3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a spare, fizzy, white head, diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is average malt (bread, biscuit), average hop (grass, flowers, perfume), heavy yeast (dough, barnyard, horse blanket) with notes of banana, bubble gum, and pear. Medium bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation, and a chalky finish. Long duration, moderate sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

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!

Bottle from strykzone. Thanks! Very interesting beer. Pours a hazy godl with a big white head. Aroma of yeast, banana, honey, apple juice and malts. Flavor is yeasty, sweet, a tad spicy and a very small hop profile. I do believe this beer is way underrated.

12 ounce bottle from State Line Liquors, opened 5/16/11. Pours a hazy pale orange color with a medium sized fizzy white head. Decent head retention and lacing.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Raleigh World Beer Fest. I was told this was a witbier so I am rating it as such. Pours cloudy, neon yellow with a small white cap. Great aroma of bubblegum, yeast, cloves, allspice. Flavor is sour peaches with bubblegum, bananas, and a little soap in the end. Medium bodied with a slightly creamy texture. 7% is nicely hidden. Yum.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery in SLC. Dark orange and clear color with a large white head. Nose is sweet bananas and bubble gum with some artificial sugar and candy notes as well. Light and crisp, a bit of a sweet yeast bite present. Some bubble gum and soap with the banana flavor... watermelon and peaches as well. Artificially sweet and cloying. Unbalanced sweetness but still a commendable effort for keeping it at 4% ABV.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz bottle. Bottled 01/04/12.
It pours a brilliant clear gold, one of the clearest most pure golden-hued beers I have ever seen. The head is foamy and white and leaves some nice lacing.
The smell is okay. Huge esters but honestly this almost just smells like an adjunct lager without the corn. It has that sourness to it that isn’t "sour" but that tart AAL scent.
The flavor is flowery and yeasty. It has a decent sweetness, some metallic flavors, and basic grain flavors. Not too bitter.
It is just really plain, there is nothing that distinguishes it besides its gorgeous appearance.
