3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at brewery. Hazy golden with a thin ring of foam around the edge. Beautiful citrusy wheaty aroma with notes of coriander and oats. Flavor is much the same, with some biscuity yeastiness, coriander, orange rind, dry earthy fruitiness, and some sort of dusty tone. In the end, it really just didnít wow me

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
After reading all the reviews, I am shocked. I thought this was a great beer. Orange in color and I loved the turbinado sugars used. Sweet and definitely has some banana flavor to it. Lacing stuck to the glass. Great beer!

Drank from the can. Aroma is pale and spicy. Taste is crisp and spicy. This brew is pretty solid even though I see itís rated poorly. Crisp and refreshing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz can courtesy of alagnak. The pour is mostly clear orange golden, on the darker side of that spectrum. The head is off white, and falls pretty quick. The aroma is cereal grain, very light floral hops and a decent blast of fruit esters. The flavor is mostly the fruit esters, clove, with a bit of grain and the floral hops mixed in, though not really integrated. The palate is medium bodied, sweetness carries the lingering finish. Too much cloying sweet, and too much clove ester for my liking.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can thanks to Tim. Pours a cloudy yellow with a thick frothy white head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is yeast and fruit. Medium mouthfeel with a strong sugary fruit and sweet finish. A decent Belgian from Upslope.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz can. Pours clear golden orange with a small white head that quickly goes to a thin collar.
The aroma is sweet bready banana malts.
The flavor is sweet sugary malts and bananas with a little grassy bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall, I didnít care for it - way too much sweet banana.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can - hazy gold - mostly diminishing head - nose is very sweet - dense sugar, frosting kind of sweetness - there is also a fair amount of banana and off, dirty phenols - watery texture, despite itís rather strong carbonation - very sweet throughout, with a lot of messy, abrasive spiciness - quite a lot of banana and a bit of clove - tastes more like an imperial hefe, but even as one of those, it sucks - I honestly donít know why I keep trying Upslope beers - I had given up on other breweries for burning me far fewer times (Iím looking at you, Asher) - yea, Iím pretty sure Iím done with Upslope.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can poured a hazy tarnished gold with a large lasting white head. Aroma of bread, coriander, citrus and light yeast. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, coriander and yeast with a smooth lingering coriander finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour is a sparkling clear, golden color with a small, white, fizzy head which is mostly diminishing and leaves minimal lace. The nose is fairly blah with some candi sugar, light vegetable, bready notes, dusty yeast, light orangey esters. The flavor is better with no vegetable notes, still estery, candi sweet, dusty, bready, almost doughy, and a bit of spice emerging. The palate is decent being lively, slightly warming, medium, and creamy. The finish is still sweet with candi sugar, some black pepper, light orange, and a faint herbal note appearing. Actually the beer didnít seem to be as bad as my ratings would imply. But a vegetable note is always a bad start to any beer, and most light Belgians always benefit from some balance to the sweet and yeasty notes but this one had little. My least favorite from this brewery.

Really Uplsope? Really? Hereís the problem....stop doing these íLimited Releaseí XXX-Style ales....see íMexican Style Lagerí, íForeign Style Stoutí, and now this swill. Iím on to you. You are just pissing around trying to find something you can copy that people will like b/c you donít have the chops to do something original. Unclean wheat finish. Off vegetal qualities in the taste. Smells okay.
Really? You try this in the same town as a brewery that puts out White Rascal and this is the best you can do. Lame. I donít even like WR that much. Prefer Celis White if I can get it and Hoegarrden is just fine. Just stop. Youíre embarrassing yourself. And Colorado brewing. Stick to your fine Pale Ale and uh, sure thatíll do IPA, until you can do something original.
Just glad I didnít pay for this. Someone gave it too me. What does that say?
