2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with Douglas88. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a moderate white head that lasted until mid-glass and left partial lacing. Light but very sweet aroma, almost like bubble gum. The flavor is wheat and yeast with just a hint of lemon at the finish and virtually none of the sweetness detected in the aroma. Finishes very dy with a lingering unpleasant aftertaste. Not very good.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Well I feel bad as I have sent a few of these out in trades as extras, mostly just as a novelty. Just a bit of flavor. Really difficult to create something that is close to a Belgian Ale in Utah.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (2003 or 2004) ... Cloudy golden ale with a mid-sized, tissue paper-like, white head. Good retention. Estery, phenolic, yeasty aroma dictates fruitcake, cinnamon, biscuit, clove, apple, pear, coriander and honey notes. Medium-bodied with an extremely drying mouthfeel. Fruity flavor is very low on residual sweetness and, but offers a tempered bitterness. Citric and moderately tart with a grassy note of clover. Tangy, Sahara-dry finish sucks all the moisture from my head. Over attenuated? Strange, interesting brew! Kudos go out to maniac for shipping the bottle my way!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer came in my beer club. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was sweet, sugary a bit yeasty and had a ripe fruit element. The flavor was sweet, tangy, yeasty and moderately fruity. Fairly full bodied. Nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2009 Bottle. Pours a light gold with a decent head. The flavor is smooth fruit with a earthy malt. A bit hoppy and spicy. A decent brew, too light though. Relaxing and smooth, just too thin. This rating is for the older 4% version, and the beer has changed a good bit since then.

Bottle. Poured a slighly hazy golden color with a thick white head. Strong lacing. Aroma is fruity with a bit of coriander. Flavor is light but nice. It is fruity with a banana Now and Later taste to it. Coriander is present in the aftertaste. I imagine this to be a very nice summer session beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a light golden color, no head. Aroma was mostly banana as was the flavor. Carbonation was mild and the body seemed thin and easy to drink, still decent though.
