3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A murky copper color, some head. Wheat, zest, malt, alcohol presence. Flavor is almost crudely craft beer-like. Feels like they tried too hard on this one. Metallic overtones that throw it off. Good base of flavor though. Too much going on. Too sweet.

Bottle, slightly different label art than pictured here. I liked this beer, right up my alley, though I’m not surprised it has a somewhat low rating. Very sweet, cloying, banana, clove, kinda bready. Nice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle. Poured clear deep golden hue with no head. Light carbonation. Complex flavor with bread, sweet candi sugar, apple, touch of pepper. Light to medium bodied. Bit too sweet to drink more than a glass.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyable beer. Tastes like an imperial belgian wit. Orange juice like body with belgian spices to finish off. Candy stickiness. Strong alcohol flavor but suits the big flavors fairly nice.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I purchased this at a bodega in Greenwich Village for a reasonable price. Unfortunately, the price bespoke of the perils of this ale. The beer pours a headless dark apple juice color. The aroma is mostly fine. Coriander, yeast, blah blah. Taste is way too sweet. It sticks to the mouth and doesn’t let go. There are not very many positive things to say about this brew.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
22oz bottle pours hazy pale orange with 2 finger head. Nose is all yeast spice and toasty bready malt, some spices and banana. Taste is sticky bready maple fruit, syrupy spice, overpowering yeast. Finish is super dry yeast spice, some stale toasty bread and earthy grain. Stale rotten fruit. Very boozy. Unbalanced. This was bad.
