2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I had been pleased with all Uinta brews I had until this one. Had a strange tinge to it that I didn’t care for. Not horrible, but not good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy, orange. Light aromas of clove, crisp apple, bananas, and slightly peppery. Banana and clove flavors with light spice and a hint of noble hop and accompanying bitterness. Light and dry.
The bittering hops are in a weird power struggle with the spice and cloves. Flavors don’t marry together all that well, but drinkability isn’t sacrificed.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle: pours a clear bright golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet biscuity malty nose with some light fruity esters. Starts with good fullness and fine carbonation with nice malty sweetness and doughy yeast with a touch of clove before a slightly drier and smooth finish. True to style and enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a clear golden color with a white head. Aroma is banana, clove, bubblegum, herbs, caramel, dough, and cereal. Taste is banana, clove, bitter, and lemon. I really wish the taste were as complex as the smell.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yeasty, grassy, sugar and ester filled citrus aroma. Nice looking clear orange. Sweet biscotti taste. Teases sourness but never really goes that way. Sweet and salted effect of Belgian yeast in a lighter beer. Lightweight body which packs enough bite to keep it out of the session range. On the other hand, you’d be hard pressed to find near 7% alcohol in this thing.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a golden color, leaves a nice head and has a mild fruity aroma. Taste is clean and crisp with a little sweetness. Smooth on the palate with a very slight carbonation. Overall, an enjoyable beer from start to finish.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a dark golden with a small head. Some sweetness in the nose with a slightly metallic smell to it. A lot of sweetness coming from that yeast used in Belgians. Not a great one.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Honey, butter, grapes (wine) in the nose. Cloudy straw color with thin head. Initial is very sweet. Mid palate jumps up with some nasty, harsh fruit (apricots?) and then bitterness. Final is mildly sweet. Medium-thin body. Maybe hopped up too highly for the style. Okay.
