1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
[ bottle ][ 1.5oz ][ @Tasting ][ $? ][ Schnapps snifter ][ 03.25.16 ]
murky gold, puffy dense white head. Estery green-Apple Paper nose, estery as fuck. Front palate is green apple and plastic conflict, lightly sweet dough and frothy mineral estery, full bodied but carbonation dialed so high it clashes. A mess.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle shared at the DC Tasting on 3/25/2016. Bought this from The Bruery’s Black Friday vintage sale for Society members on 11/27/2015. No idea why they still had some of this aging somewhere. Hazy golden orange with off-white head. Aromas of malt, corn, wheat. Tastes of wheat, floral notes, light citrus, malt. Medium body with a dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle from STLWill - thanks, Will! Pours a cloudy gold color with a huge white head that laces the glass. Notes of pale and sweet and pils and crackery malts, straw, grass, a little booze, and a hint of dried fruit. Medium-bodied, with high carbonation and a crisp, dry, malty, slightly boozy mouthfeel. I liked this a little more than I expected to.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750ml bottle -
A huge bottle to drink on a lazy Labor Day afternoon. The beer pours out a cloudy yellow body with a thick, merengue-like white head. Aroma has TONS of soapy/hand lotion like notes with cereal and light lemony hops. Flavor has a high degree of residual sweetness, earthy-wet hops, noticeable alcohol and light oranges. Way, way overpriced at $22 a bottle.
