3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(750ml bottle) Pours a super cloudy and sediment filled lemonade body with a thin, white head. Interesting multi-motion carbonation. Some bubbles actually seem to be moving at a slower rate than those in the middle of the glass? Sour and yeasty nose. Sweet candy-link flavour with an orangte finish. Biggest discrepancy between aroma and flavour I’ve ever encountered. Very good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sour, tart and citrusy aroma with yeast very present also. Cloudy yellow colour with white head that persists nicely. Sweet flavour with mild spiciness and a touch of bitter orange. Tartness re-appears in the finish. High carbonation and lively, effervescent body. Bottle (thanks to MartinT for bringing this one). Ok so I’ll list the crew present at the post-TapNY festival tasting since the rest of you are too lazy to do so... In no particular order: MartinT, CapFlu, Lubiere, Muzzlehatch, MaibockAddict, mkobes and myself).

750 ml bottle, from post-TAP NY tasting. Fairly sweet yesty nose; light lemony body, very cloudy. Sweet, citrusy taste (oranges), oh my it is sweet...lot of sweet beers that day...some nice hints of Concord grapes towards the end. Pretty fine I think.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is mild, boring and rather yeastly. Smells like new tennis sneakers. Pours moderately hazy blonde with frothy white head. Hoppy in the middle. Some sweetness at the end. I cant get over the New shoes smell and taste to this guy though.

Bottle...pours a slightly hazy blonde with medium head. Aroma of clove, all-spice, banana...Creamy balanced brew that hides the 9% very well. Yummy.

Bottled: Golden coloured. Fluffy white lasting head. Malt, alcahol and sweetness in the aroma. Yeast, sweetness, fruit and light alcahol sharpness in the flavour. Smooth and balanced. Pleasant alcahol burnt in the end at the palate.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy deep golden color, moderate white head, some lace. Aroma is somewhat light, some yeast, spice, and malt. Flavor has some banana, otherwise pretty sweet with hints of honey. Some alcohol takes away from the other flavors. Some alcohol burn, medium to full body. Pleasant but average.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A hazy dark gold, nearly but not quite an orange. Big foamy, rocky, chunky off-white head, great lacing. Sage honey and alcohol in the nose. Sweet up front with creamy texture. Nice feel to it with almond, citrus and honey flavors. Quite tasty but subtle. The 9% can sneak up on you! Quite good!
