for sure.
