3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. The pour was a cloudy golden yellow with a slight orange hue and a huge (3-4 finger) white fluffy head that reduced to a medium cap, which in turn produced excellent spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a funky Belgian yeast, pine hops and a light bread malt with notes of banana, pear, citrus (lemon and grapefruit) and a light caramel sweetness.
The taste was lightly bitter and a tad acidic with a nice fruity presence from the start, progressing into a bitter sour taste with a big dose of yeast and a mild hoppy ending. The flavor lasted a decent while, fading slowly as a mild alcohol warming sensation took hold.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry watery texture and a ticklish carbonation.
Overall this was an exceptionally tasty brew which was nice and yeasty, yet offset slightly by the light hop presence and a mild fruity sourness...

Clear golden pour with a tall, chunky off white head. Aroma is floral, spicy and citrus hops, stone fruit esters, a little peppery spice, cereal, some wet limestone minerality and a hint of banana. Flavor is sweet cereal, stone fruit, spicy and citrus hops, pepper, medium breadiness, hay, bitter citrus, grass, and light licorice as it warms. Medium body, crisp and dry throughout with a medium, sharp, blanketing carbonation and a moderate acidity.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clean glowing yellow color. Aroma of golden hops, and sweet corn. Taste is crisp and dry, relatively zero aftertaste. Easily drank, great hidden alcohol content. Surprising clean and simple complexity for the style but overall another good product from The Bruery.

Pours an orange-brown with a white head, very cloudy. Medium body. Very yeasty and bready, a light taste of hops and a dry finish. I wish the dry finish was not there though, slightly off putting.
