3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden-orange color (dare I say muted poppy) with a fluffy off-white head; itís effervescent and clear. Aroma is tangy, citrus fruity and sweet. Tastes sweet upfront, with prominent esters, a perfumy/floral note. Not sure which part of the tangy flavor/dry finish structure to contribute to the poppy seeds verses the belgian yeast (plus alcohol, hops, malt choices, minerals etc) but it works for me.
Falls between Between the three or four offerings that Iíve tried from Uncommon Brewers, this one seems to work the best overall, AND is closest to what would be expected from the beer style designated.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: medium honey-gold, with tons of tiny brown specks floating, suspension-like, throughout; a short, quickly fading bubbly white head; the appearance does not inspire confidence. Aroma: sweet and a little spicy on the nose, with notes of honey, a hint of clove and yeast, and some definite poppy undertones. Taste: excellent--honey, light graham cracker, lemon zest, poppy seeds, dry grass, and hay. Finish: slight zingy tingle and lingering sweet yeast, with a hint of funk coming through. Notes: This actually tasted a bit like Grandmaís lemon poppy seed bread, one of my all time favorite treats. Refreshing and light palate. Quite good, except for the rather unappetizing appearance.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: 16 oz. can from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a deep gold color with a small white head. The nose is very floral. The flavor has a light, malty sweetness to go with those floral hops. Light to medium body with a medium finish. I canít say I got anything from the poppy seeds. Good brew for a hot day.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Visual: Consistent artwork with their other Baltic Porter, the can features a drawing of the yellow poppy flower. Pours translucent golden orange with a decent-sized lasting foamy head, lots of activity and lacing.
Nose: sweet hoppy malts with some chamomile undertones
Attack: very cream-to-fizzy mouthfeel, 5/10-sweetness
Mid-palate: bitter yet clean poppy seed, honeyed malts, hints of PEACH, RED APPLE
Finish: crisp bitter bite, mellow hops, light sweet-bitter tingly malty finish.
Summary: Another good beer from Uncommon Brewers. This one is much lighter on the palate than the Baltic Porter and is balanced from start to finish, first sip to the last. Though not particularly complex or rich, it is quite drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Muddy Unfiltered Dark Yellow, Huge Head, Medium Lacing. Yeast and Poppy seeds Aroma. Belgian Yeast, toasted Poppy Seeds, Sweet Malt. If i did not read the label, I probably wouldnít be able to put my finger about the poppy seeds. When you know it, it does taste like it. You Could actually see some poppy seeds floating in it. Watery thin body. Reminds me of watered down Saison. Well Hidden Alcohol, very refreshing for high ABV. Iíve enjoyed it, Rather Nice.Plus, it is Organic, so it is good for you. At least, that is what you can tell your wife.

Thanks to Tim and Rachel for sharing! Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow from the can with little to no head or lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast and associated wheat esters, banana. Taste malty sweetness with a touch of Belgian yeast in there. Meh.
